I'm thankful that today, the day after a fantastic weekend, was not a let-down like so many days after holiday weekends are. We had a FABULOUS weekend! For starters, we've been watching the first season of "Once Upon a Time", a show based on all the fairy tales we learned as children. I admit, I … Continue reading Fairy tales and four-days
I know it's not *technically* summer yet, but it's in the 90's in El Paso, so it feel like summer. Crazy to think we have over a month until the actual solstice! Anyway, I digress. Summer has great memories. I'm pretty sure I've blogged about this before. Here's a list of things I love about … Continue reading Summer nostalgia
I have to say... I quite content right now as a stay-at-home wife/nanny/tutor/seamstress/entrepreneur????/short-term missionary/volunteer "Sunday school" teacher/dog trainer... I think some of the best jobs are ones whose titles you really can't pinpoint to a couple words. Even with Husband Man being gone for almost three weeks (he comes home in two days, wheeeee!!) I've … Continue reading A challenge for every day of the week

Yesterday on our way back to the house from school, we stopped by Grandma and Grandpa's to wet down the pig. 1) They have a pig. 2) They have to wet it down??? Okay. So. Anyway. … Continue reading Tales from the farm

He was supposed to leave yesterday, but on our way to the airport he got a call saying his flight had been cancelled. I'm thinking it's because of the crazy winds … Continue reading The early bird gets the… workout
Tonight for a change in view, I decided to get my $10 Walmart patio "furniture" (just a chair and cheapo table) and bring it out front and sit like an old lady with my iced tea and my.... laptop. Yes, like an old lady... who's up to date with technology. Anyway. A friend of mine … Continue reading So, this is home.
Really. The heat isn't that bad. We've been in El Paso for about two hours... and it's not so awful. At least not humid! Oklahoma was waaayy worse. We have been up the last two mornings to work out... go us! Before we left for El Paso this morning, we also went to the botanical gardens … Continue reading Well, it’s a dry heat.
Wowzers. The weekend of the Fourth of July. I'm posting now from our hotel room in Oklahoma City. After roughly ten hours of driving, we're safe and sound for the night. Because of all the commotion in the past few days, I wasn't too keen on blogging tonight, but as Aaron reminded me, the longer I … Continue reading The Fourth of July Blur!

Guilt level: 0.I love being able to hang out with friends pretty much whenever.I love being outside and being active. Running, hiking, … Continue reading >Summer observations
>Last week when I went to the store, I filled up about half of my cart with produce. I should have thought through my week to realize that I wouldn't be home a whole lot to cook, but thankfully most of it was still good today.I had two bananas that were very very ripe and … Continue reading >New summer food ideas
