So much going on in my brain right now! One piece of it all (beyond all of the logistics like paperwork, inspections, getting our house on the market this week and, of course, the financials) that we’re obsessing over is figuring out where the ducks, bees, clothesline and garden will be. While we’re not going to be planting anything, our…

Guest Post: Five Women

When my husband and I married, he shrunk his collection of books by about 80% in order to move across the Pacific, and recently I noticed the majority of his books are by male authors. If you think about it, books written by women are all too often considered “women’s lit” and movies directed by women or written by them…

My front garden making me happy… The second half of May is under way…what a trip how time is flying…hope you all are having a lovely Spring (or Autumn, depending on where you are)… What an interesting story about Andre Leon Talley – for those of you who don’t know, he was the right hand man to Anna Wintour at…

Well, I just went to Next Level Burger for the first time – where one can enjoy a delicious burger and a to-die-for shake that are all plant-based (and not-“Frankenmeaty” at all). Proof positive that it is entirely possible to be, as they proudly say in Oregon, a fat vegan. “As long as we don’t have any kind of representation…

Alright it’s the weekend, the clocks are going forward, I’ve made a big pot of jambalaya to make up for the mostly vegan week I’ve had, the weather is supposed to be sunny and in the LOW 60’s this weekend, meeting with a prospective client this coming week, and my husband says he has a surprise outing for us on…

Stuff that’s been rolling around in my own head this past week… Eggs + Souffles + Science = Awesome. Infertility + Elderly Women + Friendship = The Sisterhood of Grief at All Ages. Art + #MeToo + Sports Illustrated = A Step in the Right Direction. More Guns + Women + Rapists = Jessica Valenti calls out more NRA Bullshit.…

Gee, thanks Dr Google!

So, seriously, I’ve often taken health advice from the internet with a grain of salt, but over the past 5 or 6 years, I’ve learned more from health/medical websites than I have from nearly all of my doctors and naturopaths combined. Here’s a few examples of the shit care we’ve received over the years that often have pushed me to…

Week in Pictures

Oh happy day! The crazy late-winter snow did not stop our manzanita (which we’ve potted up as this baby is definitely coming with us!) from its blossoming. LOVE. And speaking of pretty things, husband surprised me with these 🙂 STOKED! We got four boxes of 24″ square carpet tiles for the basement – no glue required, they just lock together…

Yeah, I got stuff on my mind, y’all…get ready. Billy Graham was a homophobe, a sexist, an anti-Semite, and a fundamentalist religious prick who spoke down to those who dared not embrace his cultish take on spirituality. And now he’s dead. Good fucking riddance. Like HELL was he ‘America’s pastor’. Fuck that shit, that man never spoke for me. Minnie…

Friday Friday Friday! I can’t believe we’re midmonth and after the usual “unseasonably mild” week or two, it’s getting ready to be fucking cold. As in, dammit I got fooled again and had just brought in the ducks’ heated bucket into the garage and now it’s supposed to get into the low 20’s this weekend! D’oh! Anyhoo… So my husband…
