May Day Flowers, Burgers, and Mopey Peanuts

First and foremost, happy May Day! I used to love gathering flowers from my mom’s garden and putting them on the doorstep of a friend or neighbor we especially liked.  Today, I’m being lazy and e-gifting flowers on your e-doorstep. While you’re enjoying your e-flowers, how about a new recipe, too?  We had these “Big…

Mr. Struggles

Peanut is very happy with the amount of snow we got yesterday.  It’s ever so slightly less than the length of his legs.  Fortunately for us, we got a much larger snow storm earlier in the year, and we got to watch Peanut work his heart out to cross the yard.  He eventually figured out…

The Flu

I’ve had the flu before.  I think it was something like a day and a half of 99 degree fever, mild discomfort, and well again.  Ta da! Not this time.  I woke up on Monday with normal flu symptoms, and I decided it would be best to call in sick so I didn’t get my…

Enjoying Everyday

In my Thursday morning time off, I had a strong urge to sit.  Just sit.  Oh, sure, I also wanted to watch Downton Abbey again (so glad it’s back!).  But mostly, I wanted to be stationary. Thank goodness, I drank so much coffee that it eventually catapulted me off of the couch and towards the…
