Palindrome
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      8 comments

My friend sent this to me... It is short, but really made me stop and think. A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the... Read more
Dinner and a Whine
Monday, May 17, 2010      2 comments

No movies here - sorry. Just a whine that I lost my momentum today. After four days of steady work, my body said no more and just kinda... well, blah-ed on me. It has rained most of the day. (Whine) It's gonna rain for the next several days (mo... Read more

Planted a few herbs around my tomatoes and put winter squash and gourd seeds in the ground. Put in trays for germination - five more kinds of tomatoes, ground cherries, purple Brussels and Brocco-flower. Got the Nasturtium seeds in, kinda late... Read more
Garden coolness
Saturday, May 15, 2010      4 comments

The garden is mostly in. We took and boxed a 20 x 30 plot, then separated it into two 15 x 20 sections. The first is for a regular garden, then second will house the greenhouse in a few months. In the meantime, it will give me a planning/holdi... Read more

Chili-Lime Grilled Corn on the Cob
Thursday, May 13, 2010      4 comments

Back in my catering days, we made corn on the cob for a huge group at a private home. How to do this efficiently? Peel back the husks just enough to pull off the silk and then put back into place. Line the corn up in a dishwasher. (Do NOT add d... Read more

I spent Mother's Day with my Airedale, Dylan - walking the beach, making him peanut butter and oatmeal biscuits, playing stick. I spent it with my "other" baby. ... Read more
Out of Excuses
Friday, May 07, 2010      1 comments

There have been so many things going on that it is easy to put fitness on the back burner, or at least turn it on low. I've been traveling and eating out - trying to be good - sorta! Its easy to go, I'll work this off tomorrow - and tomorrow nev... Read more
Where I want to be!
Thursday, May 06, 2010      0 comments

I received this from a friend... When you read the last sentence, you realize that surrounding yourself (myself) with things that are good for you is truly where I want to be. Don’t hang out with people who are where you don’t want to be. ... Read more
Cooking out of the Pantry
Wednesday, May 05, 2010      4 comments

As a professional Chef, I always keep a stocked pantry. I buy products I come across at the market or that I've read about and want to try. I also keep lots of flour and ingredients for my dog biscuits. In the spirit of not wanting to move more... Read more
Puffy Sausage toes
Sunday, May 02, 2010      1 comments

I have a problem with Salt. I guess you could say it's a love/hate relationship. I love it and it hates me. That's why I get puffy sausage toes when I eat too much. I hate nasty food analogies! But that is the only way to describe how they look... Read more

Humping to make it Happen
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      1 comments

A friend of mine says shes "Humping to make it happen" when she's really busy. I have always chuckled when I hear that. Today it's not that funny. I have been less active the past few days and it's starting to catch up. I realized when my ... Read more
Whiny Rough day
Monday, April 26, 2010      3 comments

Sunday was a rough day. Not necessarily a bad day - just rough. I didn't sleep well, first due to neighbors who were partying loudly way to late, then to leg cramps. I got up in a foul mood! Yikes! My SO gently suggested I go back to bed, but u... Read more
