Livin' Large, Baby...

A peek into my rock star life...

A late night beer with a side of guacamole.

The Mr. and I know how to live it up when the kiddies are away.

I think I'm the only one that likes the time change.

Late night baking is fun when you don't have to set an alarm.

Most things are fun when you don't have to set an alarm.

I did some spring cleaning.

Beds were stripped.

Quilts were washed.

Rooms straightened.

Since The Offspring were gone, it stayed that way for a few days.

I took some time off from kitchen detail.

The Mr. and I went out for vegan enchiladas.

I think mole sauce and corn tortillas are a match made in heaven.


My first batch of perfectly prepared tofu.

Mid-week I headed out to the country to gather The Offspring and visit with Mom and Pops.

I made a completely vegan meal.

Now, if you know my Pops, you know that he ain't the vegan sort. He is meat and potatoes all the way.

I was proud of Pops. He cleaned his plate. And even had seconds.

This cornbread = amazing.

If the vegan label makes you wary, set the bias aside. It was like corn cake. A perfect mate to the meatless taco soup we had for supper.

Perk of being in the country: Your table's centerpiece is picked from the backyard.

The downside: no dishwasher.

But, being able to watch a Spurs game on television with my Pops made it all better. So did beating Dallas. And then watching all the slow-mo replays during the post-game show.

Yeah. Doing the dishes by hand was well worth it.

I am a Spurs nerd. To the core.

St. Patrick's Day: the wee ones had green Sprite while the not-so-wee ones had green Lone Star.

Pops put a lot of food coloring in that beverage.

The Girl's upper lip was tinged green for two days.

Another perk of being out in the country: The Offspring spend most of the day outside playing.

Easy to do when weaponry is involved.

Don't worry. He didn't shoot his eye out.

All too soon, it was time to head back to the city.

Back to our crib.

Back to all the furries.

The Mr. still has his beard, so I'll include him in that group.

Did you see the moon last night?

It was a little cloudy here in H-town. But it was still big and bright.

Guess what peeps?

It's officially SPRING!

So, what's been going on in your rock and roll life?

Spill it.

And then share it over here.
