The power of good tunes...

The power of good tunes…

I have always been a music lover, since probably the day I was born.  I have been told that as a little girl, all I wanted to be when I grew up was a Go-Go dancer. Nevermind with the sarcasm, that was before it meant stripper. Seriously. I haven’t got a memory that doesn’t involve music, […]

The happenings in the hood...

The happenings in the hood…

I have been absent once again…sigh. It seems to be just the way it is going with me as of late. It has been a busy summer so far and I don’t see that slowing down much at this point. I promise I will blog too much in the winter months to make up for […]

So you think you can drive???

So you think you can drive???

I have had it. This morning was  the icing on the cake of a long month of people being total assholes that don’t pay attention when they drive. Let me elaborate… People are assholes when they drive. What I mean by that is that no one pays attention or seems to give a shit about what is […]

Sunday Shots...

Sunday Shots…

I have been seriously neglectful in my photo shooting lately, not because I haven’t tried, I just can’t seem to find any shots that thrill me. Here are some of the best of the pile!! Stinky eating grass… The sun setting through the trees… I am sure it was a sad day for someone long […]

A good set of chompers...

A good set of chompers…

I have recently discovered that it is not in my best interest to not go to the dentist for approximately 8 years. I mean I know this sounds like a no brainer, but when you have no dental insurance or extra money, the time just slips away on you and before you know it, you […]

May I introduce to you...

May I introduce to you…

My newest addiction…Belle. A 2010 thing of beauty :) She is lovely and she has a V6…before you start in on me, as I have always been the first one to mouth off and say that there is no point in even owning a Mustang unless it’s a V8, let me just say to you […]

The Journey...

The Journey…

I have just begun the beginning of my fourth week on the Whole30 Program. Here is what I have learned about myself and other people so far… I have incredible will power once I set my mind to something. It’s not that I didn’t know this, I mean I am as stubborn as hell. I […]

The Graduation...

The Graduation…

I did it!! I graduated, again. It felt weird. I felt out of place. I confirmed the fact that no matter what the occasion is, I should never ever, ever have to wear a hat for any reason ever again. I also had my own page in the Program of Events. No lie. That is […]

Homemade Yam Chips...

Homemade Yam Chips…

As you know I have been on the Whole30 Program for the last couple of weeks now. One of the thing I really miss is crunchy treats. Slowly I am finding new delicious food to eat that is good for me as well, this is one of those recipes. It is a little bit time […]

Week One...down.

Week One…down.

And I am alive and feeling pretty great!!! Okay, I suppose I should start from the beginning. I was catching up on my blog reading last week when I came across a post about the Whole30 program on one of the blogs I read. It piqued my curiosity for some reason. Mostly being that I am tired […]

Breaking the silence...

Breaking the silence…

If you read the title and thought, oh sweet…there is something juicy coming. FINALLY… I am probably going to disappoint the hell out of you. Hell…I am disappointed. I mean what is with me these days? I have pondered this many times in the last month or so. I mean I have the fact that […]

Gardening Lesson #1...

Gardening Lesson #1…

I figured it was time for a gardening post. I mean why not, since I haven’t been posting at all, at least when I do I should post something useful right? Well today I have some good advice. I have been brought up vegetable gardening my whole life, I love the feeling of picking something […]

The new kid on the block...

The new kid on the block…

Our house right now, is kind of like attending the first week of school. In that I mean there is a new girl, and she is just trying to fit into the already clicky group. Let me explain a little better. My friend Dee has gone away for a mini vacation, and asked me to […]

Freight trains and hits of acid...

Freight trains and hits of acid…

I think that maybe I have schooled my way off of the internet. And by that I mean that I have no desire to sit on the computer for 14 hours a day. Which is good I suppose, because then I actually have a real life, interacting with people and stuff. Not that you aren’t […]

567 Spam...

567 Spam…

Seriously, that is like 29 pages of spam in my spam catcher. If only it did anyone any good at all. Ever. I have had a spammy kind of day. You know when you can go back through your day, file what you need and throw the rest in the trash? Well a lot of […]

And the end has arrived...

And the end has arrived…

It was inevitable, it is so amazingly amazing, that there nearly are no words to describe how grateful I am for the experience of my life. And by all of that, I mean School. Is. Over. It was impossibly hard, exhausting and life consuming. But worth every second of it. When I first started the […]

Sunday Shots...

Sunday Shots…

On Tuesday of course. I thought I had better drop by and post something, my slacking is immense. But the good news is that I have three finals left at school and then I am done!!! I have exactly three days off after my last exam and then I am back to work, after that […]

The Beach...

The Beach…

She sits with her bare toes in the cool, coarse sand. Closing her eyes she breaths in the fresh ocean air. It’s been a very long time since that peace has been felt, the grounding and connection avoided in the speed of life and living in time. Since childhood it has been part of life, […]

Through the laughter and the tears...

Through the laughter and the tears…

My brother and sister-in-law blessed the world with a Baby Prince yesterday, he is healthy and beautiful…a Wee brother to the Wee prince. As I was gushing over the beautiful pictures they sent me, I started thinking about everything they have yet to live through, having such a young family. The laughter…you know, that baby […]

iTunes...I think I love you...

iTunes…I think I love you…

I have resisted the Apple phenomenon as long as I could, I am possibly one of about 100 people in the Universe that doesn’t own an iPhone, and at this point I don’t see that coming. On that note, I do adore my mini iPad, and once I opened that door, it was like a […]

When blogging flies out the damn window...

When blogging flies out the damn window…

As it will for me, when I have more things to do than three people should ever even try to attempt. Some days I think someone should not only just think about giving me a good swift smack upside the head, but should actually really do it. What is wrong with you people? So let […]

The Pinterest Debate...

The Pinterest Debate…

It has been brought to my attention more than once in the last week, that Pinterest and the copyright conundrum connected to it, is indeed making people uncomfortable. I have talked to people that have actually taken down the boards they have up that don’t contain their own images. Now…once I get past the part […]

The freedom to change...

The freedom to change…

I had a girl day this week…it was good. It was long overdue for me to have some quality girl time, with quality girls :) I had two separate visits with two different friends, but the conversations were so spookily the same, it’s funny how we all find ourselves in the same places in life […]

Sunday Shots...

Sunday Shots…

I had to finish a project for school this week, or mostly finish it, the assignment  involves taking pictures of things that are random and making the alphabet out of them… It’s been fun and I am nearly finished, I will post it when I am…but this week, was an excellent bird shot week. Here […]

Sometimes you have to lose stuff...

Sometimes you have to lose stuff…

I have just recovered from reading break, which was not a break at ALL. It is just a free for all in teacherville, where they conspire to load up the homework to the point that you think you may just have a nervous breakdown during your pretend week off. Well I fooled them. We went […]

The End Of An Era...

The End Of An Era…

As my brother so eloquently posted on facebook today concerning the fact that I have indeed…just sold my 67 Mustang. I did it. I am still a little amazed that I have done it. I can honestly say back in the day, when I first bought her, I never thought the day would come when […]

Out With The Old...

Out With The Old…

And in with the new…right? This week has definitely been a whirlwind for me. There have been many changes in our lives over the last few weeks, some I will share, some I won’t. Just know it is all for the awesome!! At the beginning of the week, something possessed me to relist my Mustang […]

Well I have been totally neglecting my photo challenges as well as Sunday Shots, so tonight I have decided to do both!! First I am posting the selfie challenge… I took this picture when we were woodhunting, back when I had long hair…which I must add, I totally regret cutting off. But that is neither […]
