What a difference a day makes. Since I posted what my kitchen table looked like on Monday, I thought I’d go ahead and show you what it transformed into on Tuesday. Which is exactly why I didn’t post yesterday. (Shoot. One day in and I’m already a day behind.) Mom 2.0 Summit content is taking [...]
Today is the only day of the year that is a command. It also happens to be my mom’s birthday. Coincidence? (Happy Birthday, Mom!) It’s also a really good directive to hear. Sort of the sane person’s ‘Keep Calm and fill in the blank’ (It makes me much more calm when no one is graphic [...]
I know that I said I’d be writing about trapezing today, but I got some sad news this afternoon, and I’m just a little too blue to write about anything as joyful and throwing yourself off a high platform. My mom’s sister passed away today. It wasn’t completely unexpected…she’s 24 years older than my mother, [...]
I missed Black Friday and Small Business Saturday and Somethingwhatever Sunday and now Cyber Monday ends in about five minutes. And I’m still on like Two Weeks Ago Wednesday before Camp Mighty Friday and Thanksgiving Thursday and bloody hell, what day is it? And how the hell did it get to be 5:30 pm? Where [...]
Today’s the day. The time is now. Get out there and vote. Do you know your polling location? I just found mine on Bing Elections …you can find find news and information on where to go…and to follow the results. And play along with us today… When you vote today, send out an Instagram, Tweet & Facebook [...]
We are totally skipping school today. (Sorry, school people, if you’re reading this. We are totally skipping you today.) Because today is the first day of Austin City Limits music festival. And we have a tradition around here: We skip school for the Friday of ACL. It’s a school half day anyway because Austin schools [...]
Pinterest is so full of fun ideas regarding pumpkins, porches and other paraphernalia right now. But in this old house, I’m feeling nostalgic and normal and I’m sticking with what’s worked for like ever. Happy October!
Maybe it’s because of fashion week or the September issue of Vogue, but I’m really having the urge to get rid of all my clothes. But I don’t want to get more clothes or anything…I just want to get rid of things. The stuff is weighing me down, man. And if I haven’t worn it [...]
Because we traveled so much in July and August, we completely missed planting a Fall Garden. But I’m ready for winter. It’s been cleared. Compost has been dumped in. And we’re ready to go. Now I just need to decide what I can grow in the winter. Lettuce, anyone?
My favorite greenhouse in the world is in Martindale, Texas. It’s large. The plants are giant and happy. And the oxygen is everywhere. I can breathe better in this spot than probably any other place in the universe. It’s a place I used to visit with my grandmother. And it’s where I spent my 40th [...]
