So I made dinner. This is something I do... usually in the evenings. This seems about the right time. As I'm digging right in Andrew is waiting for his to cool a bit. He looks over at me and says, Wow, my wife is amazing; she has a fireproof mouth. That woman can take a scoop [...]

Mothra?

Mothra?

I'd never even heard the word "mothra" until Andrew uttered it last week. I thought it was the funniest thing.  So last week we had the privilege of watching our neighbor's dog, Charlie. Well… most of it was a privilege. I like to feel useful and she's a pretty easy dog to dogsit. She does, [...]

So I was munching away on a carrot as I juggled lime green markers in bed one morning. I went to grab my carrot to take another bite, but it was nowhere to be found. I thought to myself, hmmm… I guess I must have finished it. I was still hungry. Carrots aren't very filling.  [...]

It was time to get ice cream and fries again. As we pulled out onto the road I noticed the blue sky and wonderful white clouds. Off in the distance a perfect row of clouds caught my eye. I pointed them out to Andrew. Then as I looked out my passenger side window I said, [...]

Na-cho Chips!

Na-cho Chips!

This one has been in my drafts too long. It's almost stale. I haven't eaten a nacho chip since! I just about didn't post this today. Then I saw Andrew eating nacho chips. Knowing full well that I haven’t bought any since I wrote this post, I said to him, "Hey where did you get [...]

Hot Stuff

Hot Stuff

I considered sparing you this last bit of romance, but then I thought, Hey, why not ?When you're hot you're hot. Well... the tea is always hot anyways. Me: Would you like some tea? Andrew:  Yes. My cup is over here. Me: Oh, where's the lid?  Andrew:  I don't know. It didn't have one. That's [...]

A New Leaf

A New Leaf

As I came in from my walk today I said to Andrew, "I feel as if I'm about to turn over a new leaf. But I have to be careful to turn it over slowly." He says to me, "Uh huh, or else you'll fall off your lilly pad." That's about right. Then he added, [...]

A Yorkshire Summer

A Yorkshire Summer

Today has been a "perfect storm" kind of a day. I mean this metaphorically. I was up half the night, so I woke in a right awful mood. I was too tired to think and function, but too wired to sleep. So I started blurting out all of the things that were bothering me. I [...]
