As mentioned last week, I had a graduation celebration to attend on Sunday. We had five graduates to applaud—one college, three high school, and one pre-school. All of them got their picture under the grad balloons, but the party was officially for the high school graduates. We’ll give the college graduate their own party later… Continue reading The Long Drive Was Worth It

DCI Season Kicks Off
We are sitting at an AMC Theater this evening. Every year for the past couple of years, DCI has live broadcast the first competition of the season. It’s the first look at what the season might look like over the next couple of months. It’s like the beginning of the summer season in Martha’s Vineyard… Continue reading DCI Season Kicks Off
It’s Official! Now What? Who’s Next?
For the first time that I know of, a constitutional right has been taken away by the Supreme Court. There have been many unpopular decisions over the years. Many decisions that caused angst and divisions. However, those decisions were not overturned. One of my first thoughts was, is the Supreme Court now going to start… Continue reading It’s Official! Now What? Who’s Next?
Busy Two Weeks
Sorry that I didn’t have a post last week. Work travel again and was just tuckered out. A lot has gone on in the kitchen though over the past two weeks. I’ve made my youngest’s graduation cake (and peanut butter cookies and brownie bites) for the Open House. They wanted pink icing and gave the… Continue reading Busy Two Weeks
Traveling with Coworkers
I’m on work travel as travel is being allowed again at work. It, as always, must be pre-approved and necessary, but we can get out with those we serve again. It feels nice, and has been very productive to do so. Although one learns a lot of what the field needs in these travels and… Continue reading Traveling with Coworkers
Getting Harder to Stay Good
I’m not sure how many of you commute everyday to work in your own car. I have to go into the office at least three days a week. When I go in, I leave around 6:00AM, then come home anytime after 3:30PM. Regardless of the time, there is traffic of some sort. Driving back and… Continue reading Getting Harder to Stay Good
Big Work Project
No post today. Big work project took up my evening. Thankfully it should be finished and submitted on Friday.
In Prime Time, Finally!
The January 6th Commission finally is holding public hearings. Or at least that is what they are calling it. I would not agree with that sentiment as yet. I’m wondering if it will be too little too late. On Thursday, we were told we would see never before seen footage. This was a true statement,… Continue reading In Prime Time, Finally!
January 6th Committee Hearings
No post tonight. Democracy is more important than baking. Watching the hearings and hope you are as well. Back next week.
Always a Surprise
For my vegetable gardens, I planned those out to the square foot. I developed a calendar this year to show exactly when the seeds needed to be started. When they needed to start being hardened outside. When to direct plant seeds. Even when I can most likely start the second round of cold crops this… Continue reading Always a Surprise
