Made 10-bean soup only half-following the recipe. I didn't have all the ingredients, so I improvised. I think I overdid the onion, Or maybe the garlic. Possibly both. My eyes have been watering all evening as it cooks on the stove. Sure hope thi... Read more
No one did the ironing
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      3 comments

Ironing is probably my least favorite chore; well at least in my 10 least favorites. I typically avoid buying clothes that have to be ironed, but there's not much I can do about pants. Other than jeans, they pretty much all have to be ironed. So... Read more

My D1 college athlete daughter taught me some nifty soccer tricks. Yeah, we had some laughs, and I wasn't exactly graceful, but had a blast learning and having her teach me a thing or two. Plus, I got in a workout without even thinking about it... Read more
