I promise I won’t talk about them again for a while. I promise. I can’t help it, though. It’s become a tad bit of […]...

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the U.S. Thanksgiving….poor holiday. It’s practically looked over nowadays, what with Christmas only a month later. Now, this year, Black Friday (the biggest sale/shopping day if the year here in the states) is even encroaching on the day. Black Friday always falls on the day after Thanksgiving. It’s a day […]...

I’m posting on a Sunday. This is totally weird. It’s like I’m in the Twilight Zone or something, except in color, and with baked goods instead of, like, scary aliens or murderous dollies. Several weeks ago, as I was perusing Pinterest for nothing in particular, I came across this gorgeous photograph of flowers laid out […]...

I have a new obsession lately. You may have noticed it, as it’s been making itself known on the blog. I am recently obsessed with painting my fingernails wild and whacky colors. Here’s the thing: I hate painting my fingernails. Hate it. I love having my fingernails manicured and looking nice, but I hate painting […]...

If you follow me on Facebook, you probably know that I’ve been running in the mornings. Usually. I mean, mostly. I run most mornings. It really just depends on whether it’s too hot. Or early. Or late. Or whether I’m tired, or hungry. Anyway. I usually go, but I’ve lost some of my oomph for […]...

Yesterday I admitted my dislike for pumpkin pie. Today, I want to let it be known that my dislike doesn’t extend to all things pumpkin. One of my favorite treats ever is fresh pumpkin bread and I love pumpkin seeds, but even though I don’t like pumpkin pie, that doesn’t mean I don’t have a […]...
