In honor of the H.O.G. rally this weekend: Bikers Eat Broccoli

There’s a H.O.G rally in town this weekend. I read in the paper that a group rode in last night.  I was sitting on the porch and I didn’t hear a thing. They must have pretty good mufflers. I like motorcycles. I like the brilliant metallic colour of the gas tank and the front fender and …

My children are going to do things differently!

Yesterday, as we all once again sat around the kitchen table my daughter said what I had expected to hear at some point. She said: Remember when you told us that someday we were going to go off on our own and that we probably would want to live our lives differently than the way …

Morning music and prepping for the first wash.

It’s great to have my family back together again under one roof. I heard the sound of the basement door opening and my oldest son groggily saying, “Good Morning, Mom!”  A couple of minutes later, my daughter came down the stairs and brightly said, “Hey, what are you guys doing?” as she pulled up a …

Lying Face Up On The Floor.

Once again I am listening to a song by Incubus. It’s called Aqueous Transmission   I’m just floating along now, drifting softly downriver. It’s after the storm when everything gets kind of calm and peaceful like. I can see some of the damage the storm has caused, I had no idea how much power it could …

Morning Observations

I am hyper alert this morning. My left nostril is plugged up. When I went to bed last night it was my right.  That’s weird!!! My uvula is all gaggy too.  It feels all dangly just dangling there. My tooth-brush ran into it this morning.  I don’t like when that happens. I am a vigorous morning brusher. In my …

Who says you can’t choose your family??

My sister stopped over the other day. She wears flowers in her hair, everyday. In winter, she wears a halo of them around her hat. She rides her bike everywhere; her legs are stronger than any athlete. Her eyes are as blue as …. Well, when I painted her before I had to use a …

What is Heaven?

I dreamed I was in heaven last night; the real heaven. I was in the presence of John Ritter and Kurt Cobain. That’s what a strawberry jelly filled donut will do to you before you go to bed.   I have no idea why I would have dreamed of the two of them. When Kurt …

Starting over and getting back in balance.

I started over yesterday just like I said I would. Isn’t that a great thing. It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done, you can just choose to start over at any time, any place and at any hour of the day. I reread some of my posts in the last month or …

ADD and LMNOP- I think I’ve got it all today.

My plan this morning was to clean  the house and do some gardening. Sounds like a pretty clear plan, right? I got up this morning and wrote my list of what I wanted to do today. I hopped in the car and went to the garden centre to get my chocolate brown mulch. Love that stuff! …

What a difference a day makes or an hour makes or a minute…

Yesterday was not a good post day. I must apologize to anyone who was looking for something inspiring. I probably should have come right back into my admin page and deleted my earlier post but I was too busy eating my cookies. About 5 minutes after I published my post, my husband arrived home with a box …

Slam Dunk, I’m in a Funk!

  I’m in a funk today. Not the good kind of funk where you throw your hands in the air and wave ’em like you just don’t care while singing something from Kool and the Gang. I’m talking about the type of funk where I want to throw my hands in the air and punch someone …

Nifty Shades of Grey.

My husband has an aunt. She wears hats. Bright ones, glittery ones and more recently a bright white one with a sparkling tiara attached. It is complete with feathery trim and flickering lights. She’s the sister of his father who also wears a hat. She used to be a red head. Now she is a …

A Slight Risk of A Storm This Afternoon.

I woke up this morning to a crack of thunder and a bright flashing light just outside my window. Then my bed shook. To say I was a little startled is an understatement. I let out a scream and my mouth guard flew across the room. I stumbled out of bed and kicked around on the …

You and me, together.

    Sometimes after a long hard day, I sit outside on the porch in frustration, in the quiet. I’m not aware of the passing cars as they rumble on the street, I am focused on the day that sped by and my life that is moving just as quickly. A few strands of my hair that is …
