I just had a flipping breakthrough while I was editing what I had written. How wonderful.
I firmly believe that control is an illusion. Life is made up of random chance. If things go as planned it's just because no one and nothing came along to screw them… Read full post »
I received a plaintive request this morning and wanted to share...

I saw the most gorgeous sunrise this morning, though my camera phone being what it is, the pictures I get aren't exactly the colors I see. The colors I see are pastels and mauves. The colors I get are more striking. Trust me, if I had seen these colors taking off… Read full post »
I was too young for the hippie movement, also, but was hearing this music while reading her post and thought I'd share.
I heard a ruckus in the neighbor's back yard, so of course I had to investigate. Right? I grabbed my flashlight and headed on over and met...
So I invited them over for a snack.
One of the girls… Read full post »
Early this morning, I dreamt that I got married to my ex-fiancé. I used to dream about him a… Read full post »
Yes, I got enough signatures that were legal, the petition was filed, and I can now officially campaign for town council! I'm pretty excited. Trepidatious, but excited.
And I realized that I have no freakin' clue what's next! So I go to the website and find this...
I finally got me a table. I am so proud of myself! I have wanted one of these things for years, and finally found the right circumstances to get one.
The bad news is, one of my favorite stores is going out of business, merging with… Read full post »
Another Sunday in Conservativeville. And I am embarking on another step on my journey back to life.
My garden is tootling right along. The potatoes are blooming. All but 8 of the green beans sprouted. The eggplant is blooming- the first blossom fell off so that one was a bust, but… Read full post »
one's for Zuma... combined with the prompt for Weekend
There was a scent on the air. A luscious scent. A scent that contained the meaning of life and all of its mysteries. The wolf inhaled it and let it consume him.
It was the consumer culture. The culture that… Read full post »
New raptors to watch grow up...

Hopefully, I have removed the magic vanishing words this time...

Good news, Puff was 100% better when I got home tonight.
She started out the morning with a bath
and then a nap
From there, she seems to have moved to the sofa and then the bed, which is where I found her. Whew.… Read full post »
The day started with me filled with trepidation. I knew, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that I was making a mistake. A big one. But I knew of no way to back out of it without it costing me some money. And I wouldn't have had a place to live,… Read full post »
Success! The green beans are sprouting!
Fraternal twins? Close enough.
Today's sunrise was pretty cool.
And the peonies, the state flower of Indiana are blooming. I have four patches. A lot of them got hit… Read full post »
Well, one wedding down, the nephew might be getting married but if he does it will be in England, and I realized that my niece really does not consider me important any more. Okay, onwards.
Here is a view of the potatoes from 5 minutes ago.Yes, I got up from my… Read full post »
Tennessee just passed a bill on "gateway sexual activity." I'll let you read the article and write the derisive posts. Have fun!
I have other issues today. PTSD is rearing it's ugly head. I got the official diagnoses of hyper… Read full post »
Disclaimer: I am going to rant because I have to vent my spleen. My niece is getting married Saturday, and it's either get all of this out here, where it's safe, or eat my last roll of Thin Mints, keep all of my spleen inside of me, and possibly erupt at… Read full post »
Tomatoes, bell peppers, beets x 3 rows, lettuce in several varieties, radish, spinach, zucchini, cantalope and 1 mystery plant- either cantalope or cucumber. Added all this to the potatoes, onions, anaheim chilipeppers and eggplant already planted. Still have some space in the middle.

I found a new friend today...
On March 10, I wrote about losing my first cooler to a misunderstanding with my Dad, who gave it to Goodwill. Today, I found this little icecube at the Walgreens in Lebanon, Indiana. Yes, I had seen them before, but the… Read full post »

So many people live with trauma. In fact, I'd guess everyone visits some sort of trauma every day. Someone's alarm didn't go off. Someone's hot water heater crapped out. Someone had a flat tire. Heck, someone broke a nail.
Then there are the bigger… Read full post »
