My Tin Man, with update

29 March, 2014 - Saturday

The Child Unit in The Wiz, playing the Tin Man at Uni.  I’m so proud.  I’ve not been allowed to see the production until ‘they got it right’, and so I’ll be going next week.  I really cannot wait.

4-5-2014 – We drove up to see the show yesterday and wow!! He sang 2 solos and danced, and acted and was absolutely fan-freaking-tastic.  Costume was great, makeup was great and his voice — he sang his songs so well, and with such emotion that I really felt sad for the Tin Man.  I’m a proud mama for sure.

Christmas & Holiday Recipe Collection

12 December, 2012 - Wednesday

I thought I’d post from This Food Thing here (my other blog all foodie related), for those that read this blog, but don’t know about the other.  A mini collection of my Christmas & Holiday recipes.  Check out the blog for more.

 

Time flies when you are busy! I just moved, and hopefully will get back to cooking and creating recipes once the holidays are over. Until then…..

I’ll be making some Peppermint Bark candy this weekend and The Best Sugar Cookies ever.

A few more holiday treat recipes to entice you:

Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies (Spritzgeback) – Simple and easy recipe

Easy Cherry Almond White Chocolate Fudge – wosa yummy

Crunchy Nutella Hazelnut Chocolate Bars – these are like heaven in your mouth

Peanut Butter Fudge – A childhood favorite — When I make these, I have to give 3/4 away, or I’ll eat it all

Cranberry-Orange Pecan Bread – this is just amazingly lovely

Roosamanna (Semolina Pudding) – A great Estonian pudding and one I will make for Christmas Eve

 

Halloween Statue — Pearl

3 November, 2012 - Saturday

Halloween started early this year — Mid-August.  Laurie has had the idea to build this statue for a very long time, and this year, decided to tackle it.  I gave a bit of help, but she did most all of it.

A bit of plumbing pipe and fixtures, a bit of chicken wire, a pool noodle, a wig form, a wig, some old clothes from the thrift store, a king sized sheet, and a LOT of Monster Mud (exterior latex paint mixed with joint compound).  And PL.  Can’t forget the PL.

It is fantastic!  It made the Yard Haunt look even better than ever.

Halloween 2012 – Brewster Yard Haunt

31 October, 2012 - Wednesday

The Halloween Brewster Yard Haunt 2012.

(Facebook link to Brewster Yard Haunt)

Halloween is a very fun time here in Brewster.  The Brewster Yard Haunt has been going on for the last 10 years, slowly getting larger and larger.   I got involved about 4 years ago, and have had a great time getting to participate.   I’ve loved getting to know some of the creative people who have done a huge amount of creating: Laurie Manning, Jim Kramer & Kevin Kennedy.

This year, I got to help create a few things (wielding my trusty paint brushes), and was happy (as always), to be able to help set up and take down this incredible display.    Mostly though, for me, it was just fun to be around two of my besties – painting, grumbling, creating, and laughing.  For that alone, I’m already looking forward to next year.
