It’s beginning to look a lot like summer around here. And my sink is filling up with the first signs.
However, the garden looks ridiculous and kind of pathetic. It’s growing like a bad trend although I have abandoned it so. And holy cow, the kale, it will not die…it’s overachieving, holding out and holding on. I’m going to pull all that out this weekend and make 80 pounds of final kale chips. Please come to my house to pick up piles of kale chips.
But the squash blossoms are blooming.
And there are like 12 kinds of peppers mixed in there between the crazy weeds. It’s a party. And I need to clean this place up. I also need to find 27 recipes that call for lots of peppers. It’s going to be a hot summer.
Amy’s has Cajeta ice cream again, so that’s happening. This summer, I’m going to learn how to make Cajeta. Oh yes I am.
The Boy Scouts voted for equality, and any vote for equality is a good vote. I’m not sure this is a sign of summer, but it’s definitely a good sign. Harry’s godfather The Padrino Ken and I talked talked about it here.
And yesterday, I dropped off a first grader.
Some things happened.
And he ran out of there a second grader.
Summer’s here, y’all.
Let’s do this.
Dallas Texas. Paper design company. Sweet Magnolia Paper. I like their style. Check out this entire and entirely cute party at 100 Layer Cake.
When I said we were off so many weeks ago, I didn’t mean we were offline. But then, perhaps I did. As I last pushed publish, Harry and I were stepping onto a plane to go visit possible sites for Mom 2.0 2014…possible and undisclosed sites. So just as I said I’d be writing more, [...]
I have a number of great shots to post about the Texas Margarita Mixer (so fun!) but first, we’ve gotta get out of here. Austin always plans its Spring Breaks to coincide with SXSW…and there are lots of good reasons for that…so we’re leaving on a jet plane. Don’t know when we’ll be back again. [...]
Are you going to be in Austin for SXSW this year? Or… just in Austin on Saturday while you’re craving margaritas? Well, have I got the thing for you… Come to The Texas Margarita Mixer Saturday, March 9th Noon to 5 p.m. at Holy Mountain RSVP HERE. I’ll be there. With these fine folks… Sponsors: [...]
What a difference a day makes. Since I posted what my kitchen table looked like on Monday, I thought I’d go ahead and show you what it transformed into on Tuesday. Which is exactly why I didn’t post yesterday. (Shoot. One day in and I’m already a day behind.) Mom 2.0 Summit content is taking [...]
Today is the only day of the year that is a command. It also happens to be my mom’s birthday. Coincidence? (Happy Birthday, Mom!) It’s also a really good directive to hear. Sort of the sane person’s ‘Keep Calm and fill in the blank’ (It makes me much more calm when no one is graphic [...]
Image source Go Mighty is on a New York Times blog today. Check it: Go Mighty or You Might Not Go At All by KJ Dell’Antonia And I say, perfect timing. Eight weeks into a year is just about the time that I start to begin to get going. Plus, I’ll be turing another year older this [...]
Hi. Remember me? I’ve been trapped under something heavy. A kitchen. We are in the middle of kitchen construction con Queso. I can’t wait to show you the final results – heck, I can’t wait to see them myself. In the meantime, I’ll be shopping. And talking a lot about the process. … after all, [...]
I’m sure you are well into the New Year by now, but I’m just getting going. Like just now getting going. Today. Harry didn’t start school until the 7th, and during those first seven days, we played a lot, made some resolutions I’ve already taken a class to fulfill one of those resolutions), then I [...]
