IT’S STILL SUMMER, RIGHT?!
Published on Monday, August 18, 2014 by Katherine
When we passed this roadside warning, I should have known it was a sign of things to come. After all, everything had been pretty hunky-dory through the summer. Weekends in Corolla. Free BBQ every Saturday. No school lunches, extra evening time and college was but a blip on the future scr...

My addiction. Do I think about them every day? No. But if I see them somewhere, I stop dead in my tracks and remember.
The forgiveness of the shell as you squeeze to reveal the inner contents. The warm juice that trickles down your fingers. And finally, the salty, nutty innards that alw...

Ahhhh baseball. My very favorite sport. I play it all the time, and see it even more. This is why I was thrilled that P.J. chose Baseball as the subject for the July photo challenge.
OK. I cheated. I oh so TOTALLY cheated.
1. The supermoon from our deck, ala baseball!
Rats in Party Hats

Dusty Jr. Poor kitty not only has the name of a cat that “is no longer,” but has been called a boy’s name for several months.
Indeed, DUSTY, as we call HER now, looks just like a feral male cat that several locals fed and took care of for many years in Corolla. At the beginning of...
Kids are Stupid
Published on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 by Katherine
No, seriously. Kids can be really stupid. That includes your kids, my kids, your nieces, nephews or any shorties you happen to know. And it also includes you and me at some point in our lives. Thank goodness we are all here to tell about it.
I am referring to that one time when a child ...
Shaggy Dog Stories
Published on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 by Katherine
My father was a great joke teller. His specialty? Shaggy dog stories.
I thought I had heard most of his jokes. Until last weekend when my mother alluded to one of his jokes that didn’t ring a bell. (Those of you who are well versed in shaggy dog stories will catch that little gem I ju...
Deer Smiles and Super Moons
Published on Sunday, July 13, 2014 by Katherine
Every Sunday while driving away from Corolla I think back on all the adventures we had over a short day and a half. Not once do I take any moment for granted. Here is a bit of this past weekend in pictures.
Now that my kids are old enough to say, “Don’t take my picture!” I am forced...
My Whirlwind Vacation
Published on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 by Katherine
Or should I say… “my hurricane vacation?” Because my family vacation had a hurricane tucked in it. Let me share the following quote:
“The National Hurricane Center said Arthur is the earliest hurricane to hit North Carolina since records began in 1851. The previous record was July...

At least if you are me. Because my hair is STUPID. Course. Curly. Thick. Dry.
For curly haired girls like me, it is ALL ABOUT THE PRODUCT.
Over the last few months I have been on a crusade to find the ultimate product for “3B” hair. Nothing will tame it. Nothing will defr...
How NOT to keep your Job at McDonal...
Published on Tuesday, June 17, 2014 by Katherine
Leaving Corolla after two trips to the beach had my daughter and I parched. I treated myself to a skinny Oprah iced chai, while she was craving a “coke no ice.” It was the weekend, so why not?
The only place nearby with soda was McDonalds. I don’t think I have been to a McDonald�...

Sometimes the innocent find themselves victims of a crime in the most unexpected of places. In the very places where they expect the most safety… the most privacy. One minute they are going about their business and the next…..? Victims of a tragic and horrific crime.
Yesterday I beg...

In the last month or so, I have spent weeks on intensive spring cleaning, had guests stay at my house, lost my trusty van, rode the light rail to work, finally got my van back, was dissed by extended "family", spent countless hours helping with end of ...
