A Five Day Work Week?

This week I have to go to work five whole days in a row. What!? It has been a long while since I had to work a five day work week. My body sort of does not remember what that means. Ugh. Last night, post Downton Abbey, I set my alarm for 5:55 AM. Yuck!…… Continue reading A Five Day Work Week?

Inspired by Julia

Good evening, blog readers. Tonight I was inspired by Julia. Julia Child, that is (of course!!!) and I have to thank my blog reader and friend, Marilyn because she gave me Julia’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking several years ago. It is (obviously) one of my favorite cookbooks. I have been craving mushrooms lately.…… Continue reading Inspired by Julia

  Some how it has been a full week since my last blog post! I am not quite sure how that happened – but here I am to make up for it! On Tuesday morning I had a very fall / winter-ish breakfast. HOT oatmeal. The one thing that made it summery was the amazingly…… Continue reading Tuesday

Go Out & Vote!

Happy Election Day, everyone! I love Election Day.  Even though it might be sort of a bad night for progressives, I still love seeing democracy in action. If you have not done so already, go run out and vote! I took the train in today, I had a good half hour of reading on my…… Continue reading Go Out & Vote!


Breakfast in the new place…

Hi All. I can’t believe I have been in my new place for three mornings already. Saturday morning I went over to Seven Stars to get a ginger biscuit and a cup of coffee because I had no food in the house. Saturday I went to three different grocery stores to start building a “pantry”.…… Continue reading Breakfast in the new place…

Abnormal day…

Hi everyone: I had a day that was sort of out of the ordinary, at least for me. I did not leave the house until about 8:30 this morning. I took advantage of the later than normal work day and had breakfast at home. And not just any breakfast, I had oats in a jar.…… Continue reading Abnormal day…

What a beautiful start to the day!  The rains are probably still on their way, but for now I will definitely…… Continue reading Breakfast and Sunshine
