I could hear the noise of a cat rummaging… They’re all rummagers but I immediately thought of Shads. He likes to pretend that butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth, but we know better…. He tends to take things and run off and we find them later without even realizing they’re missing, a bag of homemade…

Hubs and I listen to morning prayers sometimes instead of reading the Daily Office on our phones. This morning I took this brilliant embodiment of my cats’ individual re-action to the chanted and said scriptural offerings playing on my iPad, Perfectly named The Cradle of Prayer, It brings soulful comfort to all who hear!

We were recommended two rock climbing films by our bird trainer and rock climber son Simon. We went to see The Dawn Wall at a fancy theatre in Plano. Hubs and I don’t go to fancy theatres often. Simon warned us that the tickets wouldn’t cost our usual $4 but we went anyway armed with…

Hubs and I took a break from Footlights to celebrate his return to walking without a stick after knee replacement surgery. Shads had a mind to join us, but he really doesn’t think much of traveling in a car. The little hill country town of Fredericksburg was bustling in preparation for October Fest the following…

Rain has been falling steadily for weeks. Starting in August it came as a wake up call to the grasses who had hunkered down to hibernate in a yellow wash of dormancy. Suddenly the lawn mowers and tractors were pressed into service again as the grass turned green overnight and tricked us into thoughts of…

I was raised in a convent from the age of 12-18½. Living with an order of nuns taught me that they turned to God for everything, The promise of a fine day for the Bring and Buy, healing for a sprained ankle after hockey practice, peace for the agonized soul. I was envious of their unshakeable faith…

The re-cycling in my neck of the woods has become next to impossible…we have reports that the same trash truck picks up trash one day and items for re-cycle the next and they both end up at the same dump. Not good. Some recycling centers have closed because trash was also being deposited in the…

For me, saying I follow Jesus is a conscious thought. As He is not currently walking the earth in human form, I literally do not drop everything I’m doing to drag along behind Him, Or mumble something about checking the bread in the oven, “I’ll be there directly…” Or ask to finish drinking coffee with…

So much to see after a week of rain at Footlights… Too many inches to keep track of the aftermath of stormy weather somewhere. Paper soft mushrooms cluster in the grasses, another fungi, only this one rock hard on the side of a tree, complete with Sophie’s Snail. Blooming below the fungi ledge, mini-replicas burst…

Daughts teaches dance at a Performing Arts pre-school. One morning they were anticipating snack and she said, “I’m so hungry I could eat a horse…” the children made a face and started calling out their own versions of the saying, “…I could eat a pot of spaghetti… “…I could eat a loaf of bread… “…I…
