The morning you scrub the kitchen floor

will be the day the girls spill lemonade. It was clean for about 4 hours. Now it's beyond sticky. And I ran out to deliver the care package to the starving college kids and left the dinner dishes.

Maybe writing about it will get me motivated.
  • Sticky floor
  • Dirty dishes
  • Litter boxes
  • Laundry
Nope - not motivated. Funner stuff (said in my best Livia voice) :
  • Stepping stones for Father's Day
  • Marine Corp. scrapbook
  • work on mosaics
  • banana bread - yep, I'm my worst enemy. I bought some really nice brownish bananas. Was going to bring a loaf and a picnic lunch to the trip to Rogers today but I've got too much going against me (see prior list ;) ) & not enough money.
Now I'm starting to warm up. Goal - no fun stuff, even posting, until the chores are done.
Peeling myself away from the computer.

You be mine

I am seriously in love with this stack of vintage pretties.  My favorite is this quaint hankie!!

 Flea market find. All mine.  For - drum roll - $10!  An entire Marshall's shopping bag full. Luckily my partner in crime has eagle eyes for boxes of neglected old stuff.  Stay tuned to see what they become later!!

Omgosh Vegan Banana Cake

So. I have been MIA for almost an entire year in blog days.  I can hear the crickets. Nah, even they have left the building.  But, I am not a quitter.  Regardless of what you may have heard!  So I am back with a mission. I want to capture my recipes here. Yawn. I know. Food blog so 5 years ago.  But, it is for me. So I can have an actual record of my successful vegan offerings. I know. Vegan.  Yuck. Right?  How did that happen?  One daughter with a soul for kindness and ethical treatment of animals.  The rest of us are just vegetarians.  We are shamefully consuming butter, eggs and cheese. Not often. Just enough to gorge ourselves with our favorite pizza. And cookies. So the vegan child doesn't waste away to her birth weight, I am on a mission to redo our recipes into really good vegan offerings.  So. Warm from the oven on a brisk Autumn eve, banana cake.

It is a yummy first attempt.  I can't believe I am saying this but I will cut the sugar next time.  Crazy, huh?  I didn…

Pretty in pink...

Cotton shirts.  Love 'em. Usually can't wear 'em.  Too tight. Pull at the boobs.  Or, shrink in the first wash.  And being a plus size gal, I need some softness and movement to keep an illusion of me.  Reality in a stiff button up, not so pretty. So, an old linens table cloth, so soft. Nicely torn for texture. And an old soft lace cafe curtain.

Stella, my model, is asymmetrical so it appears wonky.
