I realized yesterday that it has been a year since we got our big boy Lolo. After losing my precious baby Diego, Taz our other kitty was really depressed. She had been crying, she stopped eating, and the life seemed drained from her. I decided to adopt a friend for her. I found a potential buddy for her on the Humane Society website. He was a cute little thing, all black and named Raven. I thought it was a sign…

I first heard about Textbroker from moneysavingmom.com. I had been looking everywhere for legitimate ways to make money from home and couldn’t find anything that seemed genuine. I wrote a few articles, then got too busy with school so I stopped. A few days ago, I received an email from Textbroker informing past and present authors that Textbroker received an order for 10,000 articles and they are looking for people to complete the jobs. Textbroker.com is the real deal. They…

Last year, my precious Diego passed away. I was devastated and so was 10 year old Taz, (or Tazzie/Tazzie Wazzie) as we call her. She cried, looked for Diego, and refused to eat for several days. The night before Thanksgiving, I decided to adopt a friend for her. Enter Lolo… (I’ll tell his story in another post). One day he was in my lap in all his kitten cuteness. I said “Oh Lolo, you’re so cute and you’ve got so…

I love the fall! When the kids were little, it meant field trips to the petting farm and a Saturday excursion to the county fair. My daughter came home from school to go with me and my husband to the Charles County Fair. I missed the last few years of the fair because the kids started going with their friends. I have great memories of going to the fair with the kids, and I really missed seeing my favorite local…

As I drank my Friday evening glass of wine and commented on my first time trying the brand, my husband said “why don’t you review wines on your blog”? I’m in NO WAY a professional wine connoisseur, or whatever they’re called, but I know what I like. I’ve decided to rate wines on the characteristics that are important to me. I’ll rate each category with a rating of 1-5 with 1 being below average or pretty disgusting, and 5 being…

I went to the farmers market yesterday afternoon. It was beautiful outside, 70 degrees and sunny, but I was cold. I felt a tiny bit odd all wrapped up while everyone else was in t-shirts and shorts, but this is me… always chilly. If I’m hot, it’s HOT. When I got home, I made myself a cup of ginger tea. I drink this tea when I’m cold because the ginger, cinnamon, and turmeric are warming herbs and spices. This tea…
