Sun, Sea Glass and Snow
Published on Sunday, March 9, 2014 by Katherine
In all the years I have lived in the Hampton Roads area, I have never experienced anything like it. Last Sunday we were sea glass hunting on our secret beach. We had made it through a huge snow storm just a few weeks before. On this day, Mother Nature had melted the snow and given us...

People driving their cars in to buildings. This has become an epidemic in Hampton Roads. Every few weeks there is a new car vs. building post. Locals are crashing in to restaurants, stores…. and yes, even a car dealership.
At some point I “liked” the local news station WVEC on...

Day 26 of the WWFC writing challenge gives us the subject, “Naked and Lost.”

The Dreaded Social Media
Published on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 by Katherine
Although I have a Twitter account, I don’t consider it very important. I created it when I had multiple websites and used it as a marketing tool. Today, when I look through all those I follow I see nothing but advertisements.
Is it me, or did there used to be more “real person” ...
It Started With An Upset Stomach
Published on Monday, February 24, 2014 by Katherine
It started Saturday after lunch. My stomach began to hurt a bit. By dinner time my stomach was burning and I had no appetite. I chalked it up to gastroparesis. Until I woke at 1 in the morning with my stomach churning.
It came in waves for 24 hours. The pain in my joints was u...

And Her Name Was…

She hid in the shadows, waiting to strike.
She kept my life calm, until she yelled, “Psych!”
Out came the babies and life took a turn.
She laughed knowing I had no money to burn.
Viruses, barfing and spreading disease,
Boogers and farting between asthma wheeze.
People Food, Right?

You may recall my post about cooking up a batch of chicken feet. The snipping of the claws. The volcano of oil. The first bite. Tastes like chicken!
Imagine my surprise this weekend at coming across the very thing I cooked and ate two months before. However, I wasn't in a fancy ...
