I originally wrote this on 9 August 2008. Thought I'd dust it off and share it with y'all tonight. I had the great joy today of going to the movies. I haven’t been in over two years, so I was very excited and maybe a bit nervous that I pick just the right one to see, as it could be… Continue reading Previews…..the hint of good things to come
Life is confusing. And hard. Especially explaining it to your children. About how life doesn't have to be fair. About how most of the time it's not. And no amount of indignation is going to change that. People make poor choices. Every moment of every day, someone is making a poor choice. A choice that… Continue reading Why Even Bother?
It's just not on my radar. I live in a house of ketchup eaters. Of which I am not one. At all. I grew up with them too. Sister loved ketchup so much she would eat it on everything from eggs to the Friday night fishsticks. (We didn't have them every Friday, but when we… Continue reading Why We Usually Run Out of Ketchup
So this happened this evening. This is what happens when you have an overzealous ice dispenser, a playful puppy, and two littles (and okay, one Mama) to cheer her on. Daddy was the first to call those pieces of ice that scattered when you were trying to fill a cup "ice mice." Try with all your… Continue reading Playing with Ice Cubes and Holy Moments
When I went to bed last night I felt it coming on, and sure enough, when I woke up this morning, the sneaking suspicion that all these sniffles were maybe something other than allergies.....yeah, pretty sure I was right. So rather than go with my old breakfast standby of a handful of dry cereal or… Continue reading The Gift of Grits
Last Tuesday was election day in Macon. There were signs all over for the Mayoral race. Pretty heated I think, with a former mayor running against the current mayor, with several others thrown in to keep things really interesting. And all of this being beside the point, as I don't live or vote in Bibb County. However,… Continue reading Does the Mayor Know About This?
In the midst of tackling Mt. Washmore and using my Psychology degree on a ten week old puppy AND two children--wait, make that three--and doing all the things that Monday brings to be done, I had hopes of doing something out of the ordinary. Like finish a painting that Mess Cat is pretty much convinced I… Continue reading Sometimes a Cigar is More than a Cigar
I just closed the door on a chapter of my life. A very long chapter. The why's and wherefore's really aren't important, but here's what is. I'm a scriptwriter from way back. I like to "write out" how something will go down, who will say what, where they will go, and how all of this… Continue reading Ending a Chapter in My Story
A few days ago, our Princess came in from playing with her first love, Sugar Ray. He is the kitten we took in when he was three weeks old. Something had hurt him badly, but with bottle feedings and good medicine, a great doctor and lots of TLC, he grew to be the massive lovable… Continue reading Hearing Mama’s Voice
So this happened today. Aragog has moved a little further from the house. He is now starting from the corner of the house and tying out with ONE STRAND to the Loropetalum that sits across from the corner of the house in the flowerbed. He is very skilled, and I continue to be amazed with his intricate designs. … Continue reading Bold and Beautiful Things
