My Candy Bar Stage

My Candy Bar Stage
This past week I have been pulling double shifts and I have come to the realization that when I become overally tired I begin to think of the silliest things to help keep myself awake at  3:00 am. Hence one morning during my double shift, I reached into my trusty bag for a kick of chocolate in hopes of keeping my eyes from rolling to the back of my head and as I took my first bite this blog was formed.  Hence, "My Candy Bar Stage." &n...Read More

Pura Vida in Tamarindo

Pura Vida in Tamarindo
Ahhhh, Tamarindo.  The beaches, the scenery, the atmosphere ... there is not much to dislike about this quaint surfer town.  It even rolls off the tongue nicely...Tamarindo. The town is just that: a surfer's mecca.  We chose to except relax, walk along the beach and try a surf lesson with a local.  In fact, Tamarindo is home to surf legend, Robert August, who claimed this town as home after filming the epic surf movie, Endle...Read More

Confession:  I was nervous.  I got a call last month from a mom with a special request.  "I have a child who I'd like you to teach.  I'd like him to do private lessons." "Well ma'am, I'm done teaching for the year.  I don't do private lessons and I can't help you," I said.  I was not interested heading back out to the pool in the hottest months of the summer.  I typically teach in April and May, preparing kids...Read More

Fresh Eggs

Fresh Eggs
My Father n Law got on a baby chicken kick, so last spring he went out and bought all these cute baby chicks.  As they grew they started laying eggs and feed is pretty spendy, so as most chicken people do we have been selling the eggs to help pay for their food; but since we are amateur egg experts we are always wondering, "how do you know if you have a good egg or a rotten egg.  Well today on Facebook I found this little nifty chart t...Read More

Do You Believe in Angels?

Do You Believe in Angels?
This past Saturday I attended a "Patio candle holder in a Vintage Jar" class.  It has been quite a few years since I've attempted anything crafty. I really enjoyed the class. Our teacher was vibrant with no guile.    I really really liked her. As we were preparing our wire she was just chattering away about various topics when suddenly she looked around and simply stated, "I love Angels, I see them all around."  She then loo...Read More
