Throwback Post: Climbing Mountains and Visiting Kat


August 14 2015:

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. -John Muir … Guess where I get to be this afternoon? Subbing in Stillwater today. I love the amazing quotes covering the walls. xoxo


First day back getting to go visit Ms. Kat!! Happy young lady!!! Thank you Kat McLain for inviting Lillian once a week again and oceans of gratitude for the Federal Reserve “Love Notes” …. You bless us in so many ways!! xoxo

Team TLC and Romano Duo Christmas 2021 – Great Food With Harsh Driving Conditions and New Slippers

December 24 2021

Cranberry sauce and green bean casserole ready for tomorrow. Felt like cooking, experimenting, so made a vegan mushroom loaf for me and Thomas for tomorrow.

December 25 2021

Sending love to all, and warmth from 34 degrees! 🎄🎄🎄❄️❄️❄️🎄🎄🎄Team TLC, The Romano Duo, and Robert.

A beautiful afternoon with a lovely vegan dinner. My mom made vegan deviled eggs for me and Thomas. Very creative! Merry Christmas to all. May you be surrounded by love, joy, peace, and laughter.

Thomas took this photo during our drive home. This was right before I nearly threw up. 🤮 I have 4 wheel drive and can handle driving in snow, as long as I can go slow. However, when I can’t see the lanes, or the road in front of me, it absolutely unnerves me.

For local friends: Once I exited 580, getting on old 395, I was able to relax. I cannot handle the new freeway at night, in high winds or blizzard, snow conditions. I feel much safer on old 395, even though there was more snow on the road.

All good now. Car unloaded, ready to relax.

Thank you to The Romano Duo! Who else got new slippers? ❄️☕️☕️☕️❄️ And since I get holes in them so quickly, two sets!

Thanks to my daddy for the new cold weather boots. Wide toe box, barefoot/minimalist style, and vegan. Need to send them back for a half size bigger to allow room for cozy socks. Love them!

Throwback Post: In the High Desert With Cornichons and Peaches


August 22 2013:

So very grateful to have the opportunity and option for Thomas and Lillian to attend High Desert Montessori! These are two of the quotes on the walls in Thomas’ building.

Thomas loves going there and loves his teacher, Mrs. Nicole. Lillian is happy and I love everything about it. This is our 2nd year at HDMS and it was such a relief to get rid of the constant back and forth about Lillian and her IEP at the traditional public school. Her IEP went from over 30 pages to about 7 pages when we moved to HDMS.

Thomas did have some rough bumps last year, but since he switched teachers after Spring Break last year, it’s been wonderful. Plus, over the summer the Friends of HDMS bought the building Lillian’s class is in AND the office building next door! Now, we’ve got the room for a HDMS High School (currently stops at 8th grade). YAY!! We LOVE HDMS!


Cornichons! Bought these thinking they were just tiny pickles. WOW! They are tart! The more I eat em the more I like em! Definitely a different flavor. Just did a search online and found: Cornichons are pickled French gherkins and not cucumbers. They are related but not the same plant race. YUM and You’re Welcome!


August 22 2012:

YUM!!! Thank you Kimberly Phipps-Nichol for always thinkin of Team TLC when you have too much fresh food … Yummy maters, fresh peaches and nectarines and even some delicious dried peaches!! Lillian took some of the dried peaches in her lunch today and I had the heirloom tomato and a fresh peach today with lunch … My mouth and tummy were happy dancin!!! I’m grateful for YOU and for yummy fresh food!!
