Some time back, I had a problem on my blogs with spammers. My spouse and I
made some changes, which solved the problem. A little too well,
actually. It seems no one can comment at the moment.

I’m aware of
the problem, but my guess is that it’s going to take quite a bit of
time, effort, and research to fix it. That wont happen till summer vacation.

I really love to hear from those who read my blog.
Frankly, it just makes me feel good to know others are reading my words
and responding to them. So, please be patient till I can get this issue fixed. 


The Band

A knot of white metal,
that sparks and flashes.

A knot tied fast one night
over wasted drinks and dripped dip.

A knot that completed two lives,
no longer needing others.

A knot becoming only
tighter with the tugs of trials.

A knot that even death
could not untie.

A knot forming a fierce circle,
that created my world.

And a bit of fun:

Grocery Shopping Blues

Another week slides by.
Time to fill that fridge again.

Milk’s drained low.
The bread’s but crust.

Ham’s only bone.
good for beans alone.

Saturday is for pushin that cart
up and down those aisles.

Smile at the box boy;
hope he wont crack the eggs.

Tote those bags and boxes.
Only two more stores to go.

Creative Cooking, part 2

I love the blog, Alimental. Hannah has this way of photographing simple, healthy food to make it look absolutely scrumptious. Today, I’m following her lead. I’m finding the trick is to take time to get the photograph before the meal is devoured. 🙂

Lunch: tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, multicolored peppers, avocado for some good fats sesame-honey almonds for protein, and strawberries for dessert. The only dressing was a sprinkle of sea salt.

healthy lunch
Dinner: a stir fry of stew meat and every vegetable I could find

Both were completely delicious!
