kets and book / bev cooks

Frrrrrrrrremdemlempemday! WATER BEDS. Do you remember water beds?! And more crucial than that, did you have a water bed? We totally did. Of course we did. What HAPPENED was, my parents’ best friends in the ’80s had a water bed, so we’d go over to their house and play constantly with their small kids on […]

Frrrrrrrrrrrrrrreh! TAYLORDLE? TAY LOR DLE. You’ve seen, right? You’ve heard, right? Tay has her own Wordle game! Five letter words, all related to Swift language. I discovered this yesterday and have only played once. Scratch that, I just pulled it up. I’m on clue two. Is it a SONG? I need a hint. Never mind […]

flowers and boots / bev cooks

FFFFFFFFFFFFFare you ever worried how that’s going to end? You know what makes me crazy? You’re like, “right out of the gate, huh?“ YES. Right out of the gate, Chachi. Because I feel like there needs to be a small (tiny!) change to the way Weather.com reports their forecasts. This is what bugs me: let’s […]

christmas spread / bev cooks

FRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIDDDDEEEEEEEE Flotsam is back! (I’ve said that a lot this week.) Do you ever have that moment when you completely forget what to do with your hands? Or your fingers? It’s more like, your HANDS forget what to do. Like the way you hold something or open something or apply something? And your hands go […]

christmas gifts / bev cooks

FRRRRRRRRalalalalaaaa la la la! I’m diving face first into an impending tinned fish obsession. You’re like, “I do not understand that sentence, nor do I want to.” Tinned fish. I’m getting into it. First of all, why wouldn’t I? Second of all, you do know what I’m talking around, right? There will be a small […]

dried citrus / bev cooks

FRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRalay! I feel like I need to ask this again – what IS a sourdough starter???(?) YES, I googled it. Well, photos of it because I was on my phone and didn’t want to take too much time away from my book. (which one of its main characters is pretty much a sourdough starter.) I […]

fancy lunch / bev cooks

FRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRurderrrrrr. I firmly believe there are two types of puzzle people. (yes we’re back to this subject, calm down.) Type one: the person who puts together a jigsaw puzzle while looking at the cover of the box for guidance. Type two: the person who sits down to work on a jigsaw puzzle, notices the box […]

kids in leaf pile / bev cooks

FRRRRRRRRRoopy doopy loopy! WHOA. GUYS. So last weekend in Stories I made a strata reference from a Christmas movie. You know the one – The Family Stone. But this is the thing, about 1/3rd of the poll submitters (submitters?) didn’t know the movie! And there were thousands of submitters! (submitters cannot be right) Which is […]
