My Weekly Intentions 2/17/20

Hi everyone! I hope your week was fulfilling and more productive than mine (if productive was what you were aiming for). My week was a bit emotional and taxing. I had every intention (of course) of meeting all of my last week's intentions, however some were left still holding to the list... I finished reading… Continue reading My Weekly Intentions 2/17/20

This Week's Intentions 2/10/20

Such a simple concept, yet so true: that which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.- Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain It's been a while!… Continue reading This Week's Intentions 2/10/20

7 Ways to Bring Freshness into Your Daily Routine

"You often feel tired, not because you've done too much, but because you've done too little of what sparks a light in you." - - Alexander Den Heijer Dinnertime is always an interesting one in our house.

A Puget Sound Surprise

(Inspired by Susannah Conway's #augustbreak2019) Human. What does that mean?  I think it means a lot more than just skin and bones, minds and development, socialization and communication. Because when you think of it, many other species have those characteristics too.  So what does "human" mean?  For me, it’s a feeling. A sense of being.… Continue reading A Puget Sound Surprise

My Lists

April Reading 2019

I know I said I'd start posting my reading list monthly... but here we are at the end of March and I have yet to post for this month. I'm a bit sad to say this month has been a bit of a wash. At the beginning of the month, I caught an awful bronchial… Continue reading April Reading 2019

Copycat Chicken and Rice Soup

This is THE best chicken and rice soup recipe I've ever made. It's supposed to be the copycat to Panera Bread's... but honestly I think it's better! I double it - and have plenty to feed a family of 5 and still have loads left over to bag and freeze. (It reheats very well for… Continue reading Copycat Chicken and Rice Soup

An Overberg Odyssey

There are train tracks that start in the Port of Cape Town and go all the way up and around mountains to the Elgin Railway Market. This enchanting ride along the Ceres Railway was one of our outings during my visit to South Africa this past holiday. Opened in 2018, the market resides in the… Continue reading An Overberg Odyssey
