Updates from a Besotted Grandmother

At not quite two (21 months,) Josie is cracking codes left and right. She knows her basic (no puce or chartreuse yet) colors and recognizes letters (all of them) and numbers (1-11) and counts to eleven. She doesn't say the alphabet yet, but she does recite Ba, ba, black sheep - all four lines of it.  She recognizes some words, usually when accompanied by pictures. (This is something I do whenever she lets me use her markers. And this is something I did to entertain my older son -- wh...

Sophie Turner's Favorite Tattoo Has Nothing To Do With Joe Jonas

A lot of actors make a point of leaving their characters behind when they finish a film, but for Sophie Turner, there was at least one thing about the title character in Josie that she wasn't ready to let go of: her tattoos." I had all these badass tattoos all over my body," Turner told Refinery29 in an interview last year. "I looked at myself in the mirror and I was like, 'This is so far from my redheaded, pale, clean-cut look.' That was really fun for me." So fun, in fact, that in the months ...

Fading Beauty . . .

For almost a month the amaryllis have bloomed and bloomed -- thirteen blossoms on three stems -- and now they are fading. Delicate petal edges crumple inward and colors grow more nuanced. Another few days and I'll move the bulbs into the bed in the greenhouse in hopes of an eventual glorious resurrection. Along with the pleasure their beauty has given us, has been the delight of hearing Josie say Ama-RILL-us! [Author: Vicki Lane]

Josie Maran Skin Dope Argan + Hemp Oil with Live Footage of Me Reading The Reviews On It

Some part of me thinks Josie Maran Skin Dope Argan + Hemp Oil ($65) is a ridiculous name. Dope, hemp, am I reading to much into the innuendos? As we head into Spring 2019, you’re going to start seeing a lot of “cleaner” beauty products and ones that include hemp oil. This trended started late last year with the introduction of products from Milk Makeup like their Kush High Volume Mascara which contains hemp-derived cannabis seed oil. Why do I feel like brands do this just to seem somehow ed...

Proofreading Again

Proud of myself. First I managed to get the header and the page numbers on my manuscript. (It should be easy but I have to relearn this step every time.) In glancing through the pages, I discovered several lines of little square dots that will NOT disappear with a simple delete.  (Something that Word does occasionally for its own inscrutable reasons.) I've had this problem before and always left it to someone (copy editor) else to fix. As there is no someone else at this point, I asked...

Josie -- In Her Own Words

I had to share this. I wasn't there and don't have pictures but these seem to fit the theme. (Plus, there's Ali Ali sitting at the table.)  Anyway, a few nights ago, Justin was giving Josie her bath and she decided she was ready to get out. "We have to wash your face first," he told her. "Why?" she asked. Taken aback, he said, "You're too young to be asking why." She looked at him and replied,"How 'bout that."  Any day now, she'll wrest the keyboard from m...

Josie Escapes the Troll

Our niece and nephew and their boys from Charlottesville came for a quick visit last night . . . bringing gumbo made with duck and chicken and sausage! Josie was entranced with the big boys . . . They will have a lively New Year's Eve tonight down at Justin and Claui's. I'll spend today cooking collards and black eyed peas with hog jowl and taking down the Christmas tree -- a quiet ritual I always enjoy. The lights will stay around through January.

'S No Globe

I've always wanted a snow globe -- preferably with a little cottage and a few trees  -- but I found this one with Santa at an affordable price and ordered it for Josie.  We were both entranced and played with it for several hours. When her daddy came up for supper, he picked it up and turned it upside down (just as we'd been doing) and the globe separated from the base and shattered on the chest we use as a coffee table. Bummer. I gave it a bad review on Amazon and tried to contact the...

Getting Ready for Christmas . . . and Snow

I spent yesterday morning doing the Christmas cards -- around forty of them. It's always been a pleasant task -- sending good wishes to folks. But more and more it's also a kind of bittersweet day of memories as I leaf through my address book and see all the names crossed out due to death, the changes of address due to downsizing or divorce.  Maybe I should start afresh with a new address book and  save the old one to peruse on All Souls Day. It would be a fitting exercise. But...

Time to Toss the Pumpkins

Colder weather, along with this beautiful pot of amaryllis and paperwhites (an early Christmas gift from Claui's folks) and a whole raft of brightly wrapped gifts from Fay in Virginia (she's always beforehand with gifts, doggone it) are telling me it's time to make the shift from autumnal colors to reds and greens.  Time to toss out the pumpkins and decorative gourds (the squirrels and other critters will enjoy them) and begin bringing out the Christmas odds and ends too. Maybe I sho...

Comment on sheet pan chicken tikka by Josie

I made this for dinner last night, and it was delicious. My whole family enjoyed it. I used both chili powder and cayenne by accident, but that was a happy mistake. When I make this next time (there WILL be a next time) I think I’ll drain the juices from the pan midway through cooking. My veggies ended up cooked in juices and were not as crispy as I would’ve liked them. Or maybe I won’t do that and will just know what to expect. We served with the pickled red onions, yogurt, cilantro, and tamari...
