Busy Baking and Making Lists

In Ireland, you go to someone’s house, and she asks you if you want a cup of tea. You say no, thank you, you’re really just fine. She asks if you’re sure. You say of course you’re sure, really, you don’t need a thing. Except they pronounce it ting. You don’t need a ting. Well, she says then, […]

The Mother, The Daughter and The Fire Alarm

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace […]

Ah, Romance!

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. Mignon McLaughlin Hey, Lovelies. It’s our 21st Wedding Anniversary today. I wouldn’t have remembered, except that Google reminded me. We almost never remember. Ben forgets, I forget, and usually when we remember, months have gone by. Sometimes, years have gone by. […]

Back In Lockdown

Another way to be prepared is to think negatively. Yes, I’m a great optimist. but, when trying to make a decision, I often think of the worst case scenario. I call it ‘the eaten by wolves factor.’ If I do something, what’s the most terrible thing that could happen? Would I be eaten by wolves? […]

Watching It All Burn

Adults keep saying we owe it to the young people, to give them hope, but I don’t want your hope.  I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. I want you to act. I want you to act as you […]

Manifesting Magic And Baked Goods

There’s Something Wrong With Your Husband

Don’t Wait For Someone Else To Meet Your Needs

How To Own and Meet Your Own Needs

“From what I’ve seen, it isn’t so much the act of asking that paralyzes us–it’s what lies beneath: the fear of being vulnerable, the fear of rejection, the fear of looking needy or weak.

When Friends And Lovers Fall Away…

“Friendship plants itself as a small unobtrusive seed; over time, it grows thick roots that wrap around your heart.

Ordinary Luxuries

“Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is the way of foolishness.
