Used Valentine’s Day to scary away sloguary

By official proclamation, January and February have henceforth been renamed 1st and 2nd Sloguary. Please adjust your calendars accordingly.

This year I’m going to exercise five days a week, eat broccoli instead of bacon, add a spoonful of bran to everything bran-able, go on a cleanse, get my vitamins from food instead of bottles, try a new vegetable every week and lose the pounds that keep finding me.

Calamari Cure

In my new Christmas slippers, I padded around the house, unknowingly leaving behind a trail of tiny circles.

It was beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. For one, a single delinquent bulb on my string of tree lights has fritzed out the entire strand. For two, I wascso far behind on my Christmas baking that only a squad of cookie cutter elves could have helped me get caught up.

It began as any holiday road trip through the mountains. Along the way, we drove into freezing rain, compact snow, slush.

When my sister arrives, my kitchen is warm with heat from an afternoon spent baking brioche.

It’s truly a squares’ world after all

“No popcorn balls. No fudge. No puffed wheat squares, Rice Krispie squares or peanut butter marshmallow bars. No apples; candied, caramelled or otherwise. Don’t even ask.”

Being lost in land of vegetarians

The Cliff Notes: In the early eighteen hundreds, a splinter sect of Baptist Americans began to practice Sabbath-keeping.

Hopping down the memory trail

There probably were signs posted everywhere. Written in bold, black and certain lettering that said , “Don’t Feed the Wildlife.”

In a doctor’s exam room, in which seven framed credentials hang askew on a wall, I sit and wait.
