Of Buckets and Bridges

In the interest of trying to write more often, I’ve decided to try out Word Press’s “Daily Prompt.”  Today’s prompt is “What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?” I was tempted to skip this because I don’t really have an official bucket list.  (Was that even a thing before that movie came out?)  As …

Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Second Grade

I like that title, don’t you?  They’ve been re-using that old Chevrolet jingle this summer during baseball games, and it came to me one day that “second grade” was a perfect replacement for “Chevrolet.”  Even more perfect since I will be teaching second grade this fall.  I’m very excited about the change, and just a …

I Hope They’re Not Sitting Here

Baseball season is upon us again, and I thought it would be fun to make a list of the people you don’t want to sit around you. The Drunks Let’s just start with the obvious, especially if you have small kids like I do.  You just know somebody’s going to spill something, fall over someone, …

Opening Day at Home

Today was Opening Day for the Cincinnati Reds, and although we were fortunate to be at the ballpark last year, this year we spent it at home.  We still celebrated though.  We had a small family gathering and the kids did their best to make it feel like we were really at the ballpark.  We …

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

I’m always looking for new ways to fix chicken.  But my kids are kind of picky, and my husband doesn’t always like something different, so it’s hard.  A few days ago, I found a recipe for crock pot Italian chicken.  But I didn’t have everything I needed on hand to make that particular recipe, so I …

Play Ball!

Today is the first Spring Training game for the Cincinnati Reds, it is 32 days until Opening Day, and I dropped C off this morning at a baseball mini-camp put on by our high school team.  C wore his baseball pants and last year’s C-league jersey and hat.  I got this big stupid grin on …

Mmm…Soft Pretzels

I love soft pretzels.  Love them.  L-o-v-e them.  Want me to say it backward?  Them love I.  When we go to a baseball game, I like to get a soft pretzel and a big Coke.  (Only 37 days til Opening Day!!)  I like when restaurants have pretzel bites for appetizers, and I like sandwiches on …

Pajama Pants and Second Thoughts

Not wanting my son to feel left out, I whipped up a quick pair of pajama pants.  Just in time for spring training this week, I picked up some baseball-themed fabric.  C is a big baseball fan and he loves his Cincinnati Reds.  He can tell you every player’s number, even the bullpen catcher (Mike …

Mmmm, Pizza

Even though I want to cook more, tonight’s dinner was one of my Christmas presents. My husband ordered some deep dish pizza. From Chicago. We took a family trip to Chicago at the end of the summer and Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza was definitely one of the highlights. It was sooooo good. Their sauce …

Batter Up!

Batter Up! is the name of my imaginary future bakery. I even have a logo for it; if I can figure out how to post it, I will, as soon as I get it out of my head and on paper. When I was trying to think of a name (you think about things like …
