I looked in the cupboards and fridge and found lots of good food to prep for my snacks and even to put in a green salad. Prepping food, cutting up vegetables and placing them in a quick snack freezer bag, or put the cut veggies in a nice pretty bowl with a little bit of [...]
I live a few miles down the road from this place and every summer they have a sign up and I did not know what they were selling. I do now. At first I thought it was a hat (like a beanie hat) or special stick or something. Well this is what they are selling: [...]
Having our son come to visit us and BBQ a smoked salmon main course meal, is the most superb reward in raising him. He can cook. He is very creative. He loves the details and spends hours prepping this meal. several hours tending to the salmon on low heat corn cobs marinated with kosher salt [...]

It has been 17 years that I considered myself a beginner horse/equestrian rider. I can honestly, being objective, state I am now a intermediate rider. This is my horse, Grace. She is a 11 year old Buckskin Mare. Maybe another post will show me riding her. It is difficult to get pictures of me riding. [...]

I have been searching for all my digital photos I have taken and stored on websites over the years. There were many on Flickr photography gallery and my other blogger.com blog. I even think Picasa has some too. I have switched laptops several times and tried to keep them all. It was too confusing with [...]
I miss this young man. This is my eldest son who passed on 15 years ago. He has his little cousin in the saddle with him. Grief always keeps my son alive. Grief always has a future. I know grief has readjusted everything . God gave us memories with visuals, like a movie reel rolling [...]
A great carb is Quinoa! It is not rice but cooks up like rice. Make sense. If you do not know what this is or maybe you do here is what it is and why it is a fantastic carb (especially for me and my high blood sugar) Quinoa is an annual seed-producing flowering plant [...]
There is the life I learn; and the life after that.
