The Shift
Published on Sunday, March 22, 2015 by I have always wanted to help people. But you know how it goes. Kids. Work. Life. I assumed the time would come when all the children are out of the house. As you know, I have begun fostering dogs for an amazing local rescue.   I could write a post on its own about dog fostering and just how hard it can be. And just how rewarding. Sure, it broke my heart to say good...
The Devacurl Haircut: Before, After and Tears
Published on Sunday, March 15, 2015 by Curly haired girls stop other curly haired girls on the street and ask, “What do you use in your hair?” It’s just what we do. All of us have at least $200 worth of hair products shoved under the sink, containing most of their original contents. Hair stylists aren’t trained to cut curly hair, period. Layers, pinking shears, thinning…. It all may work for a w...
What’s On Your Camera Phone?
Published on Thursday, March 12, 2015 by Every once in a while I like to share random pictures I have stored on my iPhone. Nothing can reveal one’s true day to day activities like the pictures on a cell phone. 1.  Long story.  There has always been a competition in our family to purchase my mother the most unique aka UGLY frog. I saw this in the thrift store this month and was oh so tempted.  But my mo...
Will I Be The Good Witch, Or The Bad Witch?
Published on Monday, March 9, 2015 by As many of you know, I have been fighting a sinus, ear and chest infection. That is why I didn't make my post last night.  I just don't feel well. Today I finished my antibiotic and I am still feeling horrible. I thought I might be put on another antibiotic. Instead…. Dun Dun Dunnnnnnnn…… I got the “P” word. PREDNISONE. UGH. The last three times I took ...
The Life and Death of a Giant Snowman
Published on Thursday, March 5, 2015 by My children have the chance to build a snowman about once every two years.  And on the rare occasion we get several inches, all of the guys go out to build a giant snowman. This year with a sinus, ear and chest infection, I stumbled outside to take pictures of the "Building of the Giant Snowman."  I couldn't imagine how they would get the giant heavy snow balls o...
Which Would You Choose?
Published on Sunday, March 1, 2015 by On the way home from a family event this weekend, my middle son challenged us with a thoughtful question. “If you could have the traits of any animal in the world, what animal would it be and why? You would still be you but you could do things the animal does.” I responded, “I would be a bi “AND YOU CAN’T SAY A BIRD SO YOU CAN FLY BECAUSE EVERYONE ...
Winter
Published on Saturday, February 28, 2015 by I missed my Thursday post because I am sick, sick sick.  Sinus, ear and lung infection.  I figured everyone would understand.  I'm in bed trying to stay awake to make this post, surrounded by warm puppies.  Puppies make everything better. When I saw that the February photo challenge was WINTER I thought, "We never get snow... everyone will have great photos of ...
Fog Over The Snow
Published on Sunday, February 22, 2015 by Snow. An unusual occurrence in this area, to say the least. But snow we had. Enough that schools were closed the entire week! Our temperatures dropped to 7 degrees, which was a record once you added the wind chill. I have never been in weather that cold and was actually a little bit excited to experience it. What did I learn? That tires get little icicles sticking ...
Imagines in the Fire
Published on Thursday, February 19, 2015 by My friend Joan recently had her fireplace cleaned and inspected. You know what that means, right? Free warm fire just down the street! I took advantage of the warmth on our recent snow and ice day, dragging my camera along. After taking several pictures of the flames I began to notice figures in several of the pictures. Clear your mind, step back a bit and see if yo...
A Different Perspective
Published on Sunday, February 15, 2015 by Lunch time at work on Friday found me reaching in the fridge to pull out my gluten-free tofu stir fry. In one swift movement I lifted up and tilted the container, spilling a batch of sauce down my lanyard, keys, shirt, pants and shoes. I immediately reeked of menu item number 16. After vigorously rubbing every bit of sauce I could find, I verbalized my disappointme...
Pandora’s Box
Published on Thursday, February 12, 2015 by On February 6, 2015, my mother looked at me and said, “Do you know what today is?” It took me a moment to realize it was the 19th anniversary of my father’s death. I felt that familiar knot begin to form in my stomach. She continued, “So with today being what it is, imagine how I felt when I opened my mailbox and found this.” She held up a post card from...
68 Degrees
Published on Sunday, February 8, 2015 by 68 Degrees. Sunny. February 8. Unbelievable. “Mrs. Mommy Mrs. Mommy it is going to be WARM AND BEAUTIFUL Sunday … can we please please please go hiking somewhere pleassseeeee?” At my daughter’s friend’s request, we head out for a hiking adventure at noon. There is a lake I used to bring my boys to when they were young to catch catfish. Recently, Lake S...
