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 […]

What Color is Chartreuse, Anyway? My Take on the Mandela Effect

What Color is Chartreuse, Anyway? My Take on the Mandela Effect

Just the other day, I wrote a post on aloe vera, in which I mentioned that my “green thumb” was probably more like a chartreuse color. What I didn’t say is I had to check to be sure “chartreuse” was a yellowish-green, rather than a fuschia-ish pink. After doing some inquiring, it seems I’m not the […]

Natural and Noteworthy: Aloe Vera

Natural and Noteworthy: Aloe Vera

My thumb isn’t exactly green, but it has developed a vaguely-greenish tint over the years. It’s maybe a chartreuse by now. (Side question: how many of you think of chartreuse as being a color in the pink-red-purple range, instead of the yellowish-green that it is? I’m genuinely curious, because it seems to be a “thing.” […]

My Favorite Coffee Substitutes

My Favorite Coffee Substitutes

I’d so like to be a “real” grownup and have a love affair with my daily cuppa: Joe, Mud, Brew, Java, Daily Grind, Bean Juice, Brain Juice, Go Juice, Jitter Juice, Battery Acid, Cup of Jolt, Liquid Lightning, Mojo, Tar, and my current favorite, Brewtus. But alas, no. Coffee is just not that into me (see: […]
