My daughter wanted quiche for supper, so she got a crash course in pie crust, and sharp white cheddar, gruyere, bacon, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot quiche.

Wordless Wednesday: Holidays at My House

WordlessWed

The holidays at my house look a lot like this…calm, serene…quiet. But if you look closer…

Loki’s a little intense.

Kitsune’s just confused.

Morrighan would like everyone to leave her the hell alone so she can take a nap in her happy place.

And me? I’d just like the tree to stay upright.

Wordless Wednesday – Autumn Where I Live

wordlesswed

Autumn, in Michigan, is stunningly gorgeous. And it’s my favorite season.  Though, there are days that I’m not sure why, since every year, it actively attempts to murder me.  (All photos taken by me.)

Wordless Wednesday: Summer Where I Live

wordlesswed

It’s another edition of Wordless Wednesday, and as usual, mine will probably have words.

There are some things that piss me right off about Michigan, but the landscape isn’t one of them. No matter the season, it’s almost always freaking gorgeous. Here are what some of my favorite spots look like in summer.

Northern shore of Lake Michigan. We had so much fun swimming in the waves.

As you may have guessed, I really like being by (and in) the water. I try to spend as much time by the water as possible in the summer–as long as I have my SPF Vampire handy, that is.

When this posts, I’ll be blissfully in the middle of our annual writers retreat, but here are some of the photos I took this past week.

Wordless Wednesday: Spring Where I Live

wordlesswed

Things are only just now starting to get green in the area of Michigan where I live, but the flowers are finally blooming and soon my lilac bushes will be, too, and I’ll be in heaven. But for now, I have wood violets, grape hyacinths, regular hyacinths, daffodils, and the crab apple blossoms.

What’s is like where you are? Be sure to check out Jess, Deelylah, and Kris‘ spring, too!

Wordless Wednesday – Winter Where I Live

wordlesswed

This winter has been weird, yo.

Normally, this is what winter in West Michigan looks like.

However, this year, there’s some weird shit going on. We’ve even had 50 degree days in February. This is not normal. This is what it looks like today.

I just went outside without a coat on to take this picture. It’s like spring out there.
