Jake and Haley — Our Love for the American Dragon

In honor of loving the show Jake Long: American Dragon, my youngest daughter named her two most recent Webkinz pets Jake and Haley.  When we first watched the show, I misunderstood the lyrics “people were not bragging ” as “the purple one eyed dragon”, thus our purchase of the purple Emperor’s Dragon. 🙂 Misunderstood song […]

On the Cover of a Magazine…

Ever since I was a child listening to Dr. Hook’s “The Cover of the Rolling Stone”, I’ve thought it would be super fun to have my face on the cover of a magazine.  Now with green screen technology (and the fun magazine overlays that came with it), I’m able to do just that.  Here are […]

Anatomy of a REALLY FANTASTIC Party

I’ve been spending the past few days planning an upcoming party (Super Star Trek Sunday) and doing some remodeling on my house, while still keeping up on all those normal things like laundry and dishes and cooking and sleeping and showering.  🙂  It occurred to me that my family often has a couple of parties […]

Top Ten: Movies for a Rainy Day

We’ve had a bit of rain where I live recently, and it’s made me crave a certain type of movie.  Since we’re in the midst of a fairly major remodeling project I haven’t had the chance to watch all of these, but I’m craving to (sometimes enjoying a bit of melancholy with a batch of […]

Top 10: Family Favorite Movies We’ve Seen in 2008

Due to the Popularity of my Top 10: Favorite Movies and Television Shows We’ve Seen in 2007 post, I’ve written one for 2008.  This year’s list was a lot more difficult to create than last year’s since we didn’t see as many fantastic movies this year.  However, everything on this list is excellent. Top 10 […]

Obtrusive Smells

I’ve been to a lot of places recently where I’ve had to turn around and walk out. The cause? Smells. Obtrusive smells. Smells that linger in the air long after the cause is gone. I shudder just thinking about it. It’s one thing for a bath store to smell flowery or for a coffee place […]

Joshua Tree National Park, California

My family and I recently visited Joshua Tree National Park in California. While we’d driven past the park before, driving through it was amazing. A Joshua tree is an interesting plant. To us, it looks like a cross between a palm tree and a cholla. We could see why U2 named a whole album The […]

Music, Lyrics, and Writing

As a writer, I’ve been comparing my words to those of poems and song lyrics a lot lately. My older daughter and I have been noting that poems and song lyrics are essentially one and the same… I’ve been prolific with fiction lately. When I’m alone I enjoy listening to music while I write. It […]
