“Excuse my messy house.”  — Said no straight man ever. The main entrance to my house is the garage. We have a front door, but everyone comes in through the garage and mud room. The dump rooms.  Dog hair and mud and sometimes a baby calf hanging out. Another New Year’s intention of mine.  I […]

Hello 2017!   I woke up happy this morning. That’s a good sign.     First day of the New Year….. Me ….. Happy!  YAY!   Then I’ve had this old song stuck in my head all day…. “I believe in miracles Where you from You sexy thing, you sexy thing you I believe in miracles […]

 Food I love food.  I love eating food. I love looking at good food. I love everything fresh and healthy. But I don’t like the preparation and clean up phase.  It seems like such a waste of time. ‘Time’ being my most precious commodity these days.  I’ve gone through phases in my life where I […]

Yesterday was the winter solstice.  I consider this to be the first day of the new year.  I think the calendar makers screwed up. They were most assuredly men. Everything had to come out mathematically correct.  The days start getting longer today. Everything changes.  Today should be January 1st.  Wouldn’t that be nice if we […]

Hey Christmas!  Yes, You. I’m just not that into you anymore. So why are you making me feel so guilty? Why are you making me feel so ….. anti-American?  Why do you look at me like I’m a failure as a woman?  You think I’m lazy?  Why are you making me feel like I’m not […]

Yesterday I performed the dreaded task of re-applying for health insurance for 2017. I was notified by Blue Cross Blue Shield and HealthCare.gov that they were not offering my plan for 2017 and I needed to update my application and choose a new plan.  I received that notice in September.  The deadline is tomorrow.  Do […]

    Hi friends.  Since before the election I felt myself slipping deep into anger, despair, depression and a general heaviness. Literally, the weight of the world was on my neck, my shoulders, hips, knees and feet. I know you know what that feels like. It hurts. It hurts physically and spiritually. I had to […]

While taking my spiritual fast for two weeks in December I had a lot of time to think. A lot of time to think about turning 60 this year. I think about it all the time. Not in a morbid way. In a way like this…. “Wow. I’m turning 60. I can’t believe it. I […]

Over the holidays I did a Spiritual Fast for two weeks. Not a food fast,  but a Facebook fast. Food would have been easier. I was increasingly aware that my focus in life had become all forms of social media. Facebook mostly. Don’t get me wrong, I really love social media. I love the internet. […]

Everyone has a dream. I’ve had many.   About 7 years ago I started “Cowgirl-Red”. I wasn’t sure where she was going to go.   I set goals. I got coaching. I planned. I blogged. I sewed. I lived my crazy life.  Cowgirl-Red is pretty much just like me. (Actually, she is me.)  She pretty much […]
