I want to start a category of posts based on the view from my seat. It will become more interesting as the travel goes on. Here is the idea, one picture snapped from my seat once a week (maybe more often). A mini travel log.
Today Jacob was a helper! We had noms, baby snuggles, Asbach brandy, and more snuggles.
This weekend Dame Helen Mirren turns 69. I believe she is more beautiful now than when she was younger.
Imagine… THAT beautiful woman only got better. <3
It sounds cheesy but “Be Your Own Beautiful” is something I believe in. Media cons a lot of people into thinking that they can’t be beautiful because of some magical number. If Tyler Durden were here he would tell you that you are NOT the number on your scale. You are not the size of your jeans.
Fuck the media and their standard of beauty. If you had a team of experts ready with spackle and hair gel 24 hours a day and Photoshop every image ever taken of you – you would still be YOU when it is all said and done. Make up can only cover up ugly on the outside.
Don’t believe me — Google “celebrities without makeup” … Colbie Caillat gets it.
You aren’t here to be anyone’s kind of beautiful but your own.
Out and about yesterday Himself spotted a pro-wolves bumper sticker. This always excites me to see others who love wolves and such. As we got closer we saw several enlightened stickers. The last one I saw before the driver flicked his cigarette butt out of his window was this one …
I am not even kidding.
We got along side of him and I rolled down the window and shouted at him “WAY TO SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT — ASSHOLE!!”
Not the most zen thing to do — but it was better than my first instinct to jump out of the car, picking up the butt and flicking it BACK into his face.
Thank you to my 4th grade teacher Mr. Kuplic for introducing me to Nikola Tesla.
Happy Birthday Nikola
Last time I gave you the recipe for the meatloaf – here is the recipe for the smashed cauliflower.
You know I love books, but being in such a small space there is not really room for me to carry around a lot of extra stuff. So I love my KINDLE. Today – I realized I loved it even more.
You can install a small app on your desktop (Windows / Apple / Android) and have just about any and every ebook, text file, html whathaveyous sent to your Kindle. YAY!!
You can also put the Kindle app on your computer, and smart phone — having a Kindle gets you some perks but you don’t have to go buy one to use it as a reader!!

A friend dropped by to say hello this evening.
Happy Birthday to the love of my life. I am so grateful for you and all that you are.
My all-time favorite HDH
Himself has been
nagging reminding me to post my recipes onto the blog. So here is the first of many (he hopes).
This meatloaf came about when we went Low-Carb. Most fillers for meatloaf are bread or crackers and sugar based ketchups – I missed the comfort of meatloaf so I started playing with my food.
