The Noble Act of the Dumpster Dive

Think about it, just for a moment. Dumpster diving probably doesn’t conjure up pretty images for most of us. Not for me, either. The other morning, though, I was needing a little self-TLC, feeling tired and a bit lost, so of course I found myself on youtube, looking up videos of Nigerian Dwarf Goats. What […]

Hello, Before I Fade Again

Hello, Before I Fade Again

Okay, maybe that title is a tad bit dramatic, but Hyperbole is my middle name, so…. Besides, it’s not that far from how I feel right now. Actually, at the moment, I’m feeling a little like Wonder Woman. No invisible jet or unbreakable bracelets, but I’ve been enjoying more energy, fewer aches and pains, and a clearer, […]

The Parent Files: Parenthood Bloopers

The Parent Files: Parenthood Bloopers

After my most recent post, Not to Speak, I felt the need to lighten things up quite a bit.  So, today, I’m delving into one of my areas of expertise: parenthood bloopers. Come on, admit it.  If you’re a parent, aunt/uncle, babysitter, etc., you’ve been there.  Haven’t you?  I sure have. Here are some of […]

Not to Speak

Ethereal, Searching for Inspiration 8 Comments

Not to speak ill of anyone, but to speak the truth.  Not to speak out of turn, but to speak out of need. I have a story to tell, for someone.  She’s not a relative and there’s no need to wonder about my friends on Facebook or connections on Twitter; she’s not there.  Nor is […]

Eddie Vedder Once Walked Beside Me, But I’m Over It

Eddie Vedder Once Walked Beside Me, But I’m Over It

The other day, I was on Twitter and a person (to go unnamed) reached out to make a connection.  This was fine, the person was fine, everything was fine.  Except, there was this one little thing I noticed about her profile.  It was this: in her brief intro section, there was a line that said, […]

Hair and Now

Am I the only one who caught an ear worm from that title?  Luther Vandross?  1989?  Here and Now?  Pretty sure it was played during at least one of my proms.  Anyway, I’m showing my age, time to move on…. Today’s post has nothing to do with Mr. Vandross or with music of any kind.  This […]

The Wisdom of Chickens

The Wisdom of Chickens

I love our chickens.  I do.  When we first got them, I expected to like them, but I really have come to love these funny, feathered little girls.  Not only that, they’re far more interesting and intelligent than I ever would have guessed.  Here are some life lessons I’ve learned while watching chickens: Beautiful baby […]

Sunday on the sofa

Sunday on the sofa

It’s Sunday here, April 10th, and the snow(!) from yesterday has melted.  While we wait for spring to return, we’re all doing a little relaxing indoors.  One of my dogs, Tess, a mixed-breed rescue (who was named–by my family–after my main character in My Watcher’s Eyes), seems to have made it into a science.  In […]

Spring is here, no matter what the thermometer says!

Spring is here, no matter what the thermometer says!

It’s April 5th, so what did I wear to run the kids to their dental and orthodontic appointments this morning?  A lightweight cotton shirt, with another lightweight cotton shirt (okay, cardigan) on top.  It’s spring, damn it, and apparently I’m willing to suffer to prove it.  (Didn’t prove anything, by the way, except that I’m […]
