A Time To March — Empty Nest, Full Life

I was so taken by this post that I felt the need to share it. Many of my readers know how I feel about politics, but I have sadly been silent in the past few months. This post reminds us of another time in our history, that I am afraid some of us have forgotten or have allowed the angry voices to push those memories aside. It is time to stand up, to speak, to be heard. This morning the final verse that I read in Romans 10:1-15 “As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” I think perhaps those who march could be considered to be the ones who bring good news. I hope you enjoy this post.

I’m horrified, shocked, furious about the terrorist attack in Charlottesville this weekend. White Nationalists, whatever the hell that means, marched supposedly to protect the statue of a man who committed treason 150 years ago and then lost a war. How to pick a winner, right? They wore Nazi insignia. They gave the Nazi salute. They […]

On the importance of house plants

Such great ideas that I just had to share this on my site. Thanks!!

This Veggie Life

I have a minor obsession with house plants. I’ve got spider plants, rubber plants, ivy trailing everywhere around my home. I frequently run out of pots to put them in and have to buy more pots; this frees up the smaller pots, and I buy more plants.

Vicious cycle.

But I really do think they improve my day, and there’s lots of evidence to suggest that they improve your health as well. I like seeing greenery indoors, I enjoy watching them grow, and the cat likes to chew the leaves.

So what are the benefits?

  1. Purify the air: plants can absorb harmful toxins from the air, break them down, and release the harmless by products.
  2. Remove carbon dioxide: it has been suggested that plants can remove up to 10% of carbon dioxide from the air. (So’s it’s really concerning when trees are cut down when we have a…

Those Libertarians. They get me every time with their “small government” thinking. They say things that seem to sort of, kind of, make sense. For example, a lot of people who are leaning Libertarian are asking, “If I’m a single man, why should I have to buy health insurance that covers pregnancy and childbirth?” Seems […]

So true, so true!!

Sometimes it’s simple things that speak loudly. Just after looking at a recipe, I heard a POP and knew it was something in the fridge. My imagination did not prepare me.

Buttermilk pancakes reblogged!!

Good morning! We had a leftover partly used quart of buttermilk lurking in the back of the fridge when the family was in for Christmas. Google brought up this recipe from the NY Times–and hooray– we used up that buttermilk! And got a few stacks of really fluffy pancakes in the process. They were yummy- light and […]
