15 years ago my husband and I tied the knot in a double ceremony with my longtime friends, my mentors, my family. After a party for some other friends, we got in the car and began a drive straight through from San Jose, CA to Vancouver, BC. Oddly, after over 20 years of friendship, it… Continue reading It’s My Anniversary!
I can’t get that question out of my mind. Will anyone come to save us if the lame duck’s coup attempt succeeds? Have we, the people, earned enough of the pity and sympathy of the free world to want to help us? Or will they turn a blind eye to all that is happening to… Continue reading Will Anyone Come to Save Us I Wonder
This is a very serious question. Will we survive 32 more days? Over the past couple of days, the lame duck, listening to someone who had, or maybe still has, a job that was to help a foreign country look better to the United States. In fact, many of the lame duck’s former employees seem… Continue reading Will We Survive 32 More Days?
Sorry all, very worn out today. We had an all day retreat on TEAMS today at work. It was, in my opinion, successful. However, it has also drained me. Need to relax and rejuvenate this evening. Happy a great Friday evening!
A puzzle is like a good book. Each is one of those things where I sit down and think I’ll read for a few minutes, or just I’ll just work until I find that one piece. Then before I know it, it is two hours later. That is what happened this evening with our current… Continue reading Puzzles and Books

Last night I finally finished the last piece of the puzzle for family care packages. I put the boxes together and addressed them so they’d be ready to pack today. We even finalized the annual update so I could include it in the packages. After work today, I moved quickly and steadily to stuff as… Continue reading A Funny Thing Happened at the Post Office
Congratulations President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris on your 306 Electoral College votes today. One step closer. Hang in there, we are behind you and wish you great success in your new roles.
It was another day in the kitchen with more baking—all in all, I think I’ve made about 500 baked goods in the last 60-hours. This morning I had to do some flow icing on the sugar cookies I made yesterday. It is fun to do, but boy does it take a while. Even with limiting… Continue reading Butter and I Have Come to an Understanding
Today was almost a full day in the kitchen. I started my gifting baking today, well actually last night, with more to come tomorrow. Last night I tried, for the first time, Papa Joe’s family Pinwheel cookie recipe. I’ve watched him make them several times, even helped a couple of times, but going independent…well…it wasn’t… Continue reading Butter: A Love/Hate Relationship
