Let’s Talk Tofu

160

Tofu is on my mind today because it’s Friday.  Friday is date night, but this Friday also apparently has a lot of hot basketball action on the TV.  So my husband cleverly suggested bringing home Chinese-food take-out tonight instead of going out to our usual favorite Friday-night steakhouse. I love Chinese take-out, not to mention [...]

The Running Sewer *or* The Sewing Runner

025

When I’m not running I’m usually sewing (or maybe reading, napping, or housewifing, but those are topics for another day).  Over the last two years I’ve learned a lot about sewing and have improved my skills considerably.

Extreme Cheapskate?

I finally got around to watching the first episode of the TLC show Extreme Cheapskate. I recorded it back in February, and my husband wasn’t home on Saturday night, so I thought I’d watch (he would NOT like this show!).  Apparently, this show is now going to be a regular series.  I for one can’t [...]

Jake Jacked My Wich!

Steve and I usually like to bowl about ten games on a Sunday morning.  Yeah, it’s no big deal. He always tells me that if I get a Turkey, he will buy me a turkey sandwich for lunch.  A Turkey is three strikes in a row in bowling lingo.  I know this because one time [...]

It’s Here!!!! It’s Here!!!!

027

Yesterday I was kvetching because I hadn’t yet received the brochure for the Beyond Band of Brothers Tour.  Then I went out to the mailbox and there it was. Wow!  Whoever put this puppy together deserves a LOT of money.  Because it made me want to call up right then and there and reserve two [...]

Currahee!!!

061

  Currahee is a small mountain (or a large hill) in Toccoa, Georgia.  It is three miles up, and three miles back down.  And I want to go there and run those three miles up and three miles back down. Camp Toccoa was where the soldiers of the 101st Airborne, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Easy [...]
