Mushrooms Blooming Over Sleeping Cats

Dear Peeps,   It is a lovely, lovely Tuesday!  A milestone day, for personal reasons, and I am so happy.  With that, let me say that I have missed being here, but life has kept me very busy.  I have had two singing lessons now and I love the training that I am receiving.  I had NO idea that just… Read more →



No, no, no, I don’t have chickies.  Maybe some day.  But then again, maybe not.  Meanwhile, I do have chickens in the kitchen. I found a LOVELY set of four plates and four mugs recent at GW Boutique.  I fell hard peeps, which is what I sometimes do.  Yep, I’m a hard faller.  Six dollars for the whole set.  I… Read more →


Rutabaga of Spring, Fly Me Over a Rainbow

Just put all the words together to make a title, I always say. Dear Peeps, I have really enjoyed my rice cooker!  It has a steamer component, so I have been able to very easily make steamed brown rice and veggies.  Oh my!  Do you like rutabaga?  I think it’s one of those things that maybe you love or you… Read more →

Scenes from Around the Apartment

Dear Friends, It is somewhat late, and I have Pandora playing.  The washer and drying are getting all of my clothes clean and dry.  There is something so sweet about being home.  I cannot even put it into words!  Of course, home is where the heart is, and my heart loves many places.  There is just something about being inside… Read more →


Wild Cats Near the Kitchen

Dear Peeps, Here I come dragging in with another excuse.  Been busy.  Sorry I have been absent.  One of the problems still seems to be that I am on the go so much, and while I LOVE my LG Pad I am not so fast on it when it comes to blogging!  That said, here we are now.  Get some… Read more →
