Recipe Box – Homemade Chicken ‘n Dumpling Soup

One of my favorite things as a kid were trips to down to North Dakota. How exciting was it that you could leave the country, just like that? My five-year-old brain was convinced that people weren’t allowed to leave their countries for some reason. Yeah, I was *that* kid.

Scribbles – Time, Space and Relative What Now?

Yay, semi-half-arsed Doctor Who reference. I’ve been thinking of Whovian cross stitch patterns today, so my brain has the blue. Or whatever. Anyway. Time for a ramble about time and schedules and getting back on track and stuff and things.

Recipe Box – Cheap? Well it used to be…

This recipe came from my friend Lorna. Her mom used to make it – well, something similar anyway – and it sounded awesome, so we tried it. At the time, it was a cheap, tasty, kid-friendly meal that fit right into my practically non-existent grocery budget.

5 of 52 Weeks – Life With a St. Pyr Pt.1

I didn’t intend to get another dog so quickly, and I really wasn’t sure if we ‘needed’ another one, what with Bear coming out of her shell so beautifully once she wasn’t under another dog’s shadow. As things happened, with the new house came an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. This post is long, but I’ve broken it up with pictures, so even if you just want to look at something pretty, here you go…
