Happy 2010!

Whether you say “twenty ten”, “two thousand and ten”, “two thousand ten”, “two oh ten” or “two oh one oh”, I want to wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year. May you all prosper and be in good health! If you’re into eating cooked food, have some collard greens and black-eyed […]

The Raw Vegan: Part CIII, Rumors

We engaged in small talk for a few minutes. How has your week been? Has school been going okay? What about work? Yeah, it’s pretty much the same at the hospital. What about the supermarket? You think you’re getting carpal tunnel from the scanning?? Are you and your suite-mate getting along okay? Yada yada yada. […]

My Week: Christmas!

Sunday After I did my post last night, I backed everything up and upgraded WordPress. I wish it was as easy to upgrade the forum. So…I was up later than usual again and Twinkle let me know I wasn’t supposed to stay in bed. I ignored her for an hour or so and opened the […]

The Christmas Letter

I was going to write my own but I found this gem on the WWW. I’m posting it mostly unedited. Dear Cousin Kate, Merry X-Mas! Another year has flown by and it’s time to spread good will toward men, and women too, of course. And especially to all you little kiddies. I hope your year […]

The Raw Vegan: Part CII, Getting Serious

DD had several boyfriends over the years. None of them had been “The One” and when he or she would dump the other, a large percentage of the time I saw them stay friends. I wasn’t like that. When a boyfriend and I would have a parting of the ways, I had no further use […]

Raw Vegan Recipes: Holiday Treats

The balls are on the recipe page, too, and someday I’ll do illustrated recipes but not tonight. Holiday Date Nut Balls 1/2 lub medjool dates, remove pits (DUH!) […]

My Week: Christmas Partying

Sunday I was up too late last night. It was no big surprise that I ended up sleeping in this morning. It was 7:30 when I got up. This is the only morning in the week when I can do that with a clear conscience. My main project was replacing the inside phone line. The […]

The Raw Vegan: Part CI, Out on Her Own

Well, sort of, anyway. DD had gone from living at home to academy to college (with intervening months at home) to college in Spain to living with DS1 and family then back to college. There was never a time when she was truly her own boss. She was either under the “rule” of a family […]

My Week: Living at the North Pole

Sunday I got up earlier than I’d planned but later than I do through the week. Before too long, I had a load of laundry in the wash and had done all of my routine well before DD called. She called closer to the usual time than she has since they’ve been in the PNW. […]

The Raw Vegan: Part C, Wheels!

I’d called the dealership and made one last request. I didn’t want a stripe down the side of the car. I’d seen too many cars with a few years on them suffer from stripe fatigue. I was informed that the stripes had already been applied but since they hadn’t been on long, they could be […]
