Instant Puppies, Just Add Water

Instant Puppies, Just Add Water

Turns out I’ve become an instant puppy mom (and, yes, they do need water). Food, too. Plus, lots and lots of newspaper for potty time. I volunteer at a wonderful animal rescue, where dogs and donkeys, peacocks and pigs, egg-layers and an emu named Simon all live on a lovely little farm with a spectacular […]

Just the Pits – Natural Deodorant Options

Are you looking for a deodorant that works well and doesn’t contain potentially harmful ingredients? I know the search, and it can be the pits. (Sorry, had to go there.) Finding a healthy deodorant option doesn’t have to be so difficult, though. Here’s the lowdown on armpit alternatives: Pamper your pits, for the good of you […]

Peace.

Peace.

I’ve come out of hiding because my characters have gone into hiding. 🙂 Not really. Well, maybe … but they’ll come back. They promised. The real reason I stopped by was to speak about that big *thing* we have coming up tomorrow. Yes, love it or hate it, election day is on the horizon. I’d be […]

Embracing Our Inner Witchiness

Embracing Our Inner Witchiness

Have you checked the date lately? Seems like as good a time as any to show our inner witchiness some love. Sound sketchy? Hear me out…pretty please? I’m not talking about anything dark. I’m also not talking about spells or potions, nor am I trying to convert anyone to the religion of Wicca. (I’m not […]

(Please Don’t) Burn the Witch!

(Please Don’t) Burn the Witch!

I joke about my cat being my “familiar,” because she’s usually sprawled across me or curled up by my side, but I’m no witch. This doesn’t stop me from suspecting that, had I been alive during the ages of witch hysteria, I would have been walking around with heart palpitations and some seriously sweaty palms. […]

Cause For Celebration!

Cause For Celebration!

Since I’ve already shared this on my facebook page, I knew I needed to add it here! It’s been a great week, so far, and I’m very grateful! (1) First and foremost, I found out my little, old Nellie (aka sweetest beagle ever), despite her respiratory issues, does not have heart problems! Yay, Nellie Bean! […]

Which Witch?

Which Witch?

Can I make a confession? I kinda sorta love witches. In fact, I’ve loved them ever since I was a kid. Which kind, you might ask? (I hope you do ask, so my title makes sense.) Whether you’ve asked or not, I’ll answer. Not the evil kind. I’m not really a fan of Disney’s animated […]

So, Here’s My Ode to Autumn

So, Here’s My Ode to Autumn

Whenever the seasons change, I’m filled with nostalgia. Half-formed memories tug at my brain, promising to return a forgotten moment from childhood or, more often, to steep me in the sense of infinite possibility, which lit up like fireflies inside me in my younger days (and, sometimes, still does). Today, the fall sunlight carried me […]

Balmy Lips!

Balmy Lips!

It’s downright balmy around here… at least our lips think so! Just in time for the cooler weather, we’re giving our lips a soothing treat. My daughter helped me create some homemade lip balm, full of nourishing oils and all kinds of goodness. Bonus: the girls’ versions has some pretty tints and extra shine, to boot. […]

Grumpy Chickens

Grumpy Chickens

I spent some of the day making a holiday-themed peppermint soap and hanging with my girls–chicken girls, that is. I’m hoping the soap turned out well (*fingers crossed!), but I won’t find out until I unmold it. I did get a chance to edit and upload a couple of chicken videos, though. 🙂 In the […]
