WNY Coffee Shops

Aside: It’s a rare occasion since moving to Weber Wonderland that I long to be back in the city where I can walk to all the things…gathering together information for my latest Springville Times article, is one of those exceptions. COFFEE. Also, I’m SO counting down the days until Art’s Cafe – Springville, NY opens. […]

Weber Wonderland: Coffee Bar!

Weber Wonderland: Coffee Bar! HURRAH! Another completed project, slowly but surely the main floor is becoming our own! Introducing the Weber Wonderland Coffee Bar! In the living room area we had a wet bar closet that I just didn’t know what to do with. Using it as a bar would make sense of course, if […]

Save Carl Kasell’s Coffeemaker!

I *heart* weekend NPR. (Not so much the pledge drive, but tis a necessary evil.) Are you a member? And that damn pledge commercial with the teenagers singing along to the theme song? (doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo dooooo) Love it. Makes me so darn happy imagining having my very own cranky yuppy […]

One cup of coffee away from a good morning…

That pretty much sums me up perfectally! I have been loving the weather lately. So very nice and cool to sleep at night. So nice to sleep in too late in the mornings. I have been slacking with the walking to work. I just can’t pull myself away from the covers. WHICH in the long […]

Travel, Western New York

Wiggle Over to the Jell-O Museum

A repost of my article in the Springville Times: Wiggle Over to the Jell-O Museum Just a short drive across the I-90 in LeRoy, NY sits a small, unassuming and adorably kitschy museum dedicated to “America’s Most Famous Dessert.” Nope, not Apple Pie. Not Chocolate Cake, but the birthplace of the wiggly, jiggly Jell-o. Yes, […]

Monday, Monday

Today was a good day. Monday is one of my full day in the office days. I bring two travel mugs of coffee with me in the morning and I hope for the best. Of course the best usually gets me through about 2pm—and then I may or may not head over to Crosby’s for […]

Cheers to the Beers! ​

A report of my article in the Springville Times: Cheers to the Beers! Cheers to the Beers! Thomas Jefferson once said, “Beer, if drunk in moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit and promotes health.” We agree (in moderation of course.) All across Western New York you can find local breweries serving unique craft beers […]

October Spirit at WNY Distilleries

A repost of my article in the Springville Times: Fall Bucket List: October Spirit at Local Distilleries With the end of October and Halloween around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about staying warm over those long, chilly Western New York nights. Picture that sip of whiskey in front of the fireplace, just waiting […]

Work From Home

Work From Home Tuesday DOES NOT SUCK. It’s a work from home in front of the fireplace (which is ON because it is finally COLD outside in WNY!) with a giant mug of coffee  and a Harley dog that wants to settle down but is still looking up at me asking for love kind of […]

Twitterments. Because not everyone is on Twitter. I find myself saying “it’s only x’o’clock” all the time lately. As in, it’s only 8:39pm o’clock? Really? Today is a finding it hard kind of day to do the daily day things that seem to not matter at all because OUR WORLD IS CRUMBLING IN CHAOS. Am […]

Twitterments

Twitterments. Because not everyone is on Twitter. PBS is so uniquely PBS-y. Most days self-care for me means trying not to beat myself up or feel guilty for saying no and knowing my limits. Hardly pampering. Channeling Tony Stark…”I have a plan, write.” Good on Sean Spicer for seizing the opportunity to reinvent his image. […]

Unbelievable

Unbelievable. While sitting on the porch this morning, drinking my coffee my brain was tumbling over with too many thoughts all at once (as usual.) At one very precise moment, I quieted my mind. And thought one very specific thing…a mantra that came to me recently that I’m trying really hard to wrap my thoughts […]

Man, I just had One Productive Hour.

LEAP! (5,4,3,2,1…)

WHY IS IT THAT??? I can get up at 5:45am and take the dogs outside. WIDE AWAKE. All is ok. I can find myself scrolling through social media at 6am…and then by 6:10am I think “I should just get out of bed and start my day. ” BUT I DON’T. Now it’s 6:30am. And 6:45am […]

Dandelions

In a quest to use more of nature’s free gifts at Weber Wonderland I decided this would be the year I would weed, I mean forage for Dandelions. We have dandelions everywhere. As it should be, right? I never understood why people are so anti-dandelion in their yard. Mow them down, lawn is green. They […]

Sunburn Sunday!

Because Saturday sucked, or didn’t go quite as I hoped. I had an early bedtime and woke up at a normal hour this morning. Baby was it cool outside! We had the windows open all night and HWMMS was ready to shut them and turn on the heat—-but instead, we ventured out into the sun […]

Saturday started off with coffee in bed. HWMMS loves me. It’s been a while since enjoying coffee in bed! Bah, if I knew it was going to be a chilly cloudy day I would have stayed there longer! HWMMS had to get up early(ish) to get to the dealer so the Mistress could be inspected. […]
