Bucket list meme

Jill over at Universal Musings has some great answers to this quiz, here are mine. (X ) Shot a gun-  I had a man target posted over my bed when I was single and living alone. It had an absolutely fabulous grouping. You had to go through the bedroom to use the bathroom, no one ever seemed to notice it ...

Where did May go?

The Month of Thai was more like the week of Thai, I’m really having issues with this cooking for one business. I’m eating out more often than we used to, then I take leftovers home and eat them the next day. To help me through the day, I did have several girl friends over for lunch on Duke’s birthday.  Among other ...

Moving out of my comfort zone

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.” ― William W. Purkey I’m the only latina ever born without rhythm. I’ll be dancing and all of sudden get confused as to what the beat is. That doesn’t stop me from dancing, though I ...

A confession- I’ve been a bit down lately

My house looks like looters came and went. I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the least bit tidy. Too many projects going on at the same time, and a tendency to be distracted. I’ve always said that while no one in their right mind would do surgery in my kitchen, no one would think twice about ...

Uniquely Yucatan- blatant self promotion

Long ago in a Writers’ Group far far away, a sequel was born. Well, not that long ago, December 2015, but my life has been so chaotic that I just realized I never told you all about it until today. I have four stories in Uniquely Yucatan stories mostly true, spiced with artistic license.  Which makes three anthologies that you can ...

Me Made May and Me

It’s time for Me Made May, I love the idea of having an entirely Me Made wardrobe. A wardrobe that fits and is uniquely me.  The idea of posting outfits and modeling them feel narcissistic, though I understand it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s nice to see real people wearing things that they made, not just the vintage wearing ...

May and Southeast Asian Food

Duke’s birthday is in May. His absolutely favorite cuisine is  was Thai, so May got designated the Month of Thai. Eventually, it morphed into the Month of Southeast Asian Food. Now I didn’t do a whole Thai spread every day, I did make something most days. I have quite a few Thai and Vietnamese recipes on my blog. Interestingly enough, while we ...

Home again

Tuesday was a lesson in patience.  Thinking that I had the process figured out because I had done it once, I didn’t bother to go to the window when I arrived. Last time, they had told me that they would call me when it was my admitting time. At 1:35, when they had not called my name, Nora and I ...

No more lopsidedness

After I had my mastectomy, I swore that I would never ever have another surgery again. Duke loved me even if I didn’t have a right breast, my in-bra prosthesis looks natural even if it wasn’t quite as large as my other (34 DDD) natural left one. Then my left shoulder started to drop, there is a visible difference between ...
