Mother Nature

I think there is good reason Nature is labeled as “Mother”. You’ve heard the adage that if mother is not happy no one is? Well, Mother Nature IS.NOT.HAPPY. I’m no end of the world bell ringer, but I’m pretty sure we have screwed up royally. The floods in Waverly, NC and Middle Tennessee were fastContinue reading “Mother Nature”

Boorish Restaurant Patrons

I’m on the loud side of the spectrum in my volume. I project well and have been told by many people that when I do public speaking, I am clear and strong. That also means when I laugh in restaurants, I can be too loud so I try really hard to keep my eye onContinue reading “Boorish Restaurant Patrons”

Is Yoga A Religion Or Exercise?

When you say yoga people react differently. The group that uses it as a form of exercise or meditation will tell you that it has nothing to do with their religion. It is simply a modern form of hatha yoga focused on stress relief and physical relaxation. Some Christians will remind you that it stemsContinue reading “Is Yoga A Religion Or Exercise?”

Things That Go Munch In The Night

We have a night thief. I love feeding birds but squirrels are pigs so we invested in a squirrel proof feeder. It worked great. They get frustrated but do not eat anything but the crumbs thrown down by the greedy Nuthatches. I have really enjoyed seeing the myriad of birds flock to our feeder. OurContinue reading “Things That Go Munch In The Night”

Girls’ Getaway To The Beach!

I love my younger sister SO MUCH. She is one of my favorite people. She is an amazing person and I love being around her. She has a demanding career and the pandemic has been very taxing on her.

Couple’s Getaway!

I am still not ready to travel out of state but I have been taking cautious jaunts here and there in my home state where I feel “safe” from COVID and angry people. That really does not leave many places in North Carolina but we have been making do. This past weekend my husband andContinue reading “Couple’s Getaway!”

Independence Day Makes Me Anxious

July 4th is right around the corner. I have watched firework sales tents pop up here and there. I will say, this year there are not as many and I’ve heard whispers that it is hard to get fireworks this year. I, for one, am glad. I know, I know I’m no fun. I’m sorry.Continue reading “Independence Day Makes Me Anxious”

Speaking of weddings

I went to a wedding Saturday. It was for a girl I’ve known through belly dance, for about 10 years. Some weddings really make you wonder why these people are even getting married, because you know it’s not going to work. This wedding was the opposite, where the couple are such a good match, andContinue reading “Speaking of weddings”

Holy COW, It Is Hot!

It has been raining a lot in my neck of the woods. We have had very humid hot days and some unseasonably cool days. My friends in the NC mountains have experienced some wacky weather as well. I am most concerned for my friends in the state of Washington. Some dear friends have a smallContinue reading “Holy COW, It Is Hot!”
