Random Bits

     LV whisked me away for a few days. We spent our time hiking, exploring, and enjoying each other's company.
     It was such a time of relaxing and refreshment, and I enjoyed every minute.
     I only took a little over 300 pictures. I'll share some of them later.
     I'm writing again, and loving it. I opened files I had stored away on my computer and read everything and became reinspired to get more books published.
     Stay tuned.
      The fall colors have been spectacular this year. Combine that with bright blue skies and puffy white clouds and you really couldn't ask for a more perfect fall.
      This morning that changed and we were greeted with fog, a fast drizzle, and general sogginess.
      It may have affected Steven's mood a bit when he surveyed his math assignment for the day. Division isn't as exciting as it used to be.
      First he calculated how many days are left in the school year, and then how many days until he graduates. It all became a bit overwhelming to him.
      He came up with a solution though. "Mom," he said. "We should become Amish and once I graduate we could leave again."
      I'm trying a new recipe for roasted squash for supper tonight.
      I've never used patty pan squash before, but I'm looking forward to it.


  1. How nice to have a little getaway. I think all couples should try to do that if it's at all possible to reconnect and focus on each other once again. It's easy with a family to get caught up in the day to day things.
    We've been married almost 43 years and still enjoy every day we have together.
    Steven always makes me laugh and today was no exception! Smart boy.

  2. Sounds like you had a fun trip!! And Steven's comment made my mom and I laugh. :)
    I'm so excited to hear you're writing/thinking of publishing again!

  3. I've had patty pan squash in Guatemala and I loved it. I wish we could find it here.

  4. I like patty-pan squash, especially now that I can fix it for myself. Mum always let things grow until they were ginormous and full of huge seeds. My sister *hated* those seeds, and tried everything to get rid of them, to no avail. Now I buy them when they are a reasonable size and cook them with a bit of butter and cinnamon. Good stuff!

  5. Pattypan squash are amazing, my mum used to always slice them up and fry up with a bit of garlic and butter. Amazing. She would also add in zucchini

  6. Nice you got to go away with LV for a few days, and great to hear you're writing again.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
