42 and the Meaning of Life

For anyone was hasn’t read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams this post might not make a whole lot of sense. You should read it anyway. This week, I am turning 42 years old. It’s both totally unbelievable and totally believable at the same time. I don’t feel like it’s been … read more

Kitchen Tips

Kitchen Tips

Here’s a kitchen tip for you this Friday morning. When I buy or harvest fresh herbs, I don’t throw them in the fridge, instead I place them in water and keep them on the window sill. There they will stay crisp and fresh for up to week, instead of wilting and browning in the fridge. … read more

Leaving the nest

Leaving the nest

Over the weekend my daughter graduated from college and moved out of the house–all on the same day! To say that this weekend was stressful is a major understatement. There was the graduation ceremony, the party and then the packing up and moving out. I’m wiped, both physically and emotionally. Needless to say, I am … read more

I guess I’ve been loved this week, because I’ve been given flowers on three different occasions. I guess that means I’ve got some good good karma. I’ll take it!

Céad Míle Fáilte: or a hundred thousand welcomes

On Saturday, I attended the 53rd Annual Scottish Games.  It was a first for me.  It’s a competition and entertainment festival dedicated to promoting Scottish heritage. There’s bagpiping, drumming, Highland dancers, modern Celtic bands, proper sweets, traditional demonstrations of weaving and sheep herding, Haggis,  feats of strength and more. I have to say that the … read more
