Two Years…A Whole New Life

Two Years…A Whole New Life

For two years I have been passing by a little reminder on my iphone calendar every Saturday night. “Blog.” I notice it every week, and with a slight sinking feeling, think, “oh, I’ll get to that next week.” For TWO years. I hadn’t realized it was two…I thought it was only one. Oh boy. Two … Continue reading

Meditative Monday

“Be Still” These are the words my friend opened with today in her ’30 Days for Peace’ Facebook group. She asked us to take just five minutes, breathe…and be still. As I read them this morning, I thought, “okay, no problem, I can find five minutes.” It is now 7:32pm and instead of being still, … Continue reading

So Much to be Thankful For

On this day of Thanksgiving, I have, even more than usual, been thinking about all I am grateful for. I feel blessed, surrounded by supportive family & loving friends. I hope your Thanksgiving has been filled with as much happiness, relaxation, & positive vibes as mine! Blessings to you all. Enjoy your leftovers!

Meditative Monday

Savor. They are calling for snow tonight. Not much, but enough to remind me of the rapid approach of winter. With my son’s first birthday behind him, the celebration with family too brief, and the swift movement to colder days, I simply wish to savor as much as possible. To remember that this beautiful life … Continue reading

Fall Fever

Fall Fever

I may get spring fever…I can’t really recall. But, I do know that fall motivates me like no other time of the year. I’m cleaning, organizing, taking walks outside and happily back in my kitchen. Busy, busy, busy. I feel pretty good about yesterday’s accomplishment of baking cookies, bread AND scones. We’re set for the … Continue reading

Little, big things.

Little, big things.

It’s the little things… I’m feeling so excited about Ronan’s new shoes. Here’s why, with one book, one blog, and two websites as part of my explanation: I just finished reading “Living Simply with Children” by Marie Sherlock, a recommendation from Amanda Blake Soule of the blog, Soulemama. It is a simple living lifestyle guide … Continue reading

Meditative Monday

Aaahhhhh…fall. I’m so glad you’re here. There is something I L-O-V-E about fall. Maybe it’s the crisp mornings, the slanting of the sunlight, the time to start making soups and canning veggies from our garden. Or perhaps it is the changing of the leaves, or the scarves, boots and sweaters that can re-enter my wardrobe. … Continue reading

Enjoying the Past in my Future

Connected with, and independent, of my post from Monday, I find myself drawn more and more to the traditions of the past. And it’s not just me. Is this what 30-year-olds do? Is this particular to my generation looking for deeper meaning than we’ve been accustomed to on TV? Knitting, canning, growing our own food, … Continue reading

Meditative Monday

Sometimes I feel I have nothing to write in here, and other moments, like today, I feel I have too much to cover…so many things to catch you up on; reasons I’ve been MIA, thoughts and ruminations since last I posted about my abundant squash, but perhaps it’s best I just dip my toe back … Continue reading

Squash Overflow

Squash Overflow

I’m a novice gardener (“let’s plant it and see what happens…even if the envelope says to plant it two months ago”) and and exploring cook. I stick mostly with vegetables, sides and baked things. Joe handles most protein. As I learn more and more about food, and healthy choices for my family, I have two … Continue reading
