What are you doing about it?

Posted by & filed under health, my life.

A recent weekend when my mother-in-law was here, I was telling her about the March for Monsanto rally I attended, and my concern with genetically modified food. She asked me, “what are you doing about it?” She told me that Laurel (her daughter) used to ask her that question when she complained about things. “Well,… Read more »

Emotional Me

Posted by & filed under faith, health, my life.

I have been in a whirlwind of emotions lately. First there is the matter of the human race. There are some of us poisoning our world…killing it really…there are some of us trying to make it better, and there are some of us that are going about our business thinking everything is fine and dandy….

Father, Son, Dog

Posted by & filed under my life.

Today Andy and I planned on having a fire. Usually I don’t help out as much with the fires, but I was planning on helping out with this one. Then Alex called and said he was coming home for the weekend. “We’re planning a fire, I told him.” He was on board. (What is it… Read more »

This song was sung on American idol tonight. This is the original duet version with Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. It seemed so appropriate for a time when in the midst of great pain, we are seeing miracles of love. It also echos what I learned earlier in my life. Something I want to share… Read more »

The Boston Marathon I know

Posted by & filed under my life.

When I think of The Boston marathon, I think of my sister-in-law Laurel, and going into Boston to her 8th floor apartment in Kenmore square and watching people approaching the finish line. Sometimes watching from her balcony, sometimes going down to the street for awhile to cheer on the runners. It was nice with the… Read more »

My bucket list

Posted by & filed under my life.

I sure was writing a lot more earlier this year. Now I seem to have gone on a knitting spree. Seriously, there is not enough time in the day to do everything I want to do. And I’m not talking chore type things. Those are always piling up on me. I’m talking about fun, creative… Read more »

I’m in love

Posted by & filed under my life.

Valentine’s day seems to be a good day to make this confession. I just fell in love. With these knitting needles: I just knit most of a scarf on these blunt plastic things: They were the only needles available in size 15 at the craft store. They worked, but it was a struggle sometimes to… Read more »

Let your light shine before men

Posted by & filed under my life.

I met a bright light in the airport today, as I got stranded for the day waiting for my evening flight. He’d been waiting since Friday. Chose not to cut his Disney vacation with his small son short by catching an earlier Thursday flight, as the airline recommended. He was on a standby list and… Read more »

The Song in Your Heart

Posted by & filed under my life.

At the beginning of the year, when Andy and I went on a mini-ski vacation, we walked into a store and I saw this magnet: And my eyes filled up with tears. It was like this magnet was speaking words right to my soul. I bought it. It’s on my refrigerator. Today, I stumbled across… Read more »

Do Not Disturb

Posted by & filed under my life.

There is nothing pressing on the agenda. Sure, lots of things I could be doing. We ran the dogs this morning. So that is done. Now I am sitting on my couch, on the end near the fire in the wood stove, which is roaring away. A candle is lit on the table beside me…. Read more »
