Times Change

A little more than four years ago, Big Daddy and I departed on a new adventure.    We moved five hundred miles away from our little white house in Illinois and moved to small town Ohio.  Big Daddy set up an office off of the living room and began to telecommute full time.  The telecommuting years […]

October kind of went out like a wet sneeze and a shudder.  We had great weather for Trick or Treat on the 30th.  It was cool and dry, just the right kind of weather for tromping up and down the streets for candy. However, the bounty of good weather ended Friday night as Big Daddy […]

Pumpkin Pancakes

This weekend, like a lot of the country, we slid into fall. I pulled out my sweater and the air was brisk and cool. I can’t say I’m sad, of course, considering my long love affair with Fall. I don’t mind the cooler days and brisk nights. We leave the windows open all night long […]

Back from Vacation–AND the menu plan.

On Saturday morning, we left sunny blue skies and temperatures warm enough for Baby Bee, who is always cold, to wear nothing but a t-shirt out in the morning… …and arrived home to blowing snow with accumulation. For years Big Daddy and I have talked about the move south and this was the first trip […]

When a plan isn’t a plan–AND the menu plan

Once upon a time, I was very rigid. I don’t handle change well. It’s genetic. Then I met this guy and he was the opposite of me. Big Daddy believes in living life on the fly. Over the years, we’ve done what we do best. We’ve melded together. I’ve become less rigid. I accept change […]
