So many many times during our chemo days (yes, they were ours, not just mine, as Garry took on much of the weight of those days), I would look to my dear Husband, my new caretaker, and feel an overpowering love I have never felt in all our 32-years of marriage. A gentle, no-words-needed, constant presence, bearing the hardest parts with me, kind of love. It humbled me as … [Read More...]

Motion Sickness Science

If you have kiddos or grandkiddos, this post on motion sickness is for you. I have been known to get car sick.  I won't go on a cruise because I tend to be motion sensitive.  I was the kid in the center of the metal merry-go-round-o'death screaming to get off because I was going to puke.  For the reals.  I was gonna puke all over every kid riding with me and some … [Read More...]

Two Ingredient Bisquick Knock-Off Biscuits

As a true Southern gal, I love me some mile-high fluffy biscuits. Ain't nothing much better than homemade biscuits smothered in sausage and gravy. My stomach is grumbling just thinking about it. Yum. My go-to recipe is the one linked above. Sure it takes a bit of time, but oh, momma, they are worth it. Light and fluffy works of art. I could eat them every day. I don't. … [Read More...]

Photography Halps!

When I bought my baby, my fancy-pants DSLR, I renewed my love of all things photography. As one who is self-taught from back in the day (with film!)
