'cause I had a bad day

warning...truth in blogging... it ain't pretty but it is all pretty trivial:

The a/c is off again. And it's 85 in here at 10:37pm, but it's lovely and cool OUTside. Everything is worse when I'm hot and sweaty.

Like trying to fix the belt of the vacuum. After 1/2 an hour of trying to get it open, with what ended up being a stripped screwdriver.

Like my sewing machine making a clinking sound. And sticking. And needing fixed.

Like Liv screaming for 2 hours straight, until she lost her voice. Peeing her pants and the area rugs. Getting cut on the neighbor's swing. Drama. Like the neighbor's not even checking to see if she was okay.

Like Cathrynn asking 40 times to go back outside. Seems she didn't hear me say NOOOOOO the first 39 times.

Like looking for airfare for a gal's weekend getaway, knowing that the money is just not there.

Like being really motivated to decorate for fall. But instead, get half done w/ switching LuRay pastel china for cobalt & blue & white. And realize the groceries are still not put away. Dinner isn't made. It's 5pm. Like Frank not getting home for dinner until 8pm, not 7pm as he'd said and then mentioning how dry the chicken was. And not as tasty as last night's sesame chicken.

Like the dog's quilt not spinning even after 2 tries. And then putting down a load of CLEAN towels for a second, and it falling into the litter box.

Like listening to the husband bitch at me 'cause his favorite sleeping clothes are still in the dryer at 11pm because I obviously did nothing but sit on my arse in front of the computer and TV all day. Which is wicked wrong on a day when I did

Like the lawn stinks like d-o-g. And he was only here for 2 freaking days. I watered it all for an hour. Now it smells like a wet dog.

Like baking the Amish Friendship Bread. Again. And I didn't give 3 bags away sooooooo, I'm supposed to bake 8 loaves, and give away 12 bags of fermentation. Yeah, right. I'm trashing it. But first I'm going to eat an entire loaf of butterscotch chip bread. And ponder... Hugh Grant or Colin Firth?
Either. Beer or wine? Either...


At least I don't have pix to capture this day. Blech.


Goodie, an honest blogger who doesn't paint her life as a candy coated miracle!!!

Hope tomorrow is better for you.
LOL...sorry, that post was just so funny. Sounds like my life. Butterscotch bread. Yum! Please post that recipe.

I hope you are breathing again now. Hugh Grant or Colin Firth? Depends on which movie.

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.
