The Pumpkin Muffins I Almost Bought

Monday, October 12, 2015      13 comments

I couldn't believe my eyes. After taking a sample of the pumpkin muffin in the store, I picked up a package and thought they looked pretty innocent to have one for breakfast during this holiday season. Finding the nutrition label, I though... Read more

Tuesday, October 06, 2015      3 comments

Even though we will still get some hot weather at some point, this temperature break feels wonderful. I really respond to scents, but am careful about not making my lungs work too hard by making the air too perfumey. I've found lightly-s... Read more

Monday, October 05, 2015      11 comments

This will be short. Just got in and am shaking. I usually carry a heavy flashlight, but not today. In the middle of the street yelling and screaming as two huge dogs (looked like Stephen King's Cujo) came at me. My screams startled them... Read more

Since I'm a grazer all day long, I've stumbled upon something that makes me feel full while satisfying my psychological need to graze. SNOW PEAS! They are yummy. So glad I remembered to try them again. I can't believe (and yes, I'm smili... Read more
