The ice cream is calling my name

Saturday, November 28, 2009      6 comments

We have the last of the ice cream from T'day. I made pie, bought several pints of Ben & Jerry's ice cream. Our friends didn't want to keep the leftovers, the woman doesn't like ice cream and the man had heart surgery last spring. So we took t... Read more

What a wonderful day!!!!

Friday, November 27, 2009      2 comments

Okay, so maybe it didn't start out wonderful - DH forgot that school is always closed the day after Thanksgiving, and he *helpfully* woke me at 5:30 AM - I managed to get another hour of sleep. Got my banana bread and nonfat tea lattes at the c... Read more

Eat smart - eat only what you love

Thursday, November 26, 2009      4 comments

Thanksgiving dinner is a good example - I personally do not like mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams, green bean casserole, gravy. I do love turkey, cranberry stuff, stuffing, and pie. I like (not love) steamed vegs. And I really like white... Read more

Driving off into the sunrise

Wednesday, November 25, 2009      5 comments

I like this time of year - I drive to work into the sunrise, heading east, watching the sun break through the clouds that are all pink and gold around the edge, sky lavender and grey, turning blue and clouds white as I squint with the sun in my ... Read more

The holiday season

Tuesday, November 24, 2009      5 comments

For DH, the season is all about food. (His family wasn't big on celebrating, and his mother wasn't big on holiday decorations.) He wants another chocolate decadence for his birthday (mid-December). And he wants a Chanukah party - for me, that... Read more

At the movies

Monday, November 23, 2009      2 comments

DH and I went to see "2012" - fun movie if you like disaster movies - lots of action, lots of science (not all of it exactly accurate), lots of characters, John Cusack but not as quirky as usual. People to cheer for, people who are so self-cent... Read more

USVI Tsunami Warning System

Sunday, November 22, 2009      3 comments

DH and I have gotten to know a retired professor, who is heading up the USVI tsunami warning sign program. As the daughter of a coastal geologist, I've always been fascinated by tsunamis, have known the warning signs, and also wondered why we d... Read more

Confession

Saturday, November 21, 2009      3 comments

I take photos of food when I travel. My food, food in stores, food in markets. Pretty food. Especially decorative desserts. I take photos of food. Below is just a SMALL sampling of my food photos. Gelato in Italy Read more

This morning was one of those model teaching days

Friday, November 20, 2009      4 comments

My first two classes are a joy most of the time - my Advanced Art class is, of course, full of students who are artistically talented and who love the subject. They are also from the accelerated learner team (we call it pre-advanced placement) ... Read more

National Education Week

Thursday, November 19, 2009      4 comments

Did you know that this is National Education Week? Why is this so under-advertised? Why isn't this a big deal, with national events, bonuses, special assemblies, gift bags for teachers from local businesses, donations to schools? Why is t... Read more

Today, the focus is on the upper back/neck

Wednesday, November 18, 2009      2 comments

I haven't seen the chiropractor in a week - this is the longest I've gone without an adjustment since the accident. I'm really feeling it - no matter how I position my head, I can't get comfortable, my neck and upper back ache. I've iced every... Read more

Comfort food

Tuesday, November 17, 2009      4 comments

Yesterday was one of those horrible days we get sometimes, when it's cold (for us) and wet and rainy and windy - when we wear long sleeves and huddle under quilts and shut all the windows. We had flash flood warnings (meaning don't just watch, ... Read more

Romance vs. practicality

Sunday, November 15, 2009      5 comments

Okay, so we cancelled the reservation in St. John and went to my fave little restaurant here on St. Thomas ( www.roomwithaviewvi.com/ ) - we got a little dressed up (I wore the black ruffle-bottom pants, they have string on each ... Read more

Saturday, November 14, 2009      4 comments

*With apologies to Herman Wouk, who wrote the book "Rain Don't Stop de Carnival" - which is also a Carnival song title. Tomorrow is our 6th wedding anniversary. I'm making our wedding cake - a rich dark chocolate decadence - this is alw... Read more
