Ready, set, time for the next adventure with the grandkids

Monday, Aug. 05, 2013

“Oh no, he’s not 11 already,” I say to my husband as he searches for his glasses. I’m pacing the floor and wringing my hands at the news, wondering why the grandkids keep aging while I stay young and vibrant. (Yes, really!) I poof my hair, sniff and lift my chest with the back of my hands in confirmation. He stands. It begins.

Wednesday, Jul. 10, 2013

My children tease me that as soon as my grandchildren were old enough to spot a McDonald’s sign, they could also spot a Starbucks store. I make no apologies – I taught them well. I must have my coffee and it helps to have little spotters on board when we are in unfamiliar surroundings.

I would like to acknowledge and thank Dr. John Schmidt for his service and dedication to the people of Mansfield. Dr. Schmidt moved his primary care practice to Mansfield in 1986.

It won’t be long before peach season and peach lovers like me can enjoy peach cobbler, peach ice cream, peach jam, etc. One of my newest peach cravings is a pizza crust with grilled peach slices, prosciutto and fresh mozzarella, drizzled with a little balsamic vinegar on top. It’s a nice combination of sweet and salty for a unique take on the traditional pizza.
