Two weeks after being diagnosed with a severe allergic response to limonene and fragrance mix II, my allergist added “propolis” to the list after a delayed response marker appeared on my back. Shit. Propolis is resin collected by honeybees used to fill crevices and to seal honeycombs. Fucking bee glue. Confused on why I would … More DIY Liars
I am all about gratitude. Every morning after I wake, I whisper “thank you” three times for getting the chance to live another day. Yeah, probably should’ve mentioned that one to my hubby; the first couple of times I started doing that, he thought I was possessed. I feel very fortunate. Every day, I reflect on three things … More Grateful This day is THROUGH
Who cares? I have asked myself that question every single time I have sat down to write a blog post, for almost a year now. Seriously, I have like 12 drafts in WordPress-land that will never see the light of day. I’ve been struggling, friends and fellow bloggers. It’s been brutal. Growing up, and even into … More Who Cares?
I am a very superstitious person. Find a penny heads up, make a wish and pocket it. Tails up, hand it off to someone else to make the wish. Right palm itching means you’re coming into money. A broom falling means company will soon be coming to visit. 11:11, make a wish. Spill salt? Better … More Don’t Forget the Black-Eyed Peas!!
I am an intense person, by nature. The moment immediately after I roll out of bed, shower, and have my first sip of coffee in the morning, I’m like a bullet shot out of a gun. It doesn’t matter whether it is a workday or a weekend, there is always something that I have to … More Slowing Down My Backswing
The hangover from my Mulled-Wine-Cheese-Ball-Bad-Birthday binge was no joke. I guess in my drunken stupor, I took my eldest daughter’s advice from earlier in the night and drew a bath in my garden tub, complete with Epsom Salts to “relax”. Here’s a nice equation for you: Too much wine + cheese balls + magnesium from … More Conquering the Mulled Cheese Ball with MY Perfect Hangover Cure
Religion. Always a touchy subject and I am probably going to piss a lot of people off with this post. For a little background… I have gone back and forth in my mind as long as I can remember regarding my faith and spirituality. I was force fed Catholicism for 17 years of my life. … More Religion, viCariously Speaking…
I haven’t touched on anything personal over the past couple of months, but am slowly warming up to the idea of writing again. To be honest, the break was nice. With the way my mind works, however, having a creative outlet is a must. I can’t promise weekly blog posts from here on out. I … More The Whip and Zucchini Chips
My very first blog award!! I’m not going to lie… this does stroke the ego just a teeny little bit. I have been blogging for… actually, it is exactly four months today! To be noticed by a talented writer such as Aaron from The Confusing Middle feels nothing short of amazing. Thank you Aaron, for the nomination for the Liebster … More Honored…
** I have been attempting to persuade my incredibly talented friend to set up a blog for some time now. He is an amazing poet – his pieces are expressive and thought-provoking and deserve to be read/heard. He made me a deal… If I were to post one of his poems on my blog and he received ‘any … More Fire and Desire
