January 29, 2015


I'm so glad that last night I went out to choir, where we sang this song. Suzie, you would have loved it. I'm really trying to make this a part of my regular routine, getting out to sing. It's a real treat every time.


I finished Black Beauty! YAY! I think I'm more excited about finishing it because it's the first of the Book to Film Challenge books than about the book itself, when I only liked but didn't love. So funny. Now I have to think of what to say and/or how to review it in a book to film context. FUN!!!!


I finally found a smoked ham hock and today I put it to good use in this GIANT pot of Best Bean Soup that is in the Latvian Cooking Cookbook. I want to post in on my blog on Friday for Mom's birthday.

Oh I LOVE that song Jamie! I'm so glad you go to choir and I'm totally going too when I come to visit.

Shannon, way to go! One book down… :) Looking forward to how you frame the book to film coverage.

I'm so glad you made it out to choir Jamie, what a great song choice and getting so sing is so wonderful.

I'm so curious to hear about the soup Suzie, it looks amazing! I totally thought you would have done the kidney bean one....oh...but you don't like kidney beans. Now I get it. Doh!

I'm hoping to do my vlog on Black Beauty on the weekend! One thing about having a new project is that it means working in more time to do it, and to share it too!

I think the kidney bean one has cabbage in it, doesn't? Reg can't stand the smell. I also don't think I have that recipe.

Oh it's true. A new project, a new pace! Or new schedule. Or, whatever works.
