SoCS: Spoke Too Soon

It spoke too soon. Spring. The season didn’t shout loud enough on March 20th. (It was more like a whimper.) It’s been a retreating plod toward warmer weather and green grass. Last weekend, we had the worst April snowfall on record. Actually, it was a blizzard because the winds were howling as well. At times, the snow fell sideways. And blew sideways. As you noticed within my Wednesday post, I spent the entire weekend indoors and did not venture outRead more

Yoga Nuts

For those of you scratching your head because you know nothing of yoga… In yoga practice, we say, “Namaste,” sometimes followed by, “May the divine in me honor the divine in you.” Namaste – Nama means bow, as means I, and te means you. Therefore, Namaste literally means “I bow to you.” The gesture Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soulRead more

Gummy Bear Truth

Do you ever question your sanity? Do gummy bears or other gelatinous objects talk to you? Does a horned animal give you daily affirmations? Who tells you that you’re not the crazy one? Or are you crazy? While pondering the answers to these questions, please enjoy a musical interlude provided by one of me-me-me favorite Muppet characters. Happy, Joyful, Sane Wednesday! This post has been brought to you by a crazy little puppet with orange hair. It has also beenRead more

Talk Amongst YourSELF

“Talking to yourself is okay. Answering back is risky.”  ~Brian Spellman~ Who among us does not talk to self? Can I see a show of hands? No? What do you say to yourself or ask yourself? Do you answer? I fully admit I talk to myself daily. Barring details, my self-talk isn’t always positive. I tend to beat up the inner Mary J, rather than give her positive affirmations about the good things in her life. Is this the normalRead more

Alphabet Math

That would be me. From Wikipedia: “Elementary algebra differs from arithmetic in the use of abstractions, such as using letters to stand for numbers that are either unknown or allowed to take on many values. For example, in x+2=5 the letter x is unknown, but the law of inverses can be used to discover its value: x=3. In E = mc2, the letters E and m are variables, and the letter c is a constant, the speed of light inRead more

Twofer Wednesday

I couldn’t decide on just one one-liner for today, so… I concur with Picard. No matter how rich or famous or beautiful or powerful one human can be, it should never discount the value of all other humans in the room, neighborhood, country, or world. Support your fellow human beings and aliens! So true. If only we talked to each other instead of at each other; if only we let go of our own insecurities, fears and misinformation; if onlyRead more

Resolution

My resolution is true. Just want to be a stay-at-home cat mom. Bang on the food dish all day, nap with my head upside down and feet in the air. A stay-at-home cat mom. No worries of deadlines, sleep until the sun comes up mind without a care. A stay-at home mom to the kids, with whom I can play. Take up a new hobby if the open agenda dares. I want to be a stay-at-home cat mom, to write,Read more
