Put A Cork In It

If you are anything like me, you enjoy sharing a decent bottle of wine, beer, or bubbly with family and friends. Or just yourself if it has been a really rough day.

If you are even more like me, you feel oh-so-guilty tossing the cork in the trash. So here is something I like to do instead.

Jot down the date, occasion, or any remembrance that went along with the imbibing. Toss it in a vase or glass vessel. 

Just to clarify: "Twilight" marks a Twilight Picnic in the Park, not the movie Twilight. I don't want any of you to get the wrong idea...


Once you're filled to the brim with corkage, head over to Pinterest for a myriad of crafty cork project ideas. I'm partial to the wreaths.

If you don't want to get out the glue gun, head down to your local Whole Foods, where they accept corks for recycling. You can also look at other participating recyclers in the Cork ReHarvest program.

With a Deafening Sound

After a resolve to start blogging again, a life change happened and within a breath, all I wanted to do is delete all "likes" of Lucy and never look back. 

But at some point this past week, after talking and crying with many a good egg, I decided not to be so rash, or at least not to make the decision quite yet. So please be patient with me as I try to do the best I can. I suppose there are still a lot of likes (or maybe even loves) to be found in this world.

Sometimes you're happy, sometimes you're sad
But the world goes 'round
Sometimes you lose every nickel you had
But the world goes 'round

Sometimes your dreams get broken in pieces
But that doesn't alter a thing
Take it from me, there's still gonna be
A summer, a winter, a fall and a spring

And sometimes a friend starts treating you bad
But the world goes 'round
And sometimes your heart breaks with a deafening sound

Somebody loses and somebody wins
And one day it's kicks, then it's kicks in the shins
But the planet spins, and the world goes 'round and 'round
But the world goes 'round
But the world goes 'round

Sometimes your dreams get broken in pieces
But that doesn't matter at all
Take it from me, there's still gonna be
A summer, a winter, a spring and a fall

And sometimes a friend starts treating you bad
But the world goes 'round
And sometimes your heart breaks with a deafening sound

Somebody loses and somebody wins
Then one day it's kicks, then it's kicks in the shins
But the planet spins, and the world goes 'round
And 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round
The world goes 'round and 'round and 'round
And 'round!

Hello Again

Should I start a blog? Oops, I already have one!

Poor June, totally ignored, when so many wonderful things occur in the month of busting-all-over-June.

I'm back, kids! Well, I'm going to try and be back. Things are go, go, go...but I'm going to attempt to revisit some "likes" this summer. 

Until then, here is a list of new Minnesota State Fair foods:

What better way to welcome July than dream about Candied Bacon Cannolis and Mini Donut Batter Crunch Ice Cream?
