I'm over it.
I'm breaking up with Blogger.
I've taken everything and moved here.
It's nothing really dramatic. I just needed something easy and new. Every clean break up calls for a change. A cleanse.
It's not you, it's me.
Come on over and check it out.
Life Is Still Sweet has a new home!
Some things just transcend seasons, trends and decades. These things are rare, but forever genuine.
A perfect beef stew is one of these genuine treasures.
The key word here is a perfect beef stew. There are lots of things that could go wrong, thus rendering a stew bland and not worthy.
The key element to make a stew sing and become transcendental..................
There's a distinct difference in being content, and realizing that there is absolute peace and joy where you are.
I thought it was great being content. Content sounds full, needing little and grinning much.
But there's a place beyond that has an immense feeling of gratitude and calm.
I moved to Arizona from Colorado and for years I was constantly comparing and feeling like I left home. That there was this place, a better place, waiting for me to return.
It was driving back from my little vacation when I realized, I AM in a beautiful place.
I was overwhelmed with a feeling that was beyond being content in this land, but actually feeling like it was home. A home where all is right and wonderful. Where everything is familiar and I have little need to be anywhere else.
Home in a desert with its mysteries and treasures.
I'm days away from a little vacation that will involve nothing but my little family, sand, waves and the promise of extra fresh seafood.
For years my daughter has talked about seeing the ocean. Ever since she knew of its existence she has begged us to go.
It's just that a beach in the middle of a land locked desert takes some effort to get to.
It also makes the abundance of really amazing seafood a bit sparse. However, it can happen.
