Welcome to the (Green) Machine

When’s the last time you experienced real, pure, unadulterated joy? Prior to this past Monday night, I’d have been hard-pressed to answer that question. But something happened to me that night, and it was spectacular. Better than anything I’d experienced in a long, long time. Let me start at the beginning. About six weeks ago,…

The Waiting (is the hardest part)

Oh, my, my. Oh, hell yes. I’ve got to put on my party dress. That’s right — Imma go see Tom Petty this weekend! I first discovered him when I was about eleven years old. He was on a show called Midnight Special, which was hosted by growly DJ Wolfman Jack, and I remember he played…

The Way of Love (Cavaliers 17:6-1)

Love is patient.   Love is kind.   He does not envy, he does not boast, he is not proud.   He does not dishonor others, he is not self-seeking, he is not easily angered, he keeps no record of wrongs.   Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.   He always…

Cinco TV shows you haven’t watched but totally should

I think I’ve mentioned before that I like to watch TV. I’m probably an addict. But I’ve made peace with that fact and even accept it as part of what makes me who I am. Because I watch a lot of TV, I tend to burn through shows at a pretty fast pace. I’m almost always…

Confessions of a smug dog mom

Last week marked the three-year-anniversary of the glorious day that ‘Lil Beezy joined our family. I’ve been spending a lot of time reflecting on that period because we’re carefully weighing our options for adding a second pooch to the family. I like the idea of adding another dog to the mix—it would certainly put an…

What I’m Listening To: Early December Edition

I’m a huge music fan. Some people have even referred to me as a music snob. I’m not, of course, but some of the stuff you’re listening to is really pretty awful. Ha! I kid, I kid! I read something online recently that said that, on average, most people’s listening preferences are firmly entrenched by…

Writerz Blok. I haz it.

Writer’s block is a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work or experiences a creative slowdown. The condition ranges in difficulty from coming up with original ideas to being unable to produce a work for years. (Wikipedia) I haven’t been able to write a single word…

What a long, strange trip it’s been

T-minus seven hours and counting. That’s when you’ll find me sitting on the couch — bowl of popcorn in one hand, glass of wine in the other — devouring the final episode of Stranger Things. And I cannot wait. I haven’t been this excited for an episode of a TV show since they brought Buffy…

#ALLin216

Cheers!

  It’s National Wine Day! I don’t normally make a habit of celebrating unofficial holidays, but this is one that is a must. Seven Fun Facts: Wine drinkers have a 34 percent lower mortality rate than beer or spirits drinkers. Source: a Finnish study of 2,468 men over a 29-year period, published in the Journals…
