make the olive garden's zuppa toscana soup at home. love soup season :) UPDATE: I've never had this soup @ Olive Garden so I didn't really have anything to compare to, but, it sounded good so I gave it a shot. I halved the recipe and used spinach because that is what I had. Baking the sausage is a must! It turned out really good (& spicy!!) and was perfect for a cold, rainy day. by roslyn

I didn't know what to do with an old screen door I had bought for $10, it didn't fit any door so I thought this might work. Turned out pretty good. Spray painted purple, which looks good against a grey/green house. by dolores martinez

Exactly. My friend whom had moved years ago was coming back to town for a visit, and I was extremely excited to see her again. I had arranged to meet up with her, and when I got there I was so super prepared to talk about so many things, but it didn't go as planned.... Over the years she had changed her appearance AND personality, and the conversation was short and awkward. Oh well. by maureen

~Shakespeare. This was a lesson learned painfully, many times over, but *finally* at some point in my late 30s I began to stop fighting myself and let go of some of my attachments to an expected result. Pretty much cleared up a good amount of heartache. So I can say, 'this is what I know is true'. by debbie

I loved my Nintendo DS. While mine was also pink, it certainly didn't look this cute, but I used to play it quite a bit when I was in high school. It was a fun way for me to wind down and relax, and I had a lot of games that required brainpower, so I was learning at the same time. by kaye

Chicken  Dumplings for the crockpot. This was very easy to make and had good flavor. I warmed up a mix of frozen veggies and added it in at the last minute. It was a very heavy meal so I won't make it often but for a once/winter kind of meal, it wasn't half bad by francisca

I adore Billie Piper, and have been wondering if this "Mansfield Park" adaptation was any good. I know the older one is less faithful to the book, but it was so good, I didn't care. Anyone seen the new one? by flossie

FRIDAY AFTERNOONS:This term, my weekly supervisions are on a Friday at 1pm. This means that my week revolves around one hour (or usually two) of intense one-on-one contact time with my supervisor. After a supervision my brain always hurts so much, and I usually feel mentally drained but also weirdly energetic (?). I usually go to the gym straight after supervisions to release energy, but I’ve also found that the time following a supervision is great for organising the week to come. I had a brand new Moleskine delivered today (yay!), so I spent time drawing out a timetable for next week & I’m gradually filling it in. My week may seem quite empty at the moment, but I usually fill each day in as I go through the week, informed with an overall view of what I need to get done by the end of the week. It may seem unorganised to do this, but my degree is quite self-motivated with hardly any contact time or relevant lectures, so organising my days as I go along works for me. Also: some things here happen very last minute, and I wouldn’t like to tightly pack my schedule early on in the week only to have to change it later. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and would hate to scribble stuff out. But I can tell you something: most of that week from 8am-9pm will be filled in with red: WORK TIME. Thank goodness I love my degree. -Sarah by lindsay0

I have just been craving fresh tasting food and flavorful veggies lately, and this has quickly become one of my favorite healthy and delicious meals! Another bonus is they are so easy to make and hardly take any time to cook. by cecelia

Easier said, then done. I have had a hard time containing my emotions for several reasons. I think the biggest point in it all is I am holding onto things again. I just need to learn to manage to let go. It is so hard to do sometimes, because we always want to have it in our hands and control it ourselves. That is not possible with life. Things are not always going to go as we plan them, thats suppose to be the best part -- the surprises, both good an bad. by juliet

It’s bad enough without people ramming Happy Tips at you through facebook... A friend suggested I write something because, surprisingly, I manage to give an outwards impression of having my shit together. I was shocked to hear this, but I see her point. I’m functioning.
