Fireworks, the 4th of July and I heart STL

RFT put together a GREAT list of places to view. It’s ... Read More »

You know I am a fanatic, but last ... Read More »

Father’s Day and Game of Thrones Night

Totally unlike me, but I actually accomplished quite a bit over the weekend!   I am working on turning an old cabinet and unused corner into a coffee bar.   I have ALWAYS wanted a designated space just for coffee, but small living sometimes does not allow for extra space.    Will post pics when I am finished, I am excited ...

Ice Cream and Yoga

I find it funny that today is both National Running Day and National Chocolate Ice Cream Day.   I will let you guess which one I will be celebrating. Now yoga I am totally down for.   On my Summer 2017 bucket list is to take in one of the free yoga classes downtown.    There is one happening this evening on the ... Read More »

Summer lunch program, random pianos, and more…

I can describe my weekend in two words:   yard work.    Okay maybe two more:  dog baths.   How was yours?  🙂 Summer lunch program! Operation Food Search is launching an expanded summer program this week.  This is cool!   Have you seen any random pianos popping up? Yay for the 90’s!   This cereal will be making a comeback. The Blue Angels are ... Read More »

Thank you.

Memorial Day weekend has me feeling extra thankful.    I took in the beautiful reading of the names at Jefferson Barracks, and I am constantly amazed by all of the wonderful people in St. Louis.   Took a little drive and had a wonderful time horseback riding at Pere Marquette and even took the Winfield Ferry for the first time! Just a ... Read More »
