An Afternoon in the Kitchen

The trip to my mom’s was full of emotion. I’ll write about it soon. Today is about my afternoon in the kitchen. Don’t know why, but I felt the need to bake and cook. After a quick trip to the grocery store to get a couple of ingredients I needed (a bonus was they finally… Continue reading An Afternoon in the Kitchen

We Have Great Neighbors!

We have been twice blessed with great neighbors! In Albuquerque, we got to know our neighbors, helped them when we could, and heavens knows how much they helped us with the kids, and in not asking too many questions during some rough times. We all made sure to keep any eye on one another’s places… Continue reading We Have Great Neighbors!

First Gluten-Free Baked Good

One of the ways I’m trying to stay connected with friends and neighbors is through baking (duh!, right?). If they have said they liked something I’ve made in the past or if stated something was their favorite, that is what I’ve tried to make for them. Some of the items have been no-bake cookies, banana… Continue reading First Gluten-Free Baked Good

Nationally, We are Leaderless. Why Aren’t Governors Uniting?

Everyday we hear of governors going on TV and stating all the things the Federal government isn’t doing.

I am a Worrier

If it is true one’s worries are what turns one’s hair gray, you’d see I worry, a lot. I think it is both hereditary and because I’m an educator (teachers never stop thinking about their students, even 20 years after they had them in class). My current worries, which are mainly due, but not entirely,… Continue reading I am a Worrier

20,000 and Counting

It seems just yesterday we were watching China locking down Wuhan Province, then the whole of Italy shuttering its doors. Now we are watching Coronavirus unfold in our own U.S. of A. while wondering how it could happen here on such a large scale. I’ve already talked about that topic in this space, and won’t… Continue reading 20,000 and Counting

For the First Time, I’m Afraid of a Virus II

A couple of days ago I wrote Part I of this post. Boy what a couple of days will do in a pandemic! A couple of days ago, we had fewer than 1,000 cases nationwide. A few days ago, we had fewer than 50 deaths nationwide. A few days ago, we had fewer than 10… Continue reading For the First Time, I’m Afraid of a Virus II
