That’s Not Something You Think Every Day #21

Doctor appointments: I loathe them. Always have. Was particularly annoyed during cancer treatment years ago when I went 3-4 days a week to some appointment or another, major ones like heart tests and chemo infusions and discussions about whether to radiate my body. I have another appointment tomorrow morning. While I hate seeing the doctor, […]

That’s Not Something You Hear Every Day #32

My piano-student parent who introduced me to this nougat several years ago brought me some to her daughter’s lesson on January 11. I should have given it back. Or, I guess had some self-control.

Three years ago, a piano student’s parent made me this delicious candy for Christmas. I, of course, got the recipe and put it in my book so I could start a new tradition. 🎄🎄🎄 Finally, in December of 2021, I bought all the ingredients.

That’s Not Something You Do Every Day #15

It’s a good thing we walked almost 6 miles yesterday. I’ve had ice cream for dinner twice this week. I’ve also had fish and chips (baked potato) three times. What can I say? It’s almost impossible to find gluten-free fish and chips. #crazyeyes #celiacsucks #backtorealitytomorrow

That’s Not Something That Happens Every Day #7

My song, “I Am Broken” was released today. I still can’t believe it. On Facebook, so many people shared my link and spread the word. This post was hands down my favorite. Yes, yes, I’m probably biased, but I think my daughter did a great job advertising this momentous occasion.
