TAWANDA! Time to Till!

posted by kjackson

You know what makes me happy? Garden tilling makes me happy. I relish the power of pushing a piece of heavy machinery through hard-packed soil and sod, breaking it up and making it crumbly and black. I yell, “TAWANDA!” in […]

Should living off the grid be illegal?

posted by kjackson

I’m about to step out of my comfort zones: I avoid talking politics and religion because I know such conversations make one’s social circles small. People feel threatened if you disagree with them so then they avoid you. If you […]

posted by kjackson

  So…has it happened yet? Have you looked in your garden and found your first cucumber? Well, if you haven’t, it’s bound to happen soon (well…if you have a garden…and if you planted cucumbers, that is!). I love to grow […]

Endearing Blunders

posted by kjackson

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 […]

Bounty Begins!

“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 […]

Sing It! “I wanna Go Where Everybody Knows My Name…”

posted by kjackson

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 […]

Simply Grateful

posted by kjackson

Shaking out the pastel yard flag and looking closely at the big fluffy white cartoon bunny with gardening tools and carrots, I actually laughed out loud. I was so ridiculously *happy* and over something so simple and silly. Before we […]

Let’s Garden!

posted by kjackson

It’s that time again. Let’s talk gardening! I never had any interest in growing things until a few years ago when I caught the gardening bug. I knew *nothing* and had to do some research to find out how to […]

Turn the Radio On
Recently the kids and I have been listening to an audio book when we're in the car, but, sometimes, between discs, we'll let the radio play. Since we gave up TV years ago...and I don't read the news, either...we can be a little out of the loop. ...

Miracles in the Midst of Sorrow
I've found there is no logic to how I feel in the middle of grief. I've received huge gifts, and--although I'm thankful for them because they assure me I don't have to make a drastic lifestyle change at the same time that our family has been ...

Like a Symphony
Sometimes I actually think :). I like to plan and compare and problem solve. Sometimes I think my way to an answer. Sometimes I make choices based solely on my gut whether the choice seems logical or not. I feel my way to an answer (I use ...

Dancing Thankful
People are always saying how it amazes them how I think, wish, pray for something and then it appears. To me this is a normal way of living so it confuses me when they say such things. I wonder, though, if maybe these little miracles aren't ...
