Touched by kindness and generosity

I couldn't sleep yet again last night, so I did what I always do, I started poking around the Internet using my phone. Clicking around Facebook, I was compelled to click the gofundme.com campaign created by my cousin, Cris. What I saw there made me cry.  Two days ago, … more

Let's Get Dirty

A week’s haul

We went camping last week and before we left, I went out to the garden to pick whatever was ready. This is what I got. In addition to the green beans which are clearly visible in the plastic bag, I also had Swiss chard, kale, basil, rosemary and ground cherries in the other plastic bags. I … more

My Striped Dress

Today I'm wearing one of my favorite dresses.  It's a simple long dress with short sleeves.  It's gray with black stripes.  Best of all, it cost me a grand total of $8 at Ross, Dress for Less.  I like Ross.  I have to be in a mood to shop there though … more

The Outdoor Junkie

A Stay at the Milky Way Motel

I didn't think it was going to happen this summer, as weather scuppered one trip and running plans and busy schedules took care of most weekends. But the night after the Power of Four 22k Trail Race, which I rather surprisingly and incredibly won (!), I decided I had enough of … more
