Today’s theme for Back to School Book Week is “Cookbooks.” I have a lot of favorites (you know I’ve talked about my can’t-live-without bread machine cookbook before) but in terms of my most recent love? That would have to be this one: Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison. We’re not vegetarians, but I’ve been [...]continue reading "Back to School Book Week: Cookbooks"
I hope you’ll forgive me for posting twice today, but Vintage Chica Eren had a fun idea that I wanted to get in on, and it means a-post-a-day for the next five days. This book junkie just couldn’t resist. So here’s the deal – in honor of school starting up again (just over a week [...]continue reading "Back to School Book Week: Craft Books"
Good morning! Today I am happy to present the second of three reader interviews. Grab a mug and a chair, and join me for Morning Coffee with Elaine Robitaille. Too Aquarius Elaine is one of a small handful of people who has been actively commenting on my blog since those long ago LiveJournal days. Our [...]continue reading "Morning Coffee with Elaine Robitaille"
I’m feeling like some kind of addict for the last week or so – I can’t get enough of widgets and gadgets and refreshing my pages… it’s getting out of hand. So, I’m just going to show you my favorite photos for the week, point you to a few of the widgetey things you might [...]continue reading "Friday Photo Love. and gadgets."

Fresh from our annual Ocean City trip, Flickr’s “Print & Create” tab sucked me in and forced me to have an album of our adventure printed and delivered to my doorstep. I was powerless to resist, I tell you! It was [...]continue reading "Peek-a-boo!"

I recently took my coffeemaker off of the counter top and regained about a square foot of space. In my kitchen, that’s a big deal. It’s not that I’ve given up coffee – I still have my morning cup most days – it’s just that I’ve found a new way to make that cup, and [...]continue reading "Cold-Press Coffee, or, How I Reclaimed Some Precious Counter Space"
Good morning! Hope you had a restful weekend. I have always thought that one of the things that makes this blogging thing fun for me is all of the participation from those of you who come here and read, comment, or even carry on the conversation on your own blogs. It’s the community aspect that [...]continue reading "Morning Coffee with Becky Jorgensen"
So, thanks for answering my poll last week! I learned that most of what I talk about is liked somewhat equally across the board. I’m glad to know that. There was only one thing that got significantly fewer votes than the other topics, and that was my interview series. Well, maybe you’ll like it better [...]continue reading "Polls and other bloggy stuff"
Just popping in really quickly tonight. I’ve been down on Ocean Grove lately, not because it’s not a wonderful place (oh, it is!) but because I haven’t had a lot of luck with taking pictures there. I’m happy to report, there were no such problems on our most recent day trip. It was smooth sailing. [...]continue reading "Ocean Grove, redeemed"
