Happy Memorial Day, Everyone!
Happy Memorial Day, Everyone!
I love asparagus and I become frustrated at the grocery when all I can find are tiny bundles of expensive yellow spears with soggy tips. So I ordered twenty little plants and carefully planted each one, making sure those little […]
Today I perform at the local zoo. This performance marks the first show of 2011…my fourth summer as “Kirsten, Queen of Theatre!” (www.queenoftheatre.com). Seven years ago I admitted to myself that what I really wanted was to be an actress. […]
This made me laugh which is a good thing. My entire family has a silly cold but we know: “A merry heart does good like a medicine. ” Proverbs 17:22. This is my Tylenol Cold and Flu
How we talk around here: “Lydia, can you please go tell the chickens I need three more eggs to make a dozen?” (few minutes later) “Mom, here’s two and I told Red Rhoda we needed one more and she said, […]
I broke my own rule yesterday. If you’ve read my blog “How to Be Happy,” you know that I am very careful about what I allow in my brain. I have a standing rule for myself not to watch the […]
I love how she meanders in….and then rushes out. This one has been circulating the social media routes for awhile, but, if you haven’t seen it (or even if you have), I knew you’d enjoy it. Think of the hungry […]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuPO2OYTiWI I enjoyed this video! I could relate to it on so many levels. I hope it speaks to you, too. First, it is a visual to my thoughts in the blog “How to be Happy”; choosing where my mind […]
This just makes me HAPPY!!! How about you?
I have a friend who is the life of the party and everyone laughs at her stories…yet she is always worried about what people think of her. I have a daughter who is not scared of a thing but chooses […]
Last night I was curled up in bed reading and I heard the little voice, “Go check on the bunnies”. I don’t usually spend time on the bunnies in the evening. They are in an enclosed area and I feed […]
“Let them eat….GREENS!” Today marks Day #1 of garden harvest. What is your favorite fruit, vegetable or herb from your garden? I can’t think of anything that beats a garden-fresh tomato. Have you ever tried sliced garden tomato with a […]
A few weeks ago I started a blog discussion about gardening at “Let’s Garden!” (click here to go there). I hope that your garden is now coming up and flourishing? I would love to hear an update! In my front […]
Morning Flower is simply the best mother cat ever. She has lovingly cared for her four kittens even though she was traumatically taken to our home in the middle of her labor. Then, a few weeks later, I added an […]
I remember when my oldest child was a baby/toddler I would make grand announcements to my friends–“He is sleeping through the night!” “He is potty trained!” “He is a brat!”—only to find out the next day that I was…uh…wrong. Simply […]
Our sweet ferret, Emerald, is dancing with death and I’m sure the music will stop within the hour. I know that allowing so many animals in to our family also means we have to suffer as they suffer: a choice […]
This morning I was trying to think of something insightful to write for you when the phone rang and my friend’s emotional voice blurts out, “Kirsten! Chica died!” Chica was my friend’s much-loved Chihuahua. She had a complicated labor which […]
In My Happy Place (uh…that being my life) I have three actual Happy Places. These are magical spots where (sing that “Cheers” song with me!) everybody knows my name..and they’re always glad I came. I can count on these spots–no […]
One of the best things about my life is the variety of people in it. I am reminded each and every day that not everyone thinks, feels and believes as I do. This became very apparent this morning as I […]
