  • The Wheel of Time

    I’ve finished Book 11 of Wheel of Time. I started these as a teenager and voraciously read each one as they came out. I never got passed this point because Robert Jordan died not long after I started having children. The books are long and dense. I become a terrible parent when I’m enthralled in […]

  • French Canadian Split Pea Soup Instant Pot

    French Canadian Split pea Soup Is an absolutely amazing winter (or any time) soup. It has a hearty taste to it that will really stick to your ribs and keep you warm and full in those hard winter climates. It is also super delicious. I usually make this soup after I make a Canadian Pork […]

You still can’t really travel to the states but unless it’s “important” yet, but it is getting there. We also can finally eat inside […]

    Suddenly It’s May

    Dear Amanda, How did it suddenly turn into May? Tomorrow Gavin turns 15. I can’t believe he’s going to start learning to drive already! May the 4th be with us all as he gets behind the driver’s wheel. He’s grown several inches since you last saw him. I guess that’s the nature of teenage boys. […]
