TheBrains Are Looking Around
Tuesday, June 22, 2021      11 comments

I have always intended to move TheBrains and their wisdom to another venue and I've copied most of their blogs onto files ON MY OWN COMPUTER! There are an awful lot of them. ... Read more

A Very Special Anniversary
Sunday, June 13, 2021      21 comments

Around here, June 12 is called Chesituxent Day. Chesituxent is the name of our farm - it was the Powhatan name for Farmer's Hall Creek, the northern boarder of the tract of land from which our farm was carved. And June 12 is the day we moved dow... Read more
Let's Go On A Mountain Laurel Hunt
Sunday, May 23, 2021      19 comments

I have spent the past few days putting together a slideshow of a walk through the East Wood of my place - all frothing with blooming mountain laurel. It takes about 5 minutes. Enjoy.

A Birthday Celebration
Sunday, May 16, 2021      26 comments

We had our son and his family down yesterday for an extended birthday celebration full of love and laughter, sugar and butter, explorations and spit-up. His family is very young. His wife is young and the children are all small: 4 years old, not... Read more
Another Story Telling Video
Sunday, May 09, 2021      18 comments

As a break from a rather big project I'm working on I made another story telling video yesterday. It's still got that loving hands at home amateur look to it - but they're fun to make and remind me of how much I loved storytime at the library. ... Read more
After Long Silence
Saturday, April 24, 2021      23 comments

I still don't have a lot to say about what's going on deep inside. Me 'n' TheBrains are working on something that's not ready for public consumption. I've had a lot of quality time with my doctors, getting pro-active with some old lady issues. E... Read more
The 80/20 Girl Maintaining
Wednesday, March 17, 2021      19 comments

I've always been sort of an 80/20 kinda gal. Or rather - I have always aimed at being an 80'20 gal. It is a conscious choice, because I CAN conceive of perfection and its attraction is powerful. Perfection is the glittering peak, the pot of gol... Read more
Can't Let February Go Without Saying Goodbye
Sunday, February 28, 2021      22 comments

LOL - but I'll be glad to say goodbye. I think. Certainly good bye to cold. Particularly February cold in the south, which isn't very pretty. It's muddy. There are no thick blankets of snow to hide the mud or if there is, it will bring down tree... Read more

Stop. Right now. Pull your face into a smile. Don't even think about something that would make you smile. Just contract those cheek muscles. Even if it feels like a grimace, just do it and take note of how you feel. I hope you experience wh... Read more
Fortunate Me
Sunday, February 14, 2021      20 comments

I love fortune cookies. And Magic 8 Balls, wishing wells, tarot cards, horoscopes. DH, the astronomer, highly offended by astrology, says, in his scornful voice, it's a wonder I don't go to Las Vegas and play dice games if I love chance so much... Read more
Planning As I Go Along
Sunday, February 07, 2021      17 comments

Planning - as I age, as I release the demands of a job (I know - it's been more than 3 years - I'm a slow learner), living in the cockamamy world of global government interference, waiting to be useful to a young family about to welcome its newe... Read more
February Focus
Monday, February 01, 2021      19 comments

Here we are with a brand new month already and for me - just weeks away from a brand new grandbaby. If I am feeling the excitement and thrumming anticipation - how much more that little family 45 miles away is feeling it. I only had the one chi... Read more
More storytelling from Nana
Friday, January 29, 2021      12 comments

I have been wanting to tell the story of the 12 Dancing Princesses on a youtube video for quite some time - almost a year. It's a much longer story than any of the Three stories - 3 pigs, 3 billygoats, 3 bears. Those are simple concepts repeat... Read more
Nana Tells A Story
Tuesday, January 26, 2021      21 comments

I'm getting ready to film a video interview for my woman's club and thought I'd practice a bit. It's been almost a year since I last made a video and I'd forgotten how much fun this was to do. This one uses a different puppet and I see there's ... Read more
