High School, here she comes

I swear it was yesterday and I was getting her ready for middle school.  I’m afraid I might have blinked one too many times… because tomorrow, my big girl starts high school.  Lot’s of friends have asked if she’s nervous… or excited… and I have to say that she is cool as a cucumber.  She…

Morning Yum

I’m one of those souls that appreciates learning from others.  I mean, Goodness Gracious… sometimes there’s no need to re~invent the wheel… or the bread, as the case may be.  So, when the title of a recipe says ‘it’s the best ever’… I’m likely to believe it.  And try it.  And I did just that…

Making Memories… Ranch Style

Summers hold some of my fondest memories.  Hot days and cool evenings in the mountains of far west Texas.  Thank God we still have a place in our family where our kids can share some of the same experiences.  My mom used to put my sister and I on a bus in San Antonio and…

Hippity Hoppity… Easter’s On It’s Way

Easter is really one of my favorite holidays.  For me, Easter is about new beginnings.  Life after Death.  A time when our spirits warm at the possibility of a new… and different… and better life.  Easter comes in the Spring for goodness sake… every where I look it seems like the universe is singing the…

I {Heart} Gardening, So Does Hotshot

We had company for a visit on Sunday and I had a sort~of photo op set up for the occasion.  Mostly because I knew I would need help to make it happen.  I can always super~duper count on my b-i-l, s-i-l, and their kids.  I made them some yummy red velvet cupcakes and gave everybody…

Early Spring and Hotshot

We have had the weirdest weather this year.  It’s unusually warm… trees are blooming, the garden centers are packed, the grass is already growing (which means an extremely long mowing season… sigh.)  I’ve got a serious case of spring fever.  So we spent a little time outside this weekend.  And look what I found… Hotshot was…

31 Days of Things You Should Know {Day 24}

It’s kind~of ridiculous that I started the ’31 Days of Things You Should Know’ back in October.  I’m just going to go ahead and say that I’ve had a few things on my plate.  I’ve been streching and growing and learning and trying to figure things out.  I’ve started grad school… taking my first class…
