My friend ITFL got a new camera and is playing around with it a lot. She pointed me to You Capture which offers a weekly photo challenge.

I love my camera and decided to play along. But (you will be shocked) I am late. Maybe this week I'll be on time. Last week's topic was Reflections and here are my 2 shots:


It's my goal to get back to posting here more this week. But more importantly, how are you??

I'm feeling swell and am back on the meal planning menu bus.


Mon- Whole Wheat Teriyaki pork wraps (with lettuce, cabbage, carrots, blanched broccoli, and an Asian inspired dressing). 2 of 3 kids? LOVED these.

Tues- homemade pizza

Wed- Make your own Cobbish salad with homemade rolls (butter lettuce, carrots, eggs, avocado, diced baked ham, feta, garbanzo beans, broccoli, apples, etc.).

Thur- Corn Flake chicken, sweet potato steak fries, crudite'

Fri- Puffy Pancakes with fruit (How good do these look?)

Sat- A lightened up version of: 3 cheese baked spaghetti, broccoli

Sun- Pork and apples over rice (crock pot)with veggies

Mon- Open (leftovers?)

Tues- Teriyaki steak wraps (variation on last Monday)

Wed- Lasagna in a skillet

Thur- Homemade Pizza

Fri- Veggie and cheese oven omelets

Sat: Open

I have to admit I was feeling completely uninspired and so I bounced around some of the 436 Menu Plan Monday links up at Organizing Junkie. Yeah, 436 at last check! The I figured if I liked reading what those folks were eatin', I should post my menu here again.

So, I did.


20 years ago you were the captain of everything.

Your gregarious ways are still the same.

And your girls... could be the same.

But they aren't.

They are two portly statistics who engage fully with magical boxes.

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!

Excuse #356 I've been sick, but after 8 days of really feeling pretty bad and playing an exciting game of "stump the doctors," tonight I feel pretty ok.

Excuse #357 Is there a Brady in the house? This was taken about 15 minutes ago:

So, How's the lion that is the beginning of March treating you? Looking forward to the lamb leaving? Yeah, me, too. I'll be happy to change the clocks this weekend. It is a big step in the right direction.
