Why? my blog title "Better2me"

As a woman, mother, and wife my first instinct is to take care of those around me. I nurture those I love in many ways through out the day, but sometimes find myself neglecting me. Recently I realized that I need to nurture myself as well. So this blog is about ME!!!!! What fills my heart; my simple life of kids, husband, animals, home, and creativity. For being better2me leads me to be better to those I love.

Usually I am a summer type of girl, love the heat, the outdoor activities the growing and cooking of food, but with the intense heat we have been experiencing the last few weeks I have been longing for a taste of fall. We today we finally got a tidbit. Although of course it came when Keaton traveled to the nearby mountains with his school for a three day science camp. My never am I going to wear a sweater son, may find himself a little chilly. Anyway, I spent the day enjoying some of the joys cold weather has to offer.

First I met girlfriends for our weekly coffee klatch, something I would never miss whether hot or cold or blizzard or heat wave.

Next I gathered ingredients from trader joes and headed home to watch a scary movie.

Made some soup........Parmesan, basil, and tomato and chicken curry.

Rewired two old(I'm talking 30 and 40 year old ones) lamps.

Light a fire and listened to the thunder and lightening, although Roxy was not too happy at all about it.


  1. Well your day was way better than mine. Sounds like a good way to spend a cool rainy day! Way to go on fixing those lamp wires. Soup sounds yummy too. So how was the movie?

    1. I actually really liked it, very different.
