I thought putting a fence up in our backyard would take five hours, tops.
Karen Wisegarver sent me this recipe for Creamy Pumpkin Mousse Pie and I wanted to share it - I'm loving all these pumpkin recipes from readers. This one, like the Pumpkin Pie Crustless Custard, can work if you even if you can't eat sugar.
My new guest blogger, Anita Dukeman of Arthur, sent me these delicious-looking recipes along with her recipe for chicken stock last week.
I'm thinking soup for dinner sounds pretty good right now.
Rob and I were at a dinner stalemate (OK, it was not that dramatic, but it makes for a good story) last Friday night.
This year, Rob and I attended our favorite annual Halloween party dressed as a bear and a bear hunter.
Time for an announcement – starting Monday, I will be covering K-12 education, mostly in Champaign and Urbana, for The News-Gazette.
This guest post is by Cari Rich, an Urbana resident who works for the National Council of Teachers of English. I first met her when I did a story about the Twin City Derby Girls. Writing is pretty crucial to my life and livelihood, so I thought it would be cool to let Cari tell you about the National Day on Writing.
I am so excited today to introduce (or re-introduce, if you're a faithful newspaper reader) you to Anita Dukeman.
Whew - have you ever been relieved to go back to work at the end of a weekend? I'm glad to be at my desk today.
I tend to have a love-hate relationship with our back yard.
I spend weeks ignoring it, then manically weeding for a few days before giving up on it and letting the weeds grow high. But lately, I've been spending more time out there because of our dog, Milou.
