This quote really says it all. I’ve been removing more little things that are just clutter. Old pictures that are duplicates( like @ 200), old pens, those old family books I mentioned in another post and more. I’m up to 600 items. Of course, 6 pens is only 6 little items, but I still count […]
Our neighbor is dying. She has stage 4 Ovarian cancer and has survived for almost 4 years but now things have taken a turn for the worst. She’s 2 years older than me or B’s age 67. She was a kindergarten teacher and hadn’t planned to retire but once diagnosed she did. After a rigorous regimen […]
This is a beautiful cookbook. I absolutely love the pink cover and the recipes are wonderful too.

I’m back in the swing of things with bread making. So, the last loaf of a sourdough but it wasn’t the dough that rests and goes thru the full autolyse and bulk fermentation. I decided to get out my Tartine Bread book which by the way reads like a chemistry class. It is quite challenging […]
What a horrible, unthinkable thing to have happened.
We must start banning these assault type weapons.
So much death and horror at what was to be just a fun evening out.
So hard to even comprehend.
It’s a lovely day and a lovely birthday. We started out by going to the farmers market and got some nice veggies. Then we went for a coffee and pastry. Then over to the bank for B’s gas money. Then I decided not to go buy a piece of cake at Safeway but make something. […]
