List it Tuesday: Been There, Done That

The List it Tuesday topic at Artsyville this week is Been There, Done That. I love this topic, and had fun thinking back over the fun things I’ve done over the years. Most of the big ones related to travel, which reinforced for me where my heart is at. Click the image to see the […]

Thanksgiving Shopping List!

It’s too early for me to think about Christmas, so I’m sharing my Thanksgiving shopping list for this week’s List it Tuesday at Artsyville. I’m responsible for the cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes and stuffing this year. Lucky me, these can be prepped on Wednesday, and be ready to eat or cook on Thursday. I’m mixing […]

Sketchbook: Last Farmers Market

Today was the last weekend of the regular season at the farmers market near our apartment. It was raining so much that we got in and out as quickly as possible, and took our crepes to go. All of the vendors were so nice to thank us for coming out in the rain. The downtown […]

List it Tuesday: I am a sucker for…

01. Sellwood Soap Company. It’s not hard to be drawn to local consumption here in Portland. I started using a brand new bar of lemon soap from Sellwood Soap Company this week. Very luxurious! So soft, and it smells like summer (I’m still hanging on). I have my eye on their Working Hands Soap for […]

01. Cantaloupe. Or rockmelon, I suppose, to my one faithful reader. We bought two at the farmer’s market after trying samples. SO GOOD. My first melon this summer. I can’t wait to cut one open tonight. 02. Cooking. I made it into the kitchen for the first time this week. It was not pretty. Or […]

01. Walking. It’s oh, so nice to be doing this again. Even if it’s kind of a wonky walk. Even if I need a crutch to do it for more than a few steps. Even if I have to wear a big black ugly boot to do it. Even with all that, it’s amazing. 02. […]
