Completely incomplete wishlist for my family. It feels weird to be so selfish. The items listed are in no particular order in terms of wants or needs.
Speaking only for myself, what I’m into right now is cleaning up my house, which involves a lot of repairs and replacements. Plus things like blinds, curtains, bookcases, light fixtures, shelving, etc. I’m also trying to give gardening and landscaping a go. All of this on a budget of $50/month. Despite the number of Dungeons & Dragons items on here, I consider them frivolous and not a high priority (except Curse of Strahd!), unlike home improvement stuff. Items that have been crossed out have already been purchased by me or someone else.
Feel free to go totally off-book here. Beggars can’t be choosers! I have a strong preference for you to shop small and/or shop local. Big businesses will survive COVID-19; small businesses might not.

We’re a gaming family. We like all types of games, but party games are my favorites. You can see a list of games I own on BoardGameGeek. Here are ones I’d like to add to our collection, even though narrowing it down to my top favorites is like choosing a favorite cat.

The theme of not making last week’s recipes continues! My big challenge is that I go to the gym in the evenings. There’s not really much time between getting home and whenever the class starts, and it’s so late when... Continue reading →
Part of my menu plan was Broccoli Rabe, Garlic and Golden Raisins as found in the Cooking Light magazine back when I had a subscription. It’s only six ingredients and pulls together in less than 30 minutes. Yay! However, when... Continue reading →
My second Menu Plan Monday and already there’s a pattern! The pattern of meals from the previous week not being made and being pushed onto this week’s menu! Huzzah! MONDAY: White Bean and Escarole Soup TUESDAY: Lime Fish Tacos WEDNESDAY:... Continue reading →
According to my menu plan for this week, Monday’s meal was Turkey with Ginger and Green Onion Salt Dip. I adapted it from Cooking Light’s Chicken with Ginger and Green Onion Salt Dip recipe so it works with my Warrior Genotype*... Continue reading →
I love menu planning! I love going through my recipe list and finding new things to try each week. Now I am trying to learn how to eat within my Warrior genotype diet, which is an offshoot of the blood... Continue reading →
I’ve seen a couple of other blogs posting monthly goals. This sounds like a good idea and something I should probably do. I could write more to fill up space, but I don’t want to. Done is better than perfect,... Continue reading →
Today is the 1st day of 2015. Many people are making resolutions, but I’m not one of them. Coincidentally, however, I just realized that in 371 days I am taking the Bear to Disney World to celebrate his Magic Birthday!... Continue reading →
