Movie Monday Oops, the draft published itself! 😱

The Bag Lady

An oldie but goodie: “Desk Set” with Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn. Their first dinner together is very funny. You can almost feel the rapport these two actors have, right through the screen.

Bunny Watson (Katharine Hepburn) is a library reference clerk stuck in a dead-end relationship with a boring television executive (Gig Young). Her life is thrown into turmoil when computer expert Richard Summers (Spencer Tracy) enters it. He has been assigned with automating her department, and she is fearful that Summers’ new computers will automate her out of a job. She despises him at first, but eventually each of the two start to fall for the other’s charms and strong personalities.

Release date: May 15, 1957 (USA)

This is from a journal of long ago, dated 4/5/91. I don’t recall the particular drama that was the subject of the talk.


Last night I walked and talked with a good friend who tends to run off at the mouth when drunk. He was fretting for my well-being and angry because he thought he’d seen me mistreated. I heard his concern and my heart was truly touched.

“Close your mouth now,” I said to him many times, “and open your ears.” This, he did (though not for long at a time). I think he understood some of what I told him. I think he found some comfort and peace in those words.

Still, he does not yet seem to understand the Testing … the necessity of passing through the Dark and Stormy Night better to SEE the Dawn come in Peace and Light. He has not accepted, perhaps, that…

Tea and Tales


I can’t believe it’s Friday already! I am working on a Tea Book themed Tea. This one couldn’t be any easier to do! You can get some from the library or a used book store and use them as props with a different tea showcased by each book.

The only thing better than a book is a book with tea. These are a few of my favorite books with tea as a theme. Of course you could use every single Laura Child’s Teashop Mystery Series, but I like to branch out a bit. I love the tea leaf reading one and that is an activity we will be trying.

So how was your week? Besides having a sick man-child yesterday mine was good. Maybe because I chose to be happy. In whatever circumstance I find myself, I’m still happy. Just to be here!

I hope you have a great week-end…

My lil baker

The Pink Herald's Blog

Many of you know my daughter is homeschooled.  An area we focus on, besides core classes, is life skills.  It’s so important for a child to know how to take care of him/herself.  One area, that I truly enjoy teaching my daughter is cooking and baking.  She may not take initiative in cleaning her room or showering (what is with tweens???), but cooking and baking are becoming her thing.  She doesn’t even realize she’s reinforcing fractions, reading and science concepts.

Having worked in the hospitality industry most of my life, I am constantly taking pictures of my culinary creations.  My lil miss has picked up on this and now takes pictures of her creations.

Yesterday, I saw she posted a pic of green whipped cream that she was beating by hand.  I called her and let her know, she’d need to beat it a lot more.  Even I use the…

Review: Anastasia Eyebrow Pomade


Here is a makeup review for many drugstore and higher end makeup products, including the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade from Sephora! I absolutely love it, but I also mention a cheaper Walmart dupe in the video.

In loving memory: Grandma Weisbeck’s Cheese Buttons (Kase Knepfela)

The Purple Almond

Here is another recipe, as I celebrate the life of my Grandmother, who passed away yesterday at the age of 101.


Here is one of my favorite meals prepared by my Grandmother.

My Grandma came from a large German family, who farmed on the beautiful South Dakota prairie. Born in 1917, she talks about the lack of running water and electricity in their farm house, when she was a girl. Part of their daily chores involved hauling buckets of water to the house each day, and reading by oil lamps in the evening.

Hard work and exercise are the key, she says. The farming and chores they did each day weren’t enough exercise. So they would take walks to the road and back, each night after dinner.

Cheese buttons, an affectionate American name for German Kase Knepfela, were a frequent food at the dinner table. I have fond memories of…
