I love food, and part of my plant-based cooking excursions have been to incorporate as many healthy habits, as well as recipes, into our routine. It's been scary fun *interesting* testing out various internet recipe finds on my family. My husband grew up eating meat and typical American fare, so finding recipes that 1. don't … Continue reading Food Fun – Pita Pocket Joes
It's that time of year where we take stock and reevaluate and set goals! Or when we think about our intentions for the next year. Or maybe you are in the camp of not doing anything of the sort. Either way, the end of the year is here! I went back and reviewed the blog … Continue reading Resolutions or Goals?
The notification that I've had this little corner of the internet for 9 years popped up today. Laughing, I joked to my husband that other than him and the kids I don't think I've ever committed to anything that long. The thought took me back to where we were 9 years ago: getting ready for … Continue reading 9 Years
We love Halloween at our house. Like...a lot. I laughed my head off a few years ago when I saw a neighbor’s skeletons in the yard up to all kinds of fun pushing a wagon and riding a tricycle. Made me chuckle every time I walked the dogs past the house in October. Now we … Continue reading Halloween!
Sitting here socially distanced and masked up since early spring, I often wonder about how much people have likely ramped up drinking - out of fear. Out of boredom. Anxiety. Anger. So much anger. Because yep, it’s an election year on top of everything else. Just days away from an election that will determine our … Continue reading 3.5 years
A couple months ago I was at the dog park with with all 3 of our dogs. Everything was fine, then Hippo ran straight for the fence, slipped underneath (the fence is broken, I had no idea) and attacked another dog. We got really lucky that he didn’t injure the other dog and it was … Continue reading Heartbroken
Quarantining, pandemics, civil unrest, politics, hurricanes and typhoons, 2020 you're not playing. Like many people, current events and a near-constant onslaught of horrifying information coming at us over this year has left me antsy. We covered an overview of American History this year in homeschool. We discussed not only what was in the text book, … Continue reading Do Something. Anything.
We'd planned to get out of the house for a few days and finally made it to a day when the weather cooperated and we didn't have other plans. After errands were ran, dogs walked, and groceries purchased - it was time to spend the rest of the day at a place I frequented as … Continue reading Afternoon at the Lake
I was able to escape my family yesterday for an outing (with masks and social distancing, of course) and took my 2 little dogs for the adventure. I met up with my mom and our friends and walked nearly 3 miles around Coupeville, WA - which is a lot for little dogs with short legs! … Continue reading Corona-Style Visits
With the playgrounds closed, the only thing there is to do lately is to go on walks, hikes, or bike rides. (Or bake). I love to cook and bake as much as the next person, but I can only eat so much sourdough bread. I started painting rocks. I thought it might bring a smile … Continue reading Corny Things
