Ever want your own deserted island so that you could...? Why? MAKE one!
Friday, April 23, 2021      4 comments

Here's why. We are surrounded by temptation and distraction. And a deserted island is a simple way of removing those very powerful interruptions to pursuing our goals. Let's face it! We know we humans tend to choose the short term pleasure at ... Read more
Is some politicized pro-gun-toting anti-vaxxer going to show up today when I go get vaccinated?

I'm scared in Boulder, and feeling deeply sad. I don't know HOW to stay safe. I rarely shop at that particular store anymore since moving to the other side of town -- but the Grocery Store!? Even wild animals call a truce at the watering hole. ... Read more
Crying for the USA.
Tuesday, March 23, 2021      4 comments

The USA had a mass killing in Georgia last week. 6 days later (yesterday), a man killed 10 people here in a grocery store I used to shop at frequently. Last time I was there was 15 months ago. That particular grocery chain is the one I most pr... Read more

We are a nation of immigrants -- including the First Peoples! Why, after a thousand centuries, have we not learned TOLERANCE, CONTROL, and to CARE FOR THE EARTH? This beautiful planet, our home(!) alone amongst the coldness of the far-flung... Read more

I'm not a political commentator -- or analyst. But I do wish to acknowledge that I was surprised to be so greatly emotionally affected by (January 7, 2021) Thursday's events in Washington D.C. and horrified by them. For 3 days, I am constantly ... Read more
I saw the Great Conjunction on December 21st!!
Thursday, December 24, 2020      3 comments

It was certainly worth the effort it took to be aware of the time (sunset), drive 5 minutes to a spot where I could actually see it (there were MANY pulled over to the side of the road, waiting!), look to the southwest horizon, and watch the bri... Read more
Have you ever HEARD a STAR FALL?

I'm a big fan of meteor showers -- have been since I was a young girl. My parents let me sleep in the yard on those nights of the year..... It was my intention to go out and watch the Geminid meteor shower (last night was its peak!). But it was... Read more

GET IT; GIVE IT When we first married, my husband and I were appalled to discover how frequently, easily, and deeply we hurt each other, totally accidentally! We wondered at each other what was worse -- to be the person who could hurt a lov... Read more
Thanksgiving Success!
Friday, November 27, 2020      4 comments

It was just 3 of us here to eat a Thanksgiving meal..... I planned WAAAAAY ahead, bought the smallest turkey EVER in my entire 64 y.o. life, and made a bunch of dishes in ADVANCE of Thanksgiving Thursday. I also decided to stretch out the celebr... Read more
WAIT! They do like KALE after all!

I know it doesn't sound like much, but DD and Hubby both grimaced to see kale on the table -- and both ended up eating second and then THIRD helpings! Koshie's Honeyed Kale 1 bunch lacinato kale fresh lime juice (about 3 medium limes) ... Read more
Began as relief and gratitude, turned into a rant, and ends gratefully. My dream floor-plan!
Saturday, November 14, 2020      0 comments

In the little time I've had to relax and unwind between MAJOR crisises, somehow, I got to mentally designing my dream house. Maybe because the homes for sale I see online are only nice if they come in Size Extra-Large. I don't want a huge house,... Read more
Thanksgiving Came Early.

It was DIFFERENT fire that sprang up very close by and very quickly raged out of control. It caught us (and I believe -- everyone!) TOTALLY by surprise since we were all accustomed to smelling and seeing smoke after almost a month of smelling an... Read more
What do you do when Evac Order Says "NOW"? Tale of fleeing a fire.
Sunday, October 25, 2020      10 comments

We'd been smelling smoke for weeks from various far-off fires in Colorado. Some of it very heavy! At 2:30 Saturday 17th, we received a message to immediately evacuate the house due to immediate fire danger. What we didn't know at the time ... Read more
Don't TELL Me You're Sorry!
Wednesday, September 02, 2020      7 comments

SHOW ME! I've taught my children that "I'm sorry" is just 2 words, fairly WORTHLESS without action to "fix what you broke, to return what you took." It isn't hard even to return "time". You took somebody's time? You give it back! You can do a ... Read more
