About Me

My photo


Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scraps and Snippets ~ Vegan What? Did You Just Insult Me?

October brings pumpkins.



Falling leaves.




Delicious smells, shorter days, and slippers.

(Awkward story. I had to run to the grocery store last night and waited til the after work crowds cleared out. At one point, while a block away from my house, I noticed my feet felt weird. I was wearing spa flip-flops. Terrycloth with nubbies and no tread and in a color that would grab notice even if my frequent wipeouts on the slick floor did not.) What to do? Did you notice I said the floors are slick and my slippers have no tread? Yes. I went home and changed into proper footwear.)


And October brings a first for me. It is Vegan Month of Food. Which was started as kind of a tribute to the NaNoWriMo. (National Write a Novel in a Month - month). But it's about Vegan and writing about Vegan. 

And we know I have the capacity to do that. 

Since I've participated in NaNoWriMo twice I felt participating in Vegan MoFo is a no-brainer.


I will be focusing on Vegan, which won't change things much at all. : ). October will bring a Vegan birthday cake. An overnight cold camping trip. A visit with friends from two different states who may or may not want to learn more about Vegan food and will get lots of opportunities to taste some of our trials and errors. I have four Vegan cookbooks I need to review. And. Well, there's always the farm. Kombucha, a chance to borrow a friend's Excalibur for a week. Well. Let's just say I shouldn't run out of Vegan content in October. 

Happy October. Happy Vegan MoFo. Let the fun begin.
