You will NOT believe this!

February 25th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Narfo just called. I KNOW!  I couldn’t believe it either.  You won’t believe what he said! N- Hello Lisa?  This is Narfo.  From the government tech support.  Do you remember me? L- Yes!  Hi Narfo! N- I wondered if you had any luck getting your access manager to activate. L- Nope.  Still a blue triangle […]

An actual conversation

February 23rd, 2011 · 4 Comments · Life on the farm

I’m still not quite feeling totally normal but the good news is that I finished my monthly workload a week early so I have the days free until March 1 when my March workload will drop.  Which leads me to this interesting conversation I had this morning with a tech guy in our headquarters. Please […]

Tag, you’re it

February 19th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Family, Kids

Kenny got the fever Wednesday. I got the fever Thursday. Darren got it Friday. Ed came home Friday evening with it. Vincent is hiding in the closet and won’t come out. Can’t say I blame him. This totally bites the big one. I have no choice but to work today and while I’m out I […]

We’ve got a crisis

February 16th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Cooking, Family

This is my secret weapon. This is the secret to my great cooking and even when I tell my kids that they’re “tasting the love I added”, well 9 times out of 10 it’s really this. And that’s where the crisis comes in. I’m almost out of bacon grease. I usually cook up three pounds […]

Family dinner

February 15th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Family, Life on the farm

Life on the farm is a wonderful experience but during the cold wintery months, it can go all Shining on you in a snap.  No one wants to get so isolated that you go down the path of Jack Nicholson’s character in that movie so it’s important to socialize in order to avoid that whole […]

Everyday rice

February 14th, 2011 · No Comments · Cooking, Family, Recipes

Every weekend I make a batch of Everyday Rice to keep in the fridge for the week.  I just put an amount in a container, add a teaspoon or so of chicken broth, and microwave whenever I need it.  This makes a fantastic side side or a filler in breakfast burritos – even my picky […]

Pressure cooking beans

February 13th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Cooking, Family, Recipes

Saturday’s family dinner came on fast and after a long workday Friday, I simply ran out of time. So what is one to do when one has committed to bringing homemade beans to a family dinner and it’s 7:30 at night? One grabs the pressure cooker! If you don’t have a pressure cooker, get one. […]

No hay reglas

February 11th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Cooking, Family, Recipes

There are no rules. This is the direction my wonderful stepmom has put me during my quest to learn how to create a few of the wonderful mexican dishes she makes. She also sent me home with a couple of fantastic cookbooks but, truthfully, I’ve learned more from just writing down what she says and […]

Waves of snow

February 11th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Life on the farm, Uncategorized

We were recently treated to two solid days of snow falling and temps well below zero.  It wasn’t fun. But it was pretty! We’d been snowbound for a couple of days, including Ed, because of the 2′ of snow on the driveway. We were all snug in the warm house but when I told Ed […]

Still alive and kicking

February 11th, 2011 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Once again, my life took a turn and, while exciting and financially rewarding, it left little time for blogging.  I’ve missed it so much and I’m determined to get back to it.  Blogging is a great outlet for me and probably helps keep me sane.  With spring and summer coming up, there’s just too much […]
