  • Chocolate Mii’s

    We have been steadily playing Wii since Christmas. Micracously I’m actually doing worse at sports than when I started. It’s almost like high school P.E. all over again. However, I do like the the little character Mii’s you create for the game. We started with characters that look like ourselves and now have branched out […]

  • Bulb Project 2007/2008

    It may be raining non-stop but there are still some hopeful signs of spring. My Dutch iris, crocus, and hyacinth bulbs are starting to make their appearances. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like I’m going to have the plethora of tulips I was hoping for. I noticed a few weeks ago a large gray squirrel hanging […]

  • A Break from the Rain

    According to the weather channel we are supposed to get ten straight days of rain. Yikes! This is just after the worst storm we’ve had in fifty years. To satisfy my gardening hobby (addiction) I’m starting my seeds for the spring. I have lots of tomatoes and basil and other herbs. Even though it’s pouring […]

  • Indoor Garden The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

    It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted about the indoor garden. The Good The good news is that some of the plants are flourishing. Here is German Chamomile, despite the fact that’s indoors it’s got three buds on it. Robert Johnson Hybrid Tobacco plant- I have three of these growing and they have nice […]

  • Gardening Gifts

    My boyfriend got me some of the best gardening gifts for Christmas this year. In the collection I received two books (Bountiful Gardner and You Grow Girl), Hi-tech leather gardening gloves, Seed organizing bag, Gardening Apron, and the coolest tool case and tools. How I lived without the gloves and divet I do not know.

  • Yummy Left Overs

    There are very few foods that I look forward to eating as left overs. Sure I’ll reheat my left over Chinese food and pizza but they just do not taste the same the next day. They just lack flavors and texture. You package them into neat little tupperware containers and then they a soggy tasteless […]

  • Meyer Lemon Tree

    “On the First day of Christmas my true love gave to me,” .. A Meyer Lemon tree. I had tried my first Meyer Lemons at the farmers market a couple of months ago. It was so good and juicy. I used it with Chicken piccata and in a few martini’s. Meyer Lemons are a hybrid […]

  • Indoor Garden Adventures

    I’ve been experimenting with my first indoor garden for the past couple of months. The set up is simple we are using flourescent lights, a work bench, and containers for the plants. The goal was to grow leafy vegetables and some herbs to get us by until spring. I started in late November and I […]

  • Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year! 2007 was a pretty interesting year. I hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday. We had a few friends come over and we munched on some great snack foods and sipped champagne while playing Wii sports. I think Cher’s character in Mermaids had the right idea people should just eat hor’devours. […]
