Welcome To My Heaven On Earth

It's that time of year when we are transitioning from a season of heat and humidity to a season of cool breezes and chilly evenings. 

At least, that's what's right around the corner for us up here on the mountain top. We've already had our first night that dipped into the 40's and it was heavenly! Clear and cold with a billion stars twinkling brightly in the sky - the kind of night that reminds you that fall is on its way!

Summer Garden Ragu

As you know, I've been featuring zucchini in my meals quite a bit lately. 

It's hard not to when the garden is being ever-so-generous spitting out zucchini after zucchini!

The Sweet Scents of Home

As most of you know, I absolutely love to cook. 

But almost as much as I love to cook is how strongly I absolutely detest the smell in the house after the meal is done.

You know that feeling, as summer is dwindling, that it's time to do a little more 'nesting?'

It's not quite fall...but the nights are getting cooler, and the leaves are starting to give us a hint of what's to come.

How I Get Inspired To Get Up And Clean!

Do you ever feel like you need a 'boost' in order to get your energy up to clean the house? 

I do. Especially when it's hot and sticky out, like it is this week. 

Uggghhh. Who wants to run around with the vacuum in 90 degrees?

Finding Your Strength

Some folks hold onto resentment and it lies right under the surface, just waiting to erupt at a moment's notice. They carry around grudges forever, and never let go.

It's MountainMama's Birthday!

Exactly one year ago today I hit 'publish' on my very first blog post. 

265 posts later, I can't believe how many of you have stuck around to read the drivel that pours from my head to my hands, and ends up traveling the globe via the WWW.

Fashion Over 40....and Beyond

Let's face it, things change once you hit 40. And for me, that wasn't today or yesterday....I'm getting on up there and rapidly approaching 50!

I can't believe it, but it is what it is.

Busy as a Bee

I'm sure you've guessed that things have been pretty darned busy around my little house recently....thus the lack of blog posts! 

There's so much I want to tell you and show you, and yet I don't have the time to get frequent posts written these days.
