Tis the season! Cough and cold season that is…

Yep, that’s right, we’re getting sick!

I loathe being sick..I’m sure there is not a person out there who enjoys being ill…but…I am a particularly hard person to deal with when I’m sick.

Our babysitter was sick all of last week and over the weekend Peanut started to kind of act weird..she does that when she’s coming down with something. She clings to me, wants to cuddle and hang out while I cook(It’s not a terrible thing really)and just be close to me. On Sunday she asked what was for Dinner and I told her I was roasting a chicken, she asked if I could just make a pot of chicken soup and I knew right then we were in for it.

I have no problem taking care of a sick family, however, If I manage to come down with it things don’t go very smoothly! I like to be left alone when I don’t feel good…Having other sick and needy people around when I want to be left alone doesn’t work LOL

Well last night I got out those bones and made a pot of stock which promptly became a pot of home made soup! The family scarfed it down for supper and we all have it for lunch today as well. It’s good and it’s helping me to at least feel a little happier if not better.

Me thinks tonight will be an early to bed after a hot bath kind of night…We all just have to hold out until the weekend and then we can really have a rest!


Domesticity at it’s finest? Sure!

First post! It feels a little daunting LOL! Ok…here goes 🙂

I’m 40(ish) work full time, have two kids a husband and two(1 Golden Lab and 1 Tabby Cat)fur faces! I am busy ALL the time..well..that’s if I havent decided to just lay down and let a few things slide.

I won’t complain about my job because I work for really good people, in a family run company, if  I have to work it’s a good place to be. I do a nine hour day and the pay is ok but I’m not getting rich! Oh what it would be like to be independantly wealthy!! It’s also not a creative position at all, not even the creation of word documents LOL!

At home there’s a husband and daughter tag team who love to run me ragged! I don’t mind this either, for the most part, but I do have my days where I draw a line in the sand and finger wag until they get the hint.

I live for the weekends! Saturday and Sunday are like gold to me! I get up early, make a coffee and sit in the quiet with our dog Dallas(quiet until she decides it’s fetch time anyway)and enjoy the time to myself. Usually I will take the dog out for her game of fetch and then, weather permitting, I throw on my kicks and go for a run..I never knew I was a runner until about three years ago…when I first started I thought I was going to drop dead on the path! Now, I LOVE it..It’s like meditation for me, I get out there with a play list and just clear my head and do something good for my body too. Then it’s house and family time 🙂

I’m also not a terrible gardener, I have a few garden beds with a variety of plants as well as an herb box and a ton of house plants! It’s nice to have fresh herbs in the summer for cooking 🙂

What I’m hoping for this blog is that, I can post recipes and household tips that work for me..maybe share a story or two with any one who might want to read along. To be able to get a little creative and just have a bit of fun!

I hope some of you will hang around! I’m always up for a new friend and a laugh!

Till Later…
