Homeward Bound

  It's finally here!! I'm making my first journey home from St. Joe. I booked my flight awhile back. You know I'm not going to Baton Rouge after it gets too hot, and with this warm winter, that's next week. So I found a cheap flight from O'Hare to New Orleans, and the day has finally … Continue reading Homeward Bound

It’s Moving Day!!

After all of the preparations, and the interviewing and the job offer and the house hunting, it's finally moving day! There's no solid place to land yet in Michigan, but it's in progress. I just got the inspection report yesterday, and there are a few items of concern, but I've been told it'll work out. … Continue reading It’s Moving Day!!

Sunday Night Check-In: Home Stretch

I'm feeling a bit sad tonight. The good-byes have started. I'm looking forward to this week but a part of me is dreading it. I have lunches, dinners and breakfasts scheduled all week with friends.... friends who will be saying good-bye. We'll see each other two hours later on Facebook so it's not like it'll … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Home Stretch

Sunday Night Check-In: Pray

I went to my Sacred Circle gathering at The Red Shoes tonight, and I was so glad I went. My insides were raw, and when I rounded the corner into the space where we meet, I saw about 10 other people with their rawness scrawled all over their faces. I knew that I was in the … Continue reading Sunday Night Check-In: Pray

Looking for Comfort Food: Serop’s Express

I was looking forward to the Summer Solstice Gong Bath at The Red Shoes tonight. I finished work and did a short TRX workout so I could relax and ease my way into the weekend in a beautifully refreshing way. But when I drove up in the parking lot, there was only one vehicle. I … Continue reading Looking for Comfort Food: Serop’s Express

A Primer in Outdoor Cooking: ShoppersChoice.com

My friend Alisa got a new job a  few months ago, and I have been very curious to check out what she's doing. For one thing, she's super excited about the place, and it's not all that often that people really love where they work. She's been briefing me on all of the fun things … Continue reading A Primer in Outdoor Cooking: ShoppersChoice.com

Project Love Baton Rouge: Project Aborted

Okay, so my ENFPness got distracted at day 34 of my Project Love Baton Rouge series. Can't help it... that's just me. When I decide I've lost interest, I've lost interest. But I think 34 days was pretty good! I had lots to think about and made myself be open-minded about the city where I … Continue reading Project Love Baton Rouge: Project Aborted

Project Love Baton Rouge: Day 32 – Fresh Citrus

Momma took my niece to pick oranges and grapefruits today at a local orchard. I went to Sammy's (my brother) house and picked up my sack of just-picked packages of juicy, orangey, vitamin C. As soon as I got home I cut open and peeled an orange and ate it. Citrus is the one thing … Continue reading Project Love Baton Rouge: Day 32 – Fresh Citrus

Project Love Baton Rouge: Day 29 – Independent Supermarkets

When I lived in Memphis there was one choice in supermarkets - Kroger. To be fair, there were many different sizes and flavors of Kroger, but the mega-chain came in and bought all of the other grocery stores after I'd been there about 5 years. Wild Oats was there and eventually became Whole Foods, but it … Continue reading Project Love Baton Rouge: Day 29 – Independent Supermarkets

Project Love Baton Rouge: Day 4 – Veggie Accessibility

This morning I arrived at my office and was telling my cube mates that I had walked to work for the past two days. They were kidding around that they wanted me to be the health police over there and start letting me control their food intake. I guess I do eat pretty healthy. The … Continue reading Project Love Baton Rouge: Day 4 – Veggie Accessibility
