About Me

My photo
Concord, California, United States
I am a sometimes-writer, everyday mama, creative failure and experimental cook. I am interested in living a beautiful life, spending time with my family and making things that I can feel proud of. When I'm by myself I'm usually outside. Don't bother calling because chances are that I didn't bring my cell phone because I couldn't find it. If you see me walking, it's because I lost my keys and if you see me with only one child... I'm probably in big trouble.

Fire Fighers

I was broiling a london broil tonight and forgot to turn my oven vent on.

Suddenly our fire detector began beeping and our house alarm went wild.

I ran to the front door and pressed in our code. Everything stopped. The alarm sounded for less than a minute.

Five minutes later we had a fire truck in front of our house with a whole team of fully outfitted firemen.

At least I know that they respond quickly.
