Greens — Glorious, Overabundant Greens!

Great as leafy greens are, there are times when they can be overwhelming. If you buy your greens in those neat, manageable bundles at the supermarket or natural foods store, no problem. Those can be used up in a flash. But if you belong to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm, grow greens in your own garden, or become overly zealous at the farmer’s market, you might occasionally find yourself with too much of a good thing....more
I love broccoli.  The pesto sounds really good and so does the soup.  yum.more

Yes, I think I would miss the freedom of being able to do whatever we want.  It's just nice to ...more

Letting Kids Climb a Tree Is Not a Crime

I missed my kids a lot this weekend. It’s rare that I leave them for a few hours so it’s incredibly rare to find me leaving for a few days. My momma heart ached being so far away, so feeling them in my arms could not come soon enough today....more
A well written story.  I would have told her right where to go.  People are just rude and mean ...more

Do You Have Trouble Proofreading Your Own Blog?

My trade off, which as I get older, I find just as upsetting as my kindergarten teachers ridicule is the fact I struggle a great deal with proofreading. I have trained my brain to "see" what my eyes do not see. Somewhere, unconsciously, I have trained myself to compensate for what my eyes do not see properly and my brain interprets correctly for me. As a blogger the difficultly of proofreading is an incredible challenge. None more evident than when I handed out my business card for my blog and found out there was minor typo on it! ...more
I love that usually a typo shows up in red letters and you can right click and fix it.  Makes it ...more

Ten To Dos in August 2012

Here I am in the hotel at BlogHer 12 wondering what in the heck I might actually be able to get done this month. Probably not much... but here's what I'm going to try and do: 1) Order birthday gifts for a zillion peoples. 2) Book a hotel (or 2?) for our trip to Philly. 3) Move RJ into Prince J's old bedroom. 4) Blog about something fun? Funny? Weird? 5) Take TW on a date? For her birthday? Or just for fun? Maybe? 6) Get some work done on JMP's Christmas stocking. 7) Call my dad. ...more

Hey Momtographers! Just Take That Photo!

"Tommy! Look at mommy's camera and smile! No, Tommy, look here. At the lens. Right HERE. TOMMY! TOOOOOOMMMMMMMMY!" I know you've said it. I've said. I said it yesterday. But Veronica Armstrong wants you to stop interfering in your kids lives and just take the picture. Really. You get better results that way -- and I remember that only after I realize I sound like a moron trying to get my youngest to look at the camera. Go take a look at her beautiful photos if you need proof. ...more
I've photographed my kids so many times and have about 90 albums from when they were ...more
