After the Ball

I wonder what she's thinking... Not many good shots from this year's dance recital. The lighting is difficult, to say the least. But, I do like this one.

EAMC Celebrate Life 5K

Stefanie and I teamed up with Cindy this morning for the EAMC Celebrate Life! 5K. My best time! (not bad since we were treating it like a training run). For Christmas John got me a Garmin Forerunner 210. That's a neat watch with a Garmin GPS that tracks distance and...

The Princess and the Artist

I think Ella (the princess) will give her Papa fits when she is 15 or 16... and Lily (the artist) will have led the way! We travelled for holidays this year. Thanksgiving was spent in Florida with David and family. The girls shared their many interests with us:...

Cajun-Style Chicken Gumbo

Great for a cool weather meal, but light enough for summer! I use dark meat chicken to keep my spouse happy, but if I wasn't feeding him I would use white meat chicken. Enjoy! [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:5]

This is required at all of our family holiday meals. I learned how to do it by watching my Nanaw make it. Well seasoned iron skillet required. Since I will be celebrating Christmas with my children this year, my mom and I are fighting over custody of the iron skillet...

Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese Icing

Carrot cake is one of my family's favorite desserts. My brother and I had a competition going for a while, but I've deferred to him for the annual Thanksgiving carrot cake. But, that doesn't keep me from making it for family celebrations at other times. My recipe is a...

Summer in Maine

Marie, Genevieve and Lily at Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Lily had a grand time using the iPad2 as her personal camera and photo editing device. I have no idea where Ella was when this picture was taken... or Michelle or Shawn. I didn't take nearly as many photos as I...

  • The little things
    Mama left us 2 weeks ago. She died about 6:45am on 24 May. That day and the ones immediately following were filled with handling the details such as talking with funeral homes (yes plural since she was buried “back home” which is almost 5 hours away), talking with the priest, contacting family, etc. One moves […]
  • Expectations
    Today is Palm Sunday. Today at mass we listen and participate in the reading of the Passion — of the final hours of Jesus of Nazareth. As Christians we know that whole story. But, what of the expectations of those who didn’t already know? What of the expectations we have of others and ourselves — […]
  • Martha, Mary and Lazarus
    Today’s Gospel reading was the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead after he had been in the tomb for four days. Four days! The reading is full of how Jesus loved Lazarus and his sisters Martha and Mary. How they were very close friends. I began to think how we all have different […]
