I attempted to put thoughts down on this blog.  It has been 7 months in fact.  I haven't had a cigarette in  7 months.  I do not even think about smoking anymore.  I no longer live in GA.  My house sold and I am back in my beloved Pacific Northwest.  More exact I now live in my dream home on… MORE

I haven't been coming to AR for very long.  I have been delighted and surprised at all the nice folks that are here.  So very rare to find a place online that seems "troll free" (almost).  I have become very over whelmed lately.  THe house not selling, missing my… MORE

A couple of weeks ago I posted my blog about quitting smoking.  I asked for good thoughts and good vibes to be sent my way.  I had no idea what the response would be.  Needless to say, I am "almost" speechless.  My heart is so full at the moment that I am totally overwhelmed. MORE

I titled this blog total self-indulgence because that is how I feel about doing this.  I will be writing about myself and something I am up against right now.  Hopefully if I put my thoughts down in words it will help me. Today, I picked up my prescription for Chantix. (a quit… MORE

I just spent the last two hours reading the blog of gderr and all the responses to his blogs.  I do not know how I missed his blog before as I thought I had read most of the blogs here.  Most of them are inspiring, funny, sad, and almost every other emotion you can imagine. However,… MORE

How many of us have done this??  We are quick to judge and even quicker sometimes to be unkind in that judgement.  I know I have done it and it isn't something I am proud of.   This brings me to the last family member to be written about.  My darling daughter… MORE

About a year ago, we had to put our beloved Pomeraian Haley to sleep.  She had only been with us for eight years, and in those eight years she had numerous health issues.  She went into kidney failure at about 4 yrs old and we were told she might not live out that month.  Well… MORE

Thirty three years ago I was a very young woman who had just escaped from an abusive marriage.  I worked for an internation shipping company, as the secretary to the Traffic Manager.  One of the men that worked for him was a guy who I thought was a total jerk.  He was going bald… MORE

About Me
I have finally returned to my beloved Pacific Northwest. We have bought our dream retirement home on a beautiful island in the middle of Puget Sound. Life is great with the man I married 30 years ago and enjoy being closer to my two beautiful daughters, Suzann 29 and Maggie 24
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything and everything except seafood. When I need a quick "happy fix" I bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making buckeyes until your hands go numb at the holidays. Making pies on birthday's instead of cakes.
My cooking triumphs
Making a perfectly delicious Bruelle Rouge Sauce that is to die for.
My cooking tragedies
A beautiful butter pound cake in a rose shaped bundt pan.. when I went to turn it out it broke into several pieces. The same day, I destroyed a balsamic reduction. Hubby took me out to dinner.
