Once upon a time we lived on a boat.

A 27′ Hunter sail boat, I don’t count the bowsprit if you ask my love he will say it was a 30 footer- it. was. not. We lived in Santa Cruz harbor and life was…well, never boring (not that it is now) When he… Continue Reading “Once upon a time we lived on a boat.”

To Be Grown. 

Like many (or all) I became a true grown up by accident, or should I say misstep. The perpetration of something that I never intended to do.  Could truthfully never have anticipated doing.  In all my time till this point, I could I assured you without… Continue Reading “To Be Grown. “

BASEBALL! GLORIOUS BASEBALL!

I was raised by a recovering Catholic and a Frisbetairan (my dad believed that when you die your soul goes up on the roof and no one can get it down. And if you bad you get chewed on by the Big Dog.) We… Continue Reading “BASEBALL! GLORIOUS BASEBALL!”

Self Indulgent Ramblings and Abstract Metaphors

I am constantly amazed with how the acceptance of my situation and a lack of expectations has lead me to the far East Coast and happiness. I get to see the boys (though it is not enough) and while I am always sad when they… Continue Reading “Self Indulgent Ramblings and Abstract Metaphors”

Are You Checking Out My Package?

Well You Should. Actually it’s packages. Filled with bees.  Are you impressed yet?! No, fine. I was pretty pleased yesterday when I got to pick up my bee packages from Sparky’s honey and syrup.  In contrast to a nuclease- a package of bees contains… Continue Reading “Are You Checking Out My Package?”

Oh the Bee-manity!

Well… The bees did not make it through the winter.  I am not really surprised and neither are my bee mentors who have lost a few hive themselves this year. A bee can only preform cleansing flights when the outside temp is above 50 or… Continue Reading “Oh the Bee-manity!”

That Time I Brought a Hawk Home.

I’m not kidding. I don’t know if it was a good thing my husband was unsurprised and (to my dismay) rather unimpressed He was actually said “that sound about right” Seriously?!  What do I have to do to get a reaction around here?! When… Continue Reading “That Time I Brought a Hawk Home.”

A Rant. My First. Probably Not My Last.

For almost three years now we have not had cable TV.  This started because we could not afford the $160+ a month bill.  In the end it has been AMAZING! The only thing we both had to give up is live sports and we… Continue Reading “A Rant. My First. Probably Not My Last.”

‘Killer’ The Chick Vs The Invading Cricket Hordes!

20 days ago we started incubation on 41 eggs from the ladies, these eggs included parings from all four roosters so this was going to be interesting right from the beginning. The first bit of excitement comes on day 3 and 6 of incubation.… Continue Reading “‘Killer’ The Chick Vs The Invading Cricket Hordes!”

“Officially unemployed, homeless and in debt. Time to start all over again, here we go…”

I posted that Facebook status four years go yesterday. My how things change.  Well- not the debt part.  And right now I am unemployed, so I guess the “more things change the more they stay the same”? OWW my head hurts… All I know… Continue Reading ““Officially unemployed, homeless and in debt. Time to start all over again, here we go…””

Your Time In The Coop Is Over- The Flock Has Spoken…

Spring rain! This is first bit of parsiptation I can remember that isn’t frozen, I had almost forgot what rain sounded like.  It is amazing to watch it melt the last bits of snow and hard to believe that spring could really be taking hold.… Continue Reading “Your Time In The Coop Is Over- The Flock Has Spoken…”

The Most Beautiful Thing I have Ever Seen!

There are many things in this life that make all the other crappy parts worth living through.  Love, beauty, kindness and friendship top the list. There few people who embody all these things.   One of them is my childhood best friend. We met… Continue Reading “The Most Beautiful Thing I have Ever Seen!”

For The Love Of Trees.

The commute to the ocean has been a weekly part of my life but my physical home was always in the mountains, guarded by the giant redwoods. I was conceived and raised under their watchful bows and I am ever grateful for their tutelage.   For… Continue Reading “For The Love Of Trees.”

Are Phoenix Ashes Impatient?

When a Phoenix dies, do its remains know they will be reborn? This past few months I have managed to; loose my dad, quit my job, flounder in the beginnings of a new venture, remain almost completely homebound for months and gradually loose my mind in the… Continue Reading “Are Phoenix Ashes Impatient?”

Spring Time in Maine Part II- The Thawing

It’s happening, really happening! Even though in your head you know spring has got to come.   For a long time this winter I didn’t quite believe it. Neither did my husband. When I told him that spring must arrive sometime- since it does it… Continue Reading “Spring Time in Maine Part II- The Thawing”

Eastward Ho! Part III (Actually Part II.) Confused Yet? Good, so am I. Onward!

The first day journey was relatively uneventful (except for my love shipping ALL our shoes to upstate NY.) Most aspects of the move were completely unplanned.  One of the few things we DID plan (besides mine sapphires in MT) was to visit as many national parks… Continue Reading “Eastward Ho! Part III (Actually Part II.) Confused Yet? Good, so am I. Onward!”
