This year will be remembered as a tough one for me. I can’t really explain it or go into detail, but weird stuff just kept happening.  When I was thinking about what I wanted to write for this post, all the negative just kept creeping up and reminding me of all the tough decisions and bad things that happened. …

5things: Cold but sweet!

Is it weird that sometimes during these very chilly days I want something cold to drink or eat?  As far as I'm concerned, ice cream and frozen treats aren't just for hot summer days.  I mean, if you really need something warm just pour hot chocolate syrup on your ice cream and voilà!

Dear Adelita: Luminarias vs. Farolitos

Craft Friday

It's over. All done.  Black Friday came and went.  I survived.  Did I shop on Black Friday?  Yes...but only to go to Clark's Pet Supply, a locally owned business, because my mom was out of cat food.  I am not one of those people who feels the need to start my holiday shopping the day after Thanksgiving…
