I live in southern New Hampshire with my husband, 2 year old son and 4 year old bulldog. I'm trying to find my way while doing the stay at home mom thing..

I like cooking, wine and reading. I'm always on the look out for new recipes and books to read.
This is why I can’t go back to work. I don’t stay home so that I can take care of a two year old, I stay home so that I can take care of a 35 year old man who can’t even keep track of his pants.

This is why I can’t go back to work. I don’t stay home so that I can take care of a two year old, I stay home so that I can take care of a 35 year old man who can’t even keep track of his pants.

Seasons According to the state of Massachusetts.

Sir Patrick Stewart on His First-Ever Slice of Pizza: ‘My Fiancée and I Were a Little Hung-over’

The world was fascinated and confused yesterday when British transplant Sir Patrick Stewart tweeted a photo of himself eating his first slice of pizza in his 72 years of existence. In addition to this blog, the story made headlines at the Daily News, the Today show, Fox News, The Hollywood Reporter, USA Today, and countless other outlets. And everyone who wrote about it had the same question: How is this possible? 
So, I get that you’ve had pizza before, just not a slice of pizza …That’s correct. People misunderstood. There was a school of thought that I had eaten my first pizza, but of course how could that possibly be true? I would have had to have stayed locked up in a cellar. But nevertheless, this was my first slice of pizza, which I was only eating because my fiancée and I were a little hung-over yesterday morning and she said what we need is pizza and a soothing drink — and she was right. It solved the problem. But, in fact, it was my first slice, and when it was brought over to me, my first comment was “There’s no knife and fork.” Of course, I was mocked for thinking that I could eat a pizza slice with a knife and fork. 

Of course. Especially in a Brooklyn pizza restaurant. And so then I was instructed — because I was getting myself into a real mess — to do the fold, the classic New York fold technique, which we illustrated in the photograph. And, in fact, it proved effective. It kept me clean and unblemished. 


It was a good technique for a first-timer.Oh, well, thank you very much; that’s kind of you. But pizza was at one time a novelty in my life, and I’ll give you an instance. My brother and I, when we were small, we would listen to a BBC Radio program every morning called “Children’s Choice.” And they played records suitable for kids to listen to. My brother and I listened to this seriously — we learned all the lyrics to all the songs, and we sang along. And one of them was a Dean Martin hit called “Amore.” And the song began, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie.” Well, my brother and I had never seen a pizza, didn’t know what a pizza was; we had never heard the word before, so it made no sense to us. So I thought that what Dean Martin was actually singing was “When the moon hits your eye like a big piece of pie.” So for years, whenever I was singing along, I would sing those words, until one day somebody said, “What are you singing?” And I said, “A big piece of pie.” And he said, “Idiot, it’s pizza pie.” Because I was actually in my twenties before I saw a pizza. I know that will sound bizarre to you, but I grew up in a small community in northern England. 

Can you believe all the attention this has gotten?I’m astonished. You know, we thought it was a cute picture. I like doing these things that are kind of unexpected, as far as I’m concerned, and things that have a little bit of a surprise element to them. But we never anticipated what has happened. I just did an interview with BBC, the main evening news program. And it’s been years since I’ve talked to them. And it’s all, you know, about a pizza slice.

April 2nd. Feels like a good day to take down the remainder of the Christmas decorations. 

(Note the snow. This thing has been frozen to the ground for months, so I couldn’t have taken it down much sooner than this if I wanted to.)
