Kill Da Wabbit
Published on Thursday, March 26, 2015 by You may recall a few of my posts on the Pirate House in our neighborhood. This woman spends a month decorating her yard in a pirate theme for Halloween. My daughter’s friend lives next door to the Pirate House. Sunday I was dropping her off and had to stop the car, put it in reverse and stare. Did I really see what I THINK I saw???? Sure enough, standing before ...
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...
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 ...
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...
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...
Painting the Moon
Published on Thursday, February 5, 2015 by After taking a few days off since the January writing challenge I am ready to get back to my regular posts. I know what you are saying… “What? Katherine, you have regular posts just as often as The Bachelor couples stay together!” I know I know. But Ron has inspired me and I’m finally going to attempt a s-c-h-e-d-u-l-e. Starting tonight my goal is to post ever...
And Then Dirt Flew
Published on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 by Today's writing challenge subject is "Newbies."  This is my favorite so far! They were newbies at this. While those around them raced by with glee, these two found safety near an empty bench. Dirt flew as paws dug in to the earth, propelling them forward in groups of twos and threes. Teeth gnashed with playful bites of air. Ears flew and tails wagged while the newb...
Houseboats and Espressos
Published on Thursday, January 8, 2015 by Today’s Lil Hoo Ha writing challenge subject is “Travel.” When I was young, we traveled. From houseboats on Lake Trinity to camping in Canada, sunning in St. Croix and eating ice cream through Italy. I was fortunate that my parents saved and invested, choosing family adventures over expensive cars and extravagant homes. It makes my heart heavy that I have no...
Just Call Me Bob.  Bob Ross, That Is.
Published on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 by She called me out on it, so I had to do it. I mean, I had promised, after all. “Do you want to go to a Pub Painters event some time?” “Surrrrrreeee!” Then came the text. “November 4th! Here is the painting! Let’s sign up!” Ummmm…. What? Me? Strangers? No kids? Girl night? PAINTING?!!? I CAN’T EVEN DRAW A STRAIGHT LINE! This is how it works. You ch...
