Tall Tales: Paul Bunyan Day books, recipes and activities

Paul Bunyan Day? Yes, Paul Bunyan Day is Monday, June 28th and its a perfect time to have some family fun all surrounding this legendary figure.



Paul Bunyan is a larger-than-life folk hero lumberjack

who embodies frontier vitality. This larger than life legend reportedly "cut his teeth on a peavy pole and grew so fast that one week after being born, he had to wear his father's clothes."
His companion was a blue ox named… Continue

Bedtime Book Basket

My little girls are gone again–off camping with their grandparents.

Summer’s starting now, and these two little ones are growing up. It’s so

fun to see them making experiences off on their own now.

2010-06-15 - Tuesday Thoughts - Bedtime Book Basket

So, I’m sitting here blogging, de-cluttering, and missing our little

bedtime… Continue

So Many Books...So Many Colors

A task for the kid-less weekend…



Yep. What do I do when the girls are at their grandparents and my wonderful spouse is at work?Organize our book shelf by color! Yes, I’m weird. (And just in case you think I’m nuts too, I also took walks and had lots of time to write.)



I’d seen this long ago on some blog and thought, “Now that would really improve our bookshelf.” I’m always searching for ways to simplify things in our home since clutter and mess really…

Monday Muse | The Beauty of Buttons

Buttons. Yes, a strange fascination, I admit. But I love them.



2010-05-31 - Monday Muse - The Beauty of Buttons



I’ve always loved buttons. Those colorful, textured little baubles from the past. And yes, I know, it doesn’t exactly match up with the whole de-clutter philosophy…but they do bring me such happiness. And…

Teen Girls Today - More Pressure Yet More Resources

Back when I was a teenager (in prehistoric times), girls did not have nearly the pressures they have today. Without cell phones and the Internet, there was no need to be constantly on, so there was more time

to relax. There also wasn't the same urgency to beef up the college

resume with hundreds of clubs and AP courses and we didn't have parents

that signed us up for every activity known to man. However, we still

had problems, and there were very few resources…

my first love-books

Today we are looking at flea markets and books. I love books. Always have and probably will until I cant read or see or whatever anymore. One of the fun aspects of reading a book is scoring the sale. Yeah, sure, new books are great because they are new and don’t smell and no one else has ‘fingered’ the book. And I guess the Kindle and other e-readers are nice for those who like that sort of thing. I’m also a fan of audio books, especially in the car in traffic or on a long trip. But lately,…

Brenda Novak's Online Auction to Benefit Diabetes Research

Diabetes is a killer. My 15 year old son was diagnosed with it when he was 11. It's been a tough almost five years, but things are looking up. I met Brenda Novak, a NY Times bestselling author, at a local writers meeting. Her son has the disease, too. Brenda is a dynamo. She took a proactive approach and started her Online Auction a few years ago. Since then, it's raised more than $700,000 for diabetes research!!


I host a page on the auction site, and this week Brenda is…

Parenting? Enjoy the Ride

From my blog post on OC FAMILY



I remember when the only parenting book available to me was “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” It was a heavy tome which described in detail everything going on with

a mama’s body – sometimes a little too detailed – it often gave the

worst case scenario which pretty much turned me into a hypochondriac

for the next 9 months. These days, parents-to-be are luckier because

there are so many… Continue

Puppy Loving Pigeons

So, I can read, big deal right. It was pointed out to me recently that with the death of J.D. Salinger all my favorite authors are dead. Just in case you wanted to know the others include Douglas Adams and a bunch of long gone philosophers. I don’t make nearly enough time for my own reading pleasure anymore and no where has that been more…
