Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. I’m continuing my fun-employment in sunny Florida at Disney and it’s been fab. No news is great news these days, so my pool time has remained pure and free from internet intrusion. Thus, I’m joining up with Biscuit and (Biscuit’s) sister to do a […]

Monday Musings

Monday Musings

Hello, Monday. Well, I’m officially fun-employed. After seven years, seven months and four days, I packed up my cube last Friday and bid a sugar-and-champagne fueled teary farewell to my job and my friends, and still thinking about it makes me want to start crying […]

Double Chocolate Babka

Double Chocolate Babka

Funny thing, time. I was sitting around this past weekend, making my to-do, to-see, to-eat lists and I realized that when I set my move date over two weeks ago it seemed like I had so much of it, I’m counting down not months, but weeks, […]

Hello, Sunday. God, the news just makes me sad. Doesn’t it make you sad? We, the US, are so much better than this.  I wish we would just act like it. This is not a space to talk about sad things. The world has enough […]

Chocolate Hazelnut Bars

Chocolate Hazelnut Bars

Do you ever have those moments when you open the cupboard and just will something good to happen?  That’s sort of what happened with these chocolate hazelnut bars.  I needed chocolate. I also needed to use up some ground hazelnuts that I sacrificed in coming […]
