Grown Daughter, “RT” wants me to add some more of our text conversations. I’m kinda proud she thinks they’re worthy.  Here’s the first one. “Grandma Gets Volunteered.”

  • Me: “When I turn 50, I’m gonna start dressin’ like Stevie Nicks.”
  • RT:  “I’ve been waiting 5 years to hear you say that, Mom.” :-O
  • -I think to my
    cat tee shirt, cats eyes, artist tee shirt
    “Arts & Cats”

    self, “That’s only ’cause you watched AHS.”

WRITING NEWS: We lost internet 2 weeks ago Monday, for 5 days at the SAME time hubby’s work car broke down. So he’s been taking my van. OMG no wifi 😦 –  no wheels…. So There’s 15 blog post drafts to upload here.  The creativity has been growing and flowing steadily.

AND I WROTE A COOKBOOK!!   In 5 day’s time, I cranked out the first draft and typeset some of the 2nd. [Writer’s confession: this has been 30 years in the making. But that’s a story saved for another time.]

Spectrum fixed the wifi (mostly)! YAY! The draft-writing continues. 

Updates here as the  Oven-based, Winter Cookbook progresses. I’m starting to upload Free recipes here a few times weekly- for the cook in your house! My daughter helping in several ways, including baking, research and designing the COVER.

Thanks for reading this far  Find a Free Recipe HERE! Roast Acorn Squash- with variations.

If you’re looking to spend less time shopping, lower grocery bills this winter, and serve picky kids more wholesome, home-baked meals–  I’d like to help make your busy life a little easier  – Grandma Auburn

Tired, Restless, Crazy Cat Lady

Today was just full of promise… until about midnight, last night. – Le Sigh.

You know the drill: Hubby tossed, so I turned. Between him and a fat cat trapping me in the covers, plus leg cramps, DONE came at 3am. The cat (Jasper) then crapped in the hallway right after I laid down on the couch. That evidently prompted the dog (Ziggy) to stand at the door with ‘the look’. . .  dangit…

(At least I don’t have any foster pets right now)

By 4, I gave up and started a pot and eased into several hours of research. Though I jotted some notes, I’m sure none of it stuck.  It feels like it’s 6 pm, when in reality it’s only 2:30pm at the TinyTrailer at the moment.  I have a rough time catching a decent nap, ever.  for 5 to 7 phone calls daily –  I really do need turn the ringer OFF and the alarm ON…  But for a business owner, a member of the sandwich generation (is that what they call it??) and a trucker’s wife, missing a call is actually kinda scary.

There IS hope for this afternoon.  PLEASE SEE  BELOW –>>  The next three design releases here are all CAT TEE SHIRTS. YaY!! I was going to release them on my new Instagram account, but alas, I didn’t have the wherewithal to start something new today.  Please follow, share and like. Find me FB, too.
