Cuteness Overload!

So, I’ll start with the bulldog puppies.  Even after diving into some home-made yogurt (as seen on Viola’s crusty head), they are still too darned cute.  They love exploring in the yard, climbing rocks, cruising through grass or stopping to smell (and… Read More

Mother’s Day and cute stuff!

We had dinner out with the kids tonight.  Over the years, DH has been fairly ‘privileged’ and/or isolated from dining out (I have food allergies, plus I like to cook).  We went to a nice restaurant, and he nearly choked on the… Read More

Some cookin’…
