I have been really motivated to cook lately. It’s probably because I have had a little break from test taking since I am in between semesters. I was talking to my stepmom the other day and she said that my Dad was wanting to start doing Keto again. I decided that I was going to look up some …

Old Tom looked at his corn field and pastures, “I’m getting too old to do this. I need to cut back, maybe retire. If I put a big pond down in that boggy spot I could fish everyday. He stocked it with bass and bluegill, taught his grandchildren how to fish and retired to the good life – too l…

This week is super special because it is Jake’s birthday! If you have been keeping up on Facebook, you can see where I bought him a gift for every day in August up until his birthday. I’ve tried to make him feel very special this year because with the coronavirus changing everyone’s lives, I…

The dog days of August suffocate us. It used to be that a demonstration of “hot” meant you could fry an egg on the sidewalk. However, with global warming, that sidewalk business is now cool. Here in the mountains with the high humidity and the now higher temperatures mean that you can boil a…

The two milk cows grazed contentedly in the lush green pasture of the North Dakota prairie: summertime and the livin’ was easy. Behind them the big red barn took shape through the morning mists. Twin silos stood guard over the long milking shed on the north side. Their bright white domes see…

With outdoor activities being amongst the few things that can bring people together this season, I thought it would be great to share a refreshing drink that can take your bar-b-ques to the next level. Not only is this great for an outdoor get together, but it is also great for all those dri…

On a hot summer afternoon, Joe took his blue pistol and shot at Bobby. Bobby shot back with his red water gun, and the battle was on. They played Water War for most of the afternoon. When Joe got home his mom said, “You’re soaking wet. Whatever were you doing at Bobby’s house?”

I hope everyone had a great Forth of July celebrating with their family. Just like America, I have a July birthday myself and it is coming up this week! 27 is going to hold so many special memories- graduating with my masters, finishing our house, and most importantly getting married! Someti…
