Last Thursday, my son’s summer baseball season ended with a great big championship game win and a story for you, my dear readers. Back when Jameson’s baseball season started, I noticed one of the other mothers sitting by herself during one of the practices. Her lawn chair was parked away from all of the other parents and she seemed … More A Baseball Named Karma
I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions. What does throwing out the old calendar and hanging up the new have anything to do with me accomplishing something in life? I have been known to start a new “diet”, workout schedule, or topic to learn on any random day of the week, or month of the year. Except this … More #500milesin2017
I am a very superstitious person. Find a penny heads up, make a wish and pocket it. Tails up, hand it off to someone else to make the wish. Right palm itching means you’re coming into money. A broom falling means company will soon be coming to visit. 11:11, make a wish. Spill salt? Better … More Don’t Forget the Black-Eyed Peas!!

I am checking out for this Memorial Day weekend for some much needed R&R with the family. Don’t worry, I will have some delicious camping recipes and I’m certain, some funny family stories to share on my return back to blogland. But first, I wanted to give a kombucha update – It failed. Five days … More Kombucha Party Foul
My little experiment has begun! Researching kombucha recipes online, I found that the suggested ratio is eight tea bags to one gallon of water, with one cup of sugar dissolved in. Of course, I can never leave well enough alone and had to tweak the recipe; in order to mask some of the vinegary taste, I prepped my kombucha last … More Let’s Get This Kombucha Started!
I am flipping ecstatic right now! Guess what showed up in the mail today? Huh?! Huh?! No guesses?! My SCOBY! What in the hell is a SCOBY, you ask? SCOBY stands for Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast, and can also be known as a “mother” or “mushroom”. Don’t be confused; this is no fungi, but a … More It Has Arrived!
