Live Real. Eat Real.

Random Tuesday Winter…Stuff

Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve participated in Random Tuesday Thoughts, but I actually had some random this week, so here we go.  Grab the new and improved funky purple button, link up to Keely and let’s all play along.


Excerpt from an IM conversation between me and Oldest Son:

Me: Your mother is a strange person, dear

Oldest Son: LOL how so?

Me: I can guarantee she’s the only person you know who says things like “Well, shit – I need to take another jar of lard out of the freezer.”

Oldest Son: LMAO

What?  It’s true.


Why is it that I can find a pair of shoes, try them on, walk around the store and declare them the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn in my entire life only to take them home and the minute I put them on, they rub 47 huge blisters on my feet?

Someone please tell me this phenomenon is not limited to just me.


A conversation between me and The Young One, when the Miami Heat went to Cleveland for their game last week:

TYO: Are you excited about the football game?

Me:  It’s basketball, honey.

Hey, at least he knew it was a sport and they were playing a game.


To the person who found my blog via a search for “Gross pics of liver and onions”:

#%$@ you too.


Seen on a t-shirt in a local butcher shop (alas, one that does not sell grass-finished beef or pastured pork, but does sell the best Mexican chorizo I’ve found in Ohio):

“Friends don’t let friends buy grocery store meat.”

Amen, brother.  Amen.


And here is the view in my neighborhood this morning.

Our Street

Our Humble Abode

I think the black and white really emphasizes the bleak starkness of it all, don’t you?

It’s gonna be a long winter.  *sigh*
