I Meant What I Said

Posted by & filed under my life.

My favorite book from my childhood – I can’t believe the impact it has had on me as an adult – is Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss. Do you know the story? Here’s the Reader’s Digest condensed version: Mazie the lazy bird (don’t you just love Dr. Seuss?) is getting bored sitting on… Read more »

Well, Hello There 2012

Posted by & filed under my life.

Totally blew the Christmas Card thing this year. So this is a New Year’s shout out to all my friends and family – and whomever else happens to stumble across this blog. Last year, I talked my family into doing a themed picture Chrismas card – everyone needed to have a candy cane in the… Read more »

It’s all about your attitude

Posted by & filed under my life.

Well, it’s snowing again. After a 55 degree day last week we’ve plunged back into winter. So, we have two choices. We can either “have a cow”* or we can try to catch snowflakes on our tongues. 🙂 *The expression “have a cow” is said to have originated in the 1950s. The idea is that… Read more »

My inspiration

Posted by & filed under my life, photography.

Well, it’s been a year, and I haven’t done much with this site. I really spent most of last year just “being” with my friend Deb, who was battling cancer. She lost that battle in October, but at one point she told me that if she got better she wanted to be a photographer. We… Read more »

Early morning

Posted by & filed under my life.

It’s early morning and I reluctantly get out of bed.  It’s hard to leave the warmth on these cold winter mornings.  But I do it because I know what I will be feeling soon rivals the warmth of the bed.  It will fill my senses, boost my spirits and, besides that, make my dog very,… Read more »

Church on Sunday

Posted by & filed under faith, my life.

After reading Common Sense and feeling like this world is headed towards a train wreck, I flew home on Sunday with a window seat and no one beside me.  The clouds were absolutely incredible.  There were wispy clouds that looked like layers of cotton candy.  There were cumulus clouds that looked like bunches of cotton… Read more »

This past weekend my brother and his fiancee got married!  It was a wonderful wedding, and I’m so happy for them!  Tennessee was warm, and sunny, and the wedding was outdoors in a gorgeous setting at Rhonda’s mother’s house. I think they are perfect together.  This picture (not taken by me, I was sitting up… Read more »

It’s Usually Delicious….

I love having creamed asparagus on toast for lunch. Must be my English heritage, I’m thinking. However, today was a creamed asparagus on toast disaster. Here’s how it happened: I decided I wanted to make a healthy version which means I substituted walnut oil for butter then I made my roux with flour – white… Read more »

My rolling gate

Posted by & filed under my life.

We fenced in our garden this year.  I’m loving it!  The dogs can no longer run through, and there’s something about a white picket fence that just screams quaint. We had one problem though.  My husband couldn’t figure out how to get the gate to work the traditional way.  The support just wasn’t strong enough. … Read more »
