Ripples In Time

Ripples In Time

dreamstimefree_2868839I’m over at the Women Unplugged site today, talking about destiny …

Back in high school, I had a crush on a guy. He was cute and funny and a year older than I was. He also had a girlfriend who went to a different school, which meant that as long as she was in the picture, he was off limits.

But I liked this guy and we became friends. Sure, there was some flirting. Mostly we hung around outside of classes and he let me store my books in his locker because my locker was way down at the other end of the school.

Channeling Jekyll and Hyde

Channeling Jekyll and Hyde

I’m over at the Women Unplugged blog today, where I’m talking about …My dad was a social butterfly. He liked to get out, visit with people, and have a good time.

My mom is more the hermit type. Content with her own company, she’d happily stay in her house and yard for weeks on end.

I inherited both those qualities from my parents in equal amounts, so I’m half social butterfly, half hermit. Jekyll and Hyde, with the two entities battling for domination.

Pop on over to the Women Unplugged blog and read the rest of Channeling Jekyll and Hyde. Then check back here on the weekend (Jan 12 & 13) for the Warm Winter Reads bloghop information.

For The Love of Reading – Repost

DadToday I’m over at the Women Unplugged blog and it’s the anniversary of my dad’s passing into the great unknown. It’s been three years since he left us, so in honor of his memory, I’m reposting one of the first blog posts I wrote.

~~~

I inherited my nose from my dad. I also inherited his calves, his easy going personality and his love of reading. He died in 2009 but my all time favourite picture of him shows him sitting on the beach in a lawn chair, a book in his hands with the sun shining down on his head.

Banana Nut Bread

Banana Nut Bread

I’m over at the Women Unplugged blog today, sharing my Banana Nut Bread recipe.

My guys love bananas. I however do not. I have a vivid memory of eating a banana as a young girl but near as I can figure, I had sunstroke and the end result wasn’t pretty – or discussion for a food post. To this day, I can’t stand the smell of bananas. Whenever any of my guys eat them, they’re not allowed near me with their banana breath.

This recipe started out as a labor of love but turned into a healthy favorite family snack.
