Haute Mamas

‘Normal’ is becoming a thing of the past

This week was supposed to be an easy one for me. Margaret only had to go to school one day for standardized testing. I only had to get up early once. I had planned on sleeping in, working, exercising, hanging out with Mar. It didn’t work out that way. Instead, I had one of the most … more

Let's Get Dirty

Heating mats work for seedlings

A few years ago, I got to interview Joe Cocker because he wanted to talk about tomatoes. He was a lovely person and he had read some of my old Stine’s Lines columns, where I had written about the frustrations of starting seeds. He gave me a seedling heat mat, which I treasure because … more

A Penny Pinching Ski Lunch

We decided to take a trip to Snowmass this weekend to use 2 of our Classic Pass days. Snowmass, you ask??? How do we make that cheap at all???  It's not easy, but it can be accomplished by: 1. Not staying in Snowmass. 2. Not eating out for breakfast (we take something to heat up … more

Breakfast for Dinner

A little overdue but, hey, so was the baby

After blogging about my pregnancy, I admittedly dropped the ball on the most important update of all: my baby! Sorry about that. I thought about it a couple times when I had free time while on maternity leave but then I decided to nap instead. Sometimes, I did laundry. I'm happy … more

Getting Fat

  I've wanted to give fatbiking or snowbiking a shot for a while but last winter we had such good snow conditions the skis always took priority. After all, when you get back to back powder days all winter long, it would be rude not to take advantage of it. This year is a whole … more

Dunnocks, Serins and Shitepokes, Oh My! (And, “White Arses?”)

Previously, I did a bit of a riff on nonsensical bird names (http://www.gjsentinel.com/blogs/birds_and_more/entry/what-comes-to-mind-when-you-hear-someone-yell-great-tits). It seems we have the “Old World” to blame for many of them. Last summer, I visited France and Italy. It … more
