Go on, you know you want to. Just pick up a musical instrument and play it. If you don’t have an instrument, just sing. Or beatbox. Don’t worry if it’s not good enough for anyone else to hear. Just sing. Sing a song.
Take a walk
Spring is just around the corner. The snow and ice is melting. The sun is shining brighter. This past weekend we took a 2-mile walk to the village and back. It was great to get some exercise, fresh air, sun and sightseeing at Camden Village. Come along with us.
Duck Tape Gift Ribbon Tutorial
My 9 year old daughter is a duck tape artist! Here she is demonstrating how to make homemade gift ribbons using duck tape. Top off your Christmas presents with one of these babies. Mama loves them!
Zapping an Earache Away
We’ve had a really fun weekend with friends, carving pumpkins and roasting marshmallows on a fire outdoors. Then suddenly last night my daughter woke up crying and clutching her ear. My first response is to set her up with a Hulda Clark Zapper. She zapped, holding it close to her ear and under her jaw. […]
Hug a Tree

Happy Mothers Day!

She has natural copper highlights in her hair when the sun hits it. She wanted more of that red to come out. Tonight she showed me a YouTube […]
My Shade Garden is coming along nicely. Most of it, at least. I planted early spring plants such as peas, sugar snap peas, broccoli, lettuce, radishes and beets on February 16 and 17. Remember those Sugar Snap Peas I got from Botanical Interests that I planted a while back? Here they are now! Aren’t they […]
The Adventures of Cosmo
Look at my sweet little dog whispering secrets to my daughter. Cosmo is the best dog ever. Very mellow around kids, lets my daughter dress him up, follows basic commands like sit, stay, drop it, does a lot of fun tricks like roll over, high-five, jump through hoop, the works! But. Cosmo is a rat […]
My Daughter’s Snack Recipe
I don’t remember when my daughter started helping me in the kitchen. Was it at age 3 or was it even younger? I remember her taking initiative making us snacks not even a mother could love. Now that she’s 8 she’s become quite a cook. She can cook her own breakfast eggs. She’s been my […]
