A reprint of my article in the Springville Times. Friday the 13th Bucket List: Spooky Attractions and Ghost Walks October is a month full of warmth and hearth. Cozy wool sweaters come out of the closet. Crockpots start making decadent stews. Houses are decorated with rich tones…

Twitterments

Twitterments. Because not everyone is on Twitter. I find myself saying “it’s only x’o’clock” all the time lately. As in, it’s only 8:39pm o’clock? Really? Today is a finding it hard kind of day to do the daily day things that seem to not matter at…

Peas

Peas, please!

Peas, please! Sorry, not sorry I ended up shelling and eating the entire bowl of peas I picked from our fall garden this afternoon, straight from the pod. So sweet and crunchy. Such a delicious treat! Especially considering what a giant failure most of our garden…

Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico. Dear God. San Juan mayor: ‘I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying’ I can’t even begin to comprehend. How are we talking about kneeling at NFL games, private plane trips for officials, another miserable attempt at health…

Twitterments

Twitterments. Because not everyone is on Twitter. PBS is so uniquely PBS-y. Most days self-care for me means trying not to beat myself up or feel guilty for saying no and knowing my limits. Hardly pampering. Channeling Tony Stark…”I have a plan, write.” Good on Sean…

Unbelievable Dragonhflies

Unbelievable

Unbelievable. While sitting on the porch this morning, drinking my coffee my brain was tumbling over with too many thoughts all at once (as usual.) At one very precise moment, I quieted my mind. And thought one very specific thing…a mantra that came to me recently…

Movie Night Sean Bean

Movie Night (Always Choose Sean Bean)

When HWMMS “allows” me to “choose” the movie we are going to “watch” there’s usually one movie that I want much over the other. Tonight, I hesitated. I’ll explain in a bit. First a little clarification. “Allows” – I have some control over the selection. It’s…
