Murrells Inlet

South Carolina has a lot of places to visit that is near water. I’ve been to pretty much every place at one time or another in my life. It’s farther to drive than NC beaches but it has some waterfront property that I can’t find in North Carolina. Murrells Inlet also has tons of seafoodContinue reading “Murrells Inlet”

Earth Day

Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22. When I was a kid I was never specifically told WHY we have an earth day. I know now that in spring of 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day as a way to force the issue of protecting the environment, restoring damage ecosystems and to encourage living aContinue reading “Earth Day”

Trees

When you type trimming the tree the first vision in your head is the Xmas tree being decorated with lights, baubles, tinsel, etc. The second kind of trimming the tree is more dangerous and apparently very expensive. Make sense – I imagine trimming really tall trees would be dangerous. I grew up with a dadContinue reading “Trees”

Little Bit of Nature

We have taken a few walks in the past few days as our temperatures have hit up to 70 degrees Fahrenheit – is that not crazy for February? So here are some photos from our “woods” near the subdivision for those of you still up to your eyeballs in snow. Enjoy.

For me, it’s called Korean New Year because well duh, I’m Korean American. LOL It is also called Asian New Year to clump us all together. ItContinue reading “Korean New Year”

Wolf Moon

Did you know some full moons had names? I didn’t either until a dear friend of mine opened up a bakery and called it Harvest Moon. She had these lovely placards instead of numbers that she would place on tables while the food was being cooked so they could remember what customer got what. IContinue reading “Wolf Moon”

Do Animals Know Their Names?

Obviously human animals know their names. Sometimes, when mom would call out my name I would pretend that I could not “hear” her but I KNEW she was calling me. When I call for my cat, Ivan, he comes but is he coming because he knows IVAN is his name or is he just comingContinue reading “Do Animals Know Their Names?”

We ALMOST Got Another Cat

Yes, you read that right. We’ve been a one cat family for a long time but each of us had a dream about an orange cat or kitten. That made us enjoy telling each other the stories and laughing. Slowly we all started to wonder if it meant we wanted another cat. So we consideredContinue reading “We ALMOST Got Another Cat”

It’s been a while since I posted cat pictures…

I was cleaning the mirror in the spare bedroom, and Don Juan had to help. And then he got distracted by the adorable kitty in the mirror. I have filled up a box with excess blankets, to donate to our local hospitality house. But Spooky has been enjoying them. I hope they will also beContinue reading “It’s been a while since I posted cat pictures…”
