We’re Baaaa-ack!

Whew! It’s been awhile, but there’s good reason – we’ve finally moved into our first house! The people we bought it from didn’t really clean much (found out later they hired movers, so there was not much cleaning) either before we moved in, or in some places, well, hardly ever. I went through a 100 …

Bullet Journals and Endless Boxes

Apparently I've been living under a rock, because I'd never heard of Bullet Journals until stumbling across a recommended YouTube video today. Its an interesting concept - a combination journal and to do list and calendar. I like the idea. I started with a day runner, but it hasn't been as handy as I'd like. …

Saving…Menus?

I was watching Jacques Pepin: Heart and Soul tonight and it was the episode called "Menu Memories" - beyond a delicious looking coffee panna cotta that I might have to try a version of, the episode ended with Jacques surrounded by several journals of menus he's done for events, as well as family dinners. Thanksgiving, …

I haven’t disappeared!

I'm sorry for the radio silence! Things have been super busy here lately. We close on our new house in 3 days! Between getting ready to pack up the house, dealing with school/work stuff, and stressing over everything that needs to happen, I haven't been on here much. Plus, I'm doing my best to eat …

I’m still here!

It has been a crazy month. We're still around, beginning packing, and there's been tons of stuff going on at school.... just so much to do! This week is Spring Break (finally!) and I'm going to cook for real at least one night this week - we've been trying to clean out cabinets, so we've …

Sprouts and Spring!

I ordered seeds. I know, I said I wouldn't. I lied. I want to garden, and knowing that there is a house in our very near future makes that urge even worse. I've come to terms with the fact that I'll probably still be in pots this year, but its okay, because they'll be in …

Kitchen waste to … Garden?

I watched a show on TV the other day (I forget what Create TV program it was) and they were talking about growing food from kitchen waste. I've seen bits about it here and there, and last weekend Brent and Becky's had a free class about it (which I missed due to a screwed up …

Fossils and a Beautiful Day!

On Sunday we had beautiful temperatures! After the quilt show with the BFF, I came home, changed clothes, and the husband and I went out to York River State Park. I read somewhere that you could hunt for fossils there! There are actually three places in Virginia, and I don't know how I missed this …
