Enough is Enough

Are you thin enough, smart enough, rich enough? When is enough, enough? Never. Most of us love the autumn because we are back into a routine, the weather is nice and cool, the colors outside are festive and cheerful, and we might even enjoy some fall activities. One of the things I enjoyed as a […]

Growing Out of Ourselves

In my last blog, I had to trim back my very healthy Bougainville because it was infested with the dreaded Virginia Creeper. One of the other things I noticed about it was that it was becoming so gnarly that it was turning into a wound up ball of prickly branches. It appeared to be turning […]

Mind over Matter

So my last post was on weeds and how they have to be fed and left to their own devices to keep coming up and getting in our way. I noticed something else this weekend while out weeding. Some of the healthiest, most vibrant weeds were those which could disguise themselves as one of my […]

Habits as Weeds, (cont’d)

The second part of this ‘Habits as Weeds’ idea is that habits, like weeds, have a life source, and sometimes a little goes a long way. Take, for instance, today. It rained heavily last night, and this morning the weeds in my garden were as perky as ever. I try to get out there at […]

Habits as Weeds…

You can learn a lot from weeding your garden. Today I want to address how habits are like weeds in the garden of the mind. Did you know that your mind has a life? It’s called the ‘Life of the Mind’, and it only yields what you do to cultivate it. Let’s talk about how […]

It’s a ‘Start Over’ or a ReSet! time before the calendar year is entirely up. This is one reason I am personally against a year-round school approach to education. I don’t […]

Starting Somewhere

Do you ever feel overwhelmed with having so much to do with so little time?   I sure do! I have a multitude of interests and commitments, and I also am very much interested in spending time with people, particularly these days when face time seems to be becoming a thing of the past. We […]

“Pick 3, Pick 3!”

In the first Shrek film, one of my favorite scenes is where Lord Farquad is given the choice to pick from three princesses to become his bride. His cerebrally-challenged henchmen encourage him to choose the one (behind ‘door number 3’) who will require the greatest obstacles to be overcome. He concurs and chooses the most […]

Lucy, you’ve got some splainin’ to do…

A couple of weeks ago my husband was working out of town and he asked me to measure the height of the columns we were remodeling on our front porch. So I got one of his measuring tapes (he has a collection), and  while he was on the phone, he told me what to measure, […]
