Serenity on Vaca

We just had a great vacation. I fell in love with Southern Utah. It was such a pretty place especially when it reflected the sunset & sunrise.

I love Easy Living

I have fallen in love with the British magazine Easy Living. I also love Johnnie Boden. I do not know where these UK obsessions come from. They aren't too British but they are way cool.

A win

Yesterday, I spent Saturday in Toledo watching my daughter's team win a volleyball tournament. She had the winning spike. Yay!

Calm & Quiet

I crave these two things. I love calm & adore quiet. This is my house right now even though it is filled with four people. This calm & quiet screams that everyone is happy. I awoke this a.m. to my 13 year old BOY making crepes from scratch & my daughter prepping for her big food extravaganza tonight. (She has a cooking class and this is her big assignment. Yay!

It has been a busy week & I have 1 kid sick. I haven't been able to be quite the mom for him this week. I have however given him lots of love and "tlc" in the form of soup. I cheated and picked it up from TLC (The Lunch Cafe) in Berkley. I have loved it & so has he. I have even bought some for my other child too just to spread the love.

So we have had a few days of delicious soup & hopefully everyone will be on the mend.

Yummy Swiss Onion
Delicious Jambalaya
Soothing Mac n Cheese soup (YES!!! mac n cheese soup)
Warming Golden Potato

Yum in a bowl!

Dog park

We have a new dog park near us. I often walk our great dog in our neighborhood but it is fun to let him go in a fenced in area with other dogs every once in awhile. It is funny also to strike up conversations with other dog owners. It is just like when my kids were little talking to other parents at the park. the other dog owners want ot know his name, his breed, his age and other facts. Then we try to get our dogs to play together as we all stand by and watch. Hilarious.

Cheddar bunnies

I love cheddar bunnies! Eat this, not that said that Cheez-Its were an "eat-not" but I loved them. What did I replace them with? I replaced them with cheddar bunnies. Yum! Try them.

Only Tuesday...

I think about how as a teacher I work through the week. Oh it is Monday, here we go again. Oh it is only Tuesday. What a long week. How about Wednesday? Just get through the day. Why it is Thursday and we are almost there. Whew a Friday, a treat for all working stiffs. The comes Saturday which equals relaxation or errands? Sunday can be anything from hard to harder to where did the weekend go?

Today is a Tuesday. It is the first Tuesday without yucky weather for the first time in a long time. It has been long but no craziness happened. I even laughed a few times. Plus it is my husband's birthday. Happy day Mike!!! Enjoy your day. I will too.
