Coming to Chicago

It’s quite last minute, actually as of yesterday, I am coming to Chicago next week for the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training. I’m not really sure that I will have any free time, but if I do, where should I go and what should I do? What are the iconic and the off-beaten things that … read more

The Swan Princess and the Owl

A couple of months ago I told you about the pink flamingo challenge. Well, the deadline of July 19th is fast approaching, so I got down to work the other night. I’m still trying to work out how to make the one look like owls–I’m not a fan of flamingos and you all know I … read more

True Love Always Wins

Today marks the day that same sex couples can obtain a marriage license in my state. I was happy to be able to join in the celebration for the very first couple to take advantage of that new found freedom. I hope we, myself and about 100 other assembled people, helped to make their day … read more

I have no idea what any of these pretties are, but here are some mushroom pics I’ve been meaning to share for some time. They are from a walk in the woods the mister and I took (a long time ago) on a hot and humid day during which we must have come across about … read more

Inspiration at Shop Terrain

Yesterday, I went to Terrain with one of my friends. It’s been a busy and emotional couple of months for me–what with Grandmom passing away and Indie Fixx Jr. graduating college and moving out–and I needed a girls’ day out. Lucky for me, I have a good friend who remembered I wanted to visit Terrain … read more

Leaving the nest

Over the weekend my daughter graduated from college and moved out of the house–all on the same day! To say that this weekend was stressful is a major understatement. There was the graduation ceremony, the party and then the packing up and moving out. I’m wiped, both physically and emotionally. Needless to say, I am … read more
