Derek is at school. Coffee is brewed. I will now sit outside and drink it in the sun for awhile. Then to work, packing up orders, then bikram yoga in a couple hours. But right now…. sun and coffee.

Need to make an online journal entry of substance. I need to make the time to do it. How did my days get so busy, so full, so hectic? Web stuff, straw stuff, preschool stuff, little boy stuff, house stuff, preschool auction stuff, health stuff, DLJ stuff. Well, I must get back to the STUFF. […]

Oh, fudge!

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

I tried making my grandmother’s fudge recipe today for the first time ever. I think I went too far past soft ball stage, so I tried again with the batch, and it improved slightly in consistency, but is still grainy. Still, a good first try. Derek will like it no matter what. Next time, a […]

A pleasant Halloween

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

Today I went to an Open House at my friend and massage therapist’s new office. It is SO wonderful. I wish it had been where I was going when I was seeing her regularly a couple years ago. Gorgeous, soothing rooms, wonderful waiting area and couches back in the back of the business that are […]

Busy Friday

Friday, September 18th, 2009

My stomach hurts. I need to nap. So this is shorter than I wanted. I got my first set of needles today for knitting, that are my own. I am going to try to make Derek a simple scarf for my first project. But I have to remember how to cast on, I may try […]

Brilliant Day

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

Today was, and still will be, I hope, wonderful. I spent 2+ hours at a local sauna/spa relaxing, laying around nekkid, sitting in the wet sauna, sweating out toxins, taking showers and splashing with cold water infused with mugwort. It was terrific. Then I went to Powell’s and flipped through a magazine or two before […]

Woot, two in a day!

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Are you lucky, huh? I am unwinding from the day, Derek is asleep. While I was feeding him lunch the doorbell rang, and it was the postman holding my envelope with Holistic Moms flyers…with no stamps on it! Der! He didn’t even tell me what was wrong, I saw it immediately and scuttled off to […]

I realize….

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

I never told you about the birth. Longer later, quick now: Hopes: natural birth, medication free, intervention free. Reality: 14-16 hours natural labor, unmedicated.  At 16 hours I can no longer help, I have the shakes and midwife discovers Derek is slightly turned the wrong way. I surrender to the epidural. Fever arrives, I go […]

Off duty

Saturday, September 15th, 2007

Changed the look of the blog for Fall. DLJ is downstairs with Derek. My Mom left today to go back to Arizona, it’s amazing how the time has gone. I remember the day they arrived in Oregon, and thinking, when they go home, I will have a baby! And here I am on the other […]
