Month: June 2014

This is my turtle, Joe, catching a few rays of afternoon sunshine on his “mermaid island.”  This little island was a gift that a good friend had ordered online many moons ago – because I liked mermaids so much.  It came with a treasure chest, 6 mermaids and it floats.  I have since misplaced those extra accessories, but I’ve used the island […]

So, here we go.  Rounding the corner into the last two months of this pregnancy.  I have to say that I’ve felt much better than when I was pregnant with Everett.  I’m not swollen.  I have much more energy and overall the experience has been wonderfully uneventful.  Now I’m not one who loves being pregnant […]

Every time I hear Kelly Clarkson’s song “People Like Us,” I don’t hear it the way she sings it.  I don’t hear the line “We’re all misfits living in a world on fire.”  I hear “We’re all dipsticks living in a world on fire.”  There’s a word for this phenomenon: it’s called a “mondegreen,” the […]

Every time I go to the grocery store I like to check the bottom of the receipt where it says, “You saved *X* amount with us today”.  It kind of gives me a thrill to know I did some smart shopping.  I try to buy items that are store specials and store brands like Roundy’s.  […]

I am very into gardening and I’m growing some of my own vegetables this year.  But when I want to make something that calls for veggies I don’t have I head into Copps to pick up what I need.  I know their produce is always going to be super fresh.  For this recipe I’m going […]

If you’re like me, the hot weather really curbs my appetite.  I just don’t feel like eating as much in the summer.  And when I do eat, it’s usually just small, light meals.  That’s why the Copps/Pick N Save websites are so helpful.  They give me dozens of recipe ideas that are on the light […]

I knew it would happen.  One day I would wake up and suddenly have the responsibility of taking care of my aging parents.  That day is here.  I know most everyone has to go through this and now it is my turn.  Recently my dad fell and broke his hip.  He is now in a […]

These are two of my friends who “reside’ at the Steep & Brew coffee shop on Odana Road.  Flora, who is also an artist,paints murals and scene sets. Saad (right) is the big Kahuna who runs the place.  It’s a rather small space – which is what makes it a fun place to hang out.   Often there will be an open conversation in […]

I’m just like you….busy, busy, busy.  I don’t have time to make six trips to the grocery store in one week because I forgot this item or that item.  That’s why I love the Copps and Pick N Save website so much.  It gives me recipe ideas I can make for the week and a […]

I am on a mission to eat healthier so I’ve made some changes.  I always read labels, try to eliminate as much sugar as possible and add even more fruits and veggies to my diet.  And I am happy my favorite grocery store is cheering me on.  Copps is committed to sourcing locally grown produce […]
