The Weekly Ramble

bad back bed

It was not the best of weeks in these here parts. We were supposed to have a wonderful three days off, exploring the central coast. Instead, half a day in, my back went out and I was down for the count. I’m not one to stay in bed and let people bring me bacon. Though, […]

The Weekly Ramble

san diego bay

Hold onto your hats, this is going to be a ramble…. Last weekend, hubs and I escaped our regular routine for 24 hours. My sister came to watch the kids and we headed down to the bay. The weather was beautiful and we had such a great time relaxing with one another, unplugging, and talking […]

The other half of the meals is spent refining and retesting those recipes to make sure they’re good enough to share. […]

The Week in Review

last blood test

The week flew by in a flash. Some of the highlights? I worked on my book that is due Monday. I work best under pressure. That’s what I tell myself. I won’t be early on this deadline. I’m trying to tell the overachiever in me to calm down. I’m spending the weekend rereading and refining it. […]
