Rabbit Confessional

UPDATE: I started this post in late April and have since made peace with my rabbit neighbors. ‘Martha’ (a Mom rabbit, distinguishable by an odd ear issue) lives in our yard and there are a variety of baby and teenage bunnies who ramble around eating various grasses and weeds (thank you!) The newly planted rockContinue reading “Rabbit Confessional”

Blogging Relationships as Preventive Medicine…

Curious? Well, it has to do with my connection to ‘expat blogger’, who writes  Oh My God My Wife is German. In a recent post he wrote about visiting the Portland, OR kitchen store, Kitchen Kaboodle (http://ohgodmywifeisgerman.com/2014/03/10/my-german-wifes-first-encounter-with-kitchen-kaboodle-in-portland-oregon/). I checked out the website and saw this cool tool for avocados (and ordered one- the rest ofContinue reading “Blogging Relationships as Preventive Medicine…”

Minnesota Driver’s License Renewal and the Cat Toy

The four-year ritual is upon me, renewal of my Minnesota state driver’s license. I turn a whopping 56 in February (but don’t feel, or act, a day over… well– it’s all relative, I suppose :-)). As I suited up (long underwear, scarves, double mittens) and went to jam my foot in my right insulated boot,Continue reading “Minnesota Driver’s License Renewal and the Cat Toy”

With the backyard thermometer reading -20 (Fahrenheit), I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to visit The North Pole – restaurant, that is, in Newport, MN, a few miles outside of St. Paul. Mary North andContinue reading “Breakfast at The North Pole”

“About” Page: Revisited

My first post on WordPress was October 18, 2012. It didn’t get views, but the second was the first of many photo challenges and introduced me to many of you! Since that time I have tried many themes and ideas, sticking primarily with the notion of developing skills in photography. The cats, Dylan and Bagheera,Continue reading ““About” Page: Revisited”

Avatars…and a Poll!

Do the avatars we choose suggest something about us?  What if someone interprets an avatar as a negative symbol; in this case a cat’s eye? I just changed my avatar in solidarity with someone who was asked to change theirs… (You will recognize the model from a post I did on Feline Rescue. With theContinue reading “Avatars…and a Poll!”

Finding meaningful work

When one reaches a certain age, some of us like to test the boundaries. For me it meant leaving a structured environment to reacquaint myself with activities about which I felt passion as a teenager and twenty-something: photography and writing. It is now nearly a year since I took the leap and I have stumbledContinue reading “Finding meaningful work”
