I Need You and You Need Me

I came to my desk to write and stopped to stare a moment out the bedroom window this afternoon. I was sipping on a little jar of kombucha. The chimes clanged and clonged with the wind knocking them together. We are probably going to get an early spring and the juniper tree that offers it […]

One Hour Shoes

I like shoes. Why do I like shoes? I have no idea. Why do some dogs like bouncing balls? Yea, I can’t answer that either. I have always liked shoes. Not so much handbags, I like those, but I am content with the bags I have for years as long as they hold up! But, […]

Exploring My Child Side – A Ridiculous Idea

Here is a ridiculous idea. (One of many I drum up) I know dear readers, you are all grown and expect grown up speech and thought from grown up peoples online journals. But, we all need to take a stab of fun imagination to keep our minds pliable and soft. So, here is a little […]

Tales of Cars and Driving Them

I think between My husband and I, we have owned 30+ cars. This count is starting when he was 16. I currently drive a 25 year old land cruiser. I have about three things I want in a car. Working windows aren’t completely necessary, but enjoyable. Its going to be fun to get pulled over by a […]

Passing the Blame with a Dirty Dish Rag

Out of my mouth, many mistakes are produced. In fact I think our mouths are factories for making mistakes! I really do not like making mistakes. I don’t think any of us really do, but some of us, have a harder time with our mouths. I think I don’t like talking as much as some, […]

Tiny Tots, with their eyes all aglow…

  You know the tune well. Christmas. What would you say about this word if you had to sum it up in one sentence? To me, Christmas is about showing love and bringing Joy and hope to others. Its not about me. Its about decorating my house to be a little more magical for my […]

Forget the HAM, let’s have Lasagna!

I think if there was a competition for the States worst communicator complemented by stubbornness, I might be 4th or 5th in the ranking. The Higher winners medals would go to (and I say this lovingly) a few of my immediate family members. I don’t know how many dumb arguments could have been prevented by […]

A Pet Friendly House

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened” -Anatole France My family had pets growing up. I’m not so sure that mom could have done without them. She didn’t have too many animals growing up, I think they had a siamese cat once… She didn’t come from an animal family. […]

Live and Laugh About It

“Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.” ~Bill Cosby I love to Laugh. And I find the silliest, simplest, unnoticeable things funny! Everyone finds something hilarious at some point in their life, […]

Watering Compassion

Compassion is the understanding or empathy for the suffering of others. It is regarded as a fundamental part of human love, and a cornerstone of greater social interconnection and humanism. I have difficulty with compassion sometimes. I think the majority of us humans do. I think there are a lot of reasons we find to […]

Powerless

People can be divided into three groups: Those who make things happen Those who watch things happen Those who wonder what’s happening I think I consider myself to be #2 mostly on this list, and sometimes I am number 1 when I organize mockumentories about missing eggs with my entire family over Thanksgiving and we […]

Putting Kids thru the car wash

I am often listening to my kids chatter as we do errands and go places. I say I “often” listen because, I can’t “always” listen, I have to drive and pay attention to whats going on around us for safety reasons and such. But, I often find something really amusing when I do listen to […]

Doctor Patches

I have come up with a new invention for humans to waste time and money on! There are patches for lots of different types of clubs out there, so how about we have patches for what we have survived thru? Instead of people having to ask about our health or knowledge, it could be right […]

Food Pits

By food pits, I’m referring to my dear children who consume large amounts of food on a daily basis. They don’t always consume large amounts. If they don’t like the taste so much, you end up with a ton of leftovers that they aren’t thrilled about re-heating the next day. which means the adults re-heat […]

Wind Chimes

I love wind chimes. It doesn’t matter if they are hollow pieces of bamboo clinking or strong metal pipes. They are beautiful. They tell me things when I am in the house. I can watch them move or hear them sing and dance. Their only job is to move with the unseen motion of the […]

Northwest

Trapped inside, forced to hide The grey is overwhelming The wet never ends, sun rarely begins and mold has found its heaven Beauty in green, a beautiful scene The rewards of the never ceasing rain The ocean is near, clouds shedding tears, I can taste the salt in the air The beaches are chilly, birds […]

The Incredibles – (at least in our own minds)

I have a magnet that says this: Remember we are a nice normal family. I love that magnet because it speaks truth for all of us! How many of us pretend we have no problems when we are around others? Or how many times do we wonder, is this normal? What is normal anyways? What […]

The Fridge Hold Up

I have always dreaded cleaning out the Fridge. I think I’ve finally figured out why. First of all, I’m always afraid of opening up something in a tupper-wear container and smelling something awful. (Like leaving it in there longer is going to petrify it so you can’t smell it any longer) You kind of just […]
