Even though I didn't dress up this year, there was still plenty of Halloween action that DIDN'T involve taking woven witch baskets BACK from grown women. This year, we went to the annual Achter soup / pumpkin carving party. The only thing that could have made it more fun was if we put our soup … Continue reading Delicious Eyeballs!

Millcreek Canyon: Gorgeous Fall Hiking
Remember how autumn is stunning? I love all of the colors, especially when you take a short drive up any of the smattering of canyons just up the street from our home. They look like oil paintings with all of the changing leaves. Nathan and I went for a hike yesterday evening up Millcreek Canyon. … Continue reading Millcreek Canyon: Gorgeous Fall Hiking
A Few Blessings I Thought Of Today
So the boss’s boss started out the day with a frustrating mandate about our work schedules. It definitely left a bit of a grey cloud over people here at work. But, hey, we’re still here at work, getting paid to slave away at developing whatever software our company needs. BECAUSE of the grey feeling around … Continue reading A Few Blessings I Thought Of Today
GRE Vocabulary Words: Do You Know These 6?
Somebody I know (and love) will be taking the GRE in only so many weeks. You’re totally jealous aren’t you? I mean, who wouldn’t want to pay that kind of money to take a test that takes hours and determines the future of your schooling? I wish I could do it AGAIN. In honor of … Continue reading GRE Vocabulary Words: Do You Know These 6?
The AMAZING Snake Woman!
The Utah State Fair: what a beautiful mix of fried goodness, stinky barns full of animals, rodeo clowns that won some sort of title in 1995, random music acts, and the world’s most amazing SOMETHING. We totally paid for one of those somethings the other night. And it was worth it. Absolutely. We went on … Continue reading The AMAZING Snake Woman!
I may not get an entire summer vacation like Mr. Nathan does, but my company did pay me to take a good eight days of vacation. Yeah, that’s right. Eight. Whole. Days. I can’t believe they stayed in business without me for so long. They managed. As previously mentioned, Nathan survived and I enjoyed the … Continue reading Ah, Vacation!
Just Over a Year Now
Nathan and I just celebrated our one-year anniversary since our first date. To be honest, I didn’t even think about its passing until today, five days later. It’s similar to the five-day span it took me to call him back to set up that blind date. And this time, I was distracted by soccer, just … Continue reading Just Over a Year Now
Larrie’s Insulated Life
One of the books I’m reading is a memoire by a food critic: Tender at the Bone. Ruth Reichl is an interesting writer, tells her personal stories well AND those stories are interesting. Well I read one of the shorter chapters for a work break today. Reichl introduced a black roommate she had during the … Continue reading Larrie’s Insulated Life
Today Is A Good Day
I wrote a nice little blog entry about the movie that Nathan and I went to last night—X-Men: First Class. I made a list of how it portrays women and blacks, and then noted that it was a decent action-adventure movie despite that. Then I decided not to post it. It was too much of … Continue reading Today Is A Good Day
Grow Little Tomato Plants, Grow!
I finally planted the two little tomato plants on the porch. And I’m still not sure that it will be warm enough at nights. Still… I’ve got my fingers crossed that they’ll survive, get some flowers, and then bees will come from somewhere and we’ll have some fresh tomatoes by the end of summer. It’s … Continue reading Grow Little Tomato Plants, Grow!
