I've spent a bit of time in the kitchen lately. Grandma Roma's sugar cookies and caramel filled chocolates. I'd forgotten how time consuming making chocolates was... I would like to keep making things at home so I don't forget what I learned in culinary school but it isn't easy. Sometimes I wake up and have a list of things I'd like to do. Then suddenly it is 10:41 pm and sometimes I haven't gotten a single thing on my list done AND usually I've added to that list.

I did make it to book club with Shirley this week. The book was The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley. I have not read a historical fiction book before and I found it interesting enough that I finished it pretty quick. Then, I read more of her work. The kindle makes it easy to do while hanging out with the little man but my kindle went wonky last Friday and I was stuck without reading for a couple days. Well, I had other actual books but those are harder to read one handed. Amazon sent me out a new kindle right away but still, it was only 3 months old. Hopefully this one lasts longer. Next book for book club, Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. I've also decided to read some of my old favorites again. HP already, The Dark is Rising Series, and now some RA Salvatore and Drizzt, Riftwar Saga by Feist... I even managed to finally get around to reading the Twilight Series.

Anywho, I've also signed on to Pinterest. What a time sink. Not sure if I will keep it up but for now it is a fun place to 'keep' ideas for food and pretty things.

I'll leave you with some fun pics of our day to day activites. Toys, changing outfits because of spit up, more toys and shoes, and then walks to Grandma Roma's.



  1. Ah, what a wonderful post! Walks to Grandma Roma's and her sugar cookies. Makes me a little homesick!

  2. Isn't is crazy how it is almost impossible to get anything done! Frankie is such a charmer. We had so much fun visiting with you guys a couple weeks ago. Hope to do it again soon!
