Favorite Scary Movies

Hello everyone surprise post! I thought it would be fun to do a quick Halloween post of my favorite scary movies. Let’s be clear growing up my family never really celebrated Halloween. We were the type to turn off all the lights and act like we’re not home; type of people. And while we were […]

Everything’s Pumpkin

Some of my favorite fall recipes… …Thus far anyway. I think as soon as October hit everything I cooked baked or others made was pumpkin infused, spiced or shaped. And I am pretty sure my sister(my official taste tester is done with fall foods) When my sister moved in with me the first of the […]

One Year Ago…

I know so dramatic right? But this time last year I was moving my year old random ramblings to this new site. It’s crazy to think it’s been that long and that my site is two and half years old. Crazy!! I just wanted to thank all of my readers and subscribers. Those who have […]

It’s Okay Being Just Okay

General Check-in

How is everybody doing? I feel like life around here has been rather regular the last couple of weeks. No big splashes, except in the lake water.

What with […]

Oh to be traveling again! Hopefully soon things will be lifted enough to allow adventures to continue. But until then here is a coffee kit I put together for my future travels. I think it’s safe to say I have become a coffee snob. I like my chosen roaster(Colectivo based here in Milwaukee) my pour […]

Buying Local

A Response to Lockdown Wisconsin has been lifted from quarantine for little over a week and let me just say it is wonderful to be “free”. The process leading to our freedom(which was hard fought) is a post in and of itself, which I won’t cover here. And no matter what your view on the […]

People of the Trees Prt.3

Chapter Five Serene and Traek had long ago left the fire ravaged woods for the thriving and living forest. Birds chirped high above them. Their colorful feathers only visible for an instant before they darted back into the leaves. Over yonder a squirrel chattered none stop to his neighbors, and somewhere else a dove cooed. […]
