Monsanto Survey

Joining BlogHer for the month of November's NabloPoMo event.  I have enjoyed it.  I have kept my committment to blog everyday.  I have met new readers and have found new things to read.  Overall - completely satisfied!I also have received daily emails from BlogHer on various different topics.  I received one email requesting I participate in a survey regarding food.  The tagline was something like,"How well do you know where your food comes from?"...more

Is it possible to actually catch up?

I always think, "If I can just get caught up, then life will be so much easier."I am starting to think this is delusional thinking.A game I play with the voice in my head?Obviously it hasn't happened yet.Am I just fooling myself?Is it even a realistic possibility?  ...more

Caprock Canyon State Park

As I mentioned previously, I had never visited this state park.  It really should be on your list if you ever find yourself in the area.  As unexpected as this trip was, this was perfect weather for a trip like this.  I believe I am much more interested in camping in the fall than in the spring/summer months.  For one thing, I don't really like being hot and not being able to find any relief from the heat.  For another thing, I don't like flies, mosquitoes, other random bugs, snakes, etc.  These problems were not a problem on this trip....more

Coloring My Hair Makes Me Love My Kids More.

Obviously posting to this blog early in the day works best for me.  If I can get it done by lunch time, I'm good.  If not, it'll be a struggle or won't happen at all.  The last two days I've put it off until evening.  Last two days, evening rolls around and I'm brain dead.Today I took a personal day.A much needed personal day!I headed to the big city to visit with some friends and get my hair done.  I was in much need of a haircut and a color. Someone once asked me why I color my hair?...more

Adventures of a Mother/Daughter camping trip.

These adventures took place at Caprock Canyon State Park.  It is a beautiful park, and while I was born and raised in Texas, spent most of my life here, I've never been to this park before.  Truthfully?  There are a lot of places I've never seen in this great state.  It is part of the beauty of Texas.  There is a little something for everyone here, and it could take a lifetime to discover it....more
