We Will Embrace The Legacy Of Our Elders

When Lisa was on staycation for a week last month, her parents came to visit. For a day. It had been a long time since we had seen them. We were excited about their visit. It was the first time they would be visiting the house we bought in February of 2020.

The Summer Months Are Simply Just...Noisy


A little over a week ago, Lisa fired up the grill and slapped on a few burgers. While she was doing that, I made homemade baked fries in the oven. It doesn't sound like much, but when this meal comes together, it's better than any takeout burger meal.

The First Of Our Fall Season Bounty...


It's Fall at our Bodacious House! Lots of honey nut squash, apples, warm cider doughnuts, a cider slushy, and fresh-pressed cider from our favorite orchard.

Could It Be? Finally?


Guess what's happening in my Bodacious DIY Dog Mom Workshop? We skipped 2020 because of Covid, but...we're back at it this year!

I Sipped My First Pumpkin Spice Latte In August. And, I Liked It.


There was a time when I waited until the first of October to enjoy anything related to the Fall season. Pumpkin Spice lattes.Fresh apple cider. Stocking up on apples and squash from our favorite orchard. Making the first pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread of the season. Devouring an obnoxious amount of Cortland apples. The list goes on.

We Are Exceptionally Grateful For Those Just Because Gifts


I have no shame in admitting that every so often I get caught up with life. Our kids. The busy. The chaos. The happenings in the world. The demanding schedules. Then. I exhale. Go through photos. Moments.

It Was A Rough Night, But We Got Through It


This was the scene in the wee hours of the morning while the remnants of Ida pounded us. I sent Lisa to bed shortly after she got home from work. I stayed up. On the sofa.
