WINTER IN A DOG’S EYES

Right now I can feel a pair of puppy eyes boring into my back, begging me to let him outside AGAIN. Not that I blame the little guy, it is, after all, sorta, kinda, feeling almost Spring-like today. Not that he or his brother care about how warm it is, really. What they love right […]

MADISON’S SOUPER BOWL JANUARY 27, 2018

It is that time of year when the weather tends to be blah, and maybe our attitudes are a¬†bit as well. It is also the perfect time to fill up with some warm chili or fresh soup and liven up our worn out souls. On Saturday, January 27th, Madison will be hosting it’s third annual¬†Souper […]

IT’S MY BRAIN’S FAULT

I don’t feel like writing today. I’ve been in a bit of a slump the last few months and I feel as though my brain is not functioning at full capacity. The only thing I feel like writing about is me. Me, me, me! Does anyone really want to hear me complain about all of […]

LAZY SUMMER RAIN

It’s raining right now. Summer rain. I have a love hate relationship with summer rain. I love it if I am in the mood to stay inside and read, or write the next great novel…or just think about writing the next great novel, or maybe even watch a movie. I hate it when I have […]

ITALIAN PASTA SALAD

Nothing gets me into the kitchen faster than a forecast warning of several days of humidity. I refuse to cook on those days. One of my favorite, go with anything, or stand alone, dishes is pasta salad. What I love about pasta salad is that there are no rules on how it is to be […]

I’LL GET IT DONE…EVENTUALLY

  I don’t know where my head is at today. I think it is on hiatus from reality. I have started so many projects/chores today and I have yet to complete any of them. Maybe it is because of the unusual heat we have today, or maybe I am just too overwhelmed by all that […]

ELM CITY PARTY BIKE

Last night I joined a group of friends to cruise through New Haven on the new Elm City Party Bike. When I first heard about this I was really excited to go along for the ride because I love New Haven, I love biking and I love drinking with a great group of friends! But […]

JUST GET IT DONE! OR NOT…

I haven’t been writing for a few days now; I’ve been really distracted by life. Being that it is Spring and all, there is just so many things that need to be tended to. Like the yard and the flower beds. The boat needs to be prepped before it can launch. The dog and myself […]

Kim’s Roasted Chicken

I was in no mood to cook yesterday but I needed to roast a chicken. I’ve been on a Bone Broth kick lately and I was about to run out, so I had to be an adult and get into the kitchen. My husband was thrilled, of course, because he could easily live on an […]
