Planning AheadTammy McLeodimg_5716

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 21:53:32 +0000

The list of things that I intend to accomplish in 2017 is vast. There’s a qualifying paper for my PhD, kids in transition, summer excursions, bodies to get into shape, education reform that needs leadership, friends to catch up with, and plenty of fun to be had. It takes some planning. Weekly menu planning is […]

Party on a PlateTammy McLeodfullsizeoutput_1bd12016-11-24-11-51-33

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday; family and friends, good food, fellowship, no gifts.I think it’s that last piece that I find so freeing. I’ve never been a good shopper, don’t enjoy it as a way to socialize – heck, just ask my family – when they do receive gifts, sometimes they’re not even wrapped! […]

The Glint of LightTammy McLeodIMG_5257

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 16:28:06 +0000

“Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass” – Anton Chekhov This was the wise writing instruction of Chekhov to his brother. Chekhov encouraged his kin to describe the setting in the details. And that is what captured our attention at the The Glass Museum. Relish the […]

Pokémon Go and Public ArtTammy McLeodIMG_5123Screen Shot 2016-07-26 at 8.19.50 PMIMG_5101

With every phenomenon there is hype and inevitably, the media will exorcise the most vile, painful occurrences and report them. Car accidents, muggings, and other inhumane actions occur all the time. It’s just that in the past couple of weeks, they have been the result of a few inattentive or too attentive Pokémon Go players. Some of […]

Spiralizing and the Sharing EconomyTammy McLeodIMG_5052.jpg

In my grandmother’s kitchen there was a gadget for everything. Can’t retrieve the pickle from the bottom of the jar? Use the pickle poker. From lemon squeezers to cherry pitters to olive forks and corn handles, there was a specific use for everything and the appropriate sized baking dish to accompany it. My kitchen bears […]

Kinda Like the Walking DeadTammy McLeodIMG_5016IMG_5014

“It’s sort of like watching one of those TV series. You know, like the Sopranos or the Walking Dead. You watch it, you like it, but every season, somebody’s gonna die.” The analogy made me laugh out loud. That was Todd Bostock, also known as the Allaround Wineworker at Dos Cabezas Wineworks addressing a Saturday afternoon lunch crowd […]

Bringing the Outside InTammy McLeodIMG_4883

Do you think of the arrival of spring as an inhale or an exhale? That was the question posed to our yoga class today as we looked out over the Yampa river from the studio. I love looking at the running water, snow-capped mountains and just beginning to bud cottonwood trees while I’m stretching. There […]

Egg it on – Breakfast Hack SeriesTammy McLeodIMG_4807IMG_4805IMG_4799

“Eat in the car.” That was the clever tip from my 13 yo when I told him that I was doing a series on breakfast hacks. In fact, while not a recommended practice, my son eats on the way to school many days. When there is time, there is nothing better than sitting down at the […]

Come out and PlayTammy McLeodIMG_7261IMG_7265

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 15:22:29 +0000

There’s a new term popping up in the world. It’s playborhood and you don’t have to contemplate it long to understand it’s roots. The notion is that by creating walkable urban spaces, people stay healthier. They interact with each other more often. They move. Perhaps, they are even inclined towards greater civic engagement. And yes, […]

Breakfast Hack – Fast breakTammy McLeodBreakfast DelightIMG_0460IMG_0462

We’re humming along. Homework done – check. Soccer gear cleaned and packed up – check. Work reading folder – check. Lunches or lunch money – check. Ballet bag packed – check. Gas in the car – check. And we’re off, except that while the car’s tank is fueled, ours might not be. Truly, it is […]
