Beating the Winter Blues

I have lived most of my life in the Chicagoland area but, even before that, I lived in Pennsylvania.  Point?  I’m used to cold winters!  Doesn’t mean that I necessarily like them much, but I have learned to embrace them.

As I’ve gotten older (and colder) I’ve had my share of the Winter Blues.  They usually…

Winter Wonderland

Every New Year, thousands of people (if not more) make the resolution to get fit.  They sign up for gym memberships, buy workout DVD’s, and order the latest and greatest gadget from a slick infomercial on TV.  And usually about this time of year, several weeks in, a large majority of these same people let the…

Green Moms in Winter - Braving the SubZero Temperatures

Boy, what a difference a couple days make!  This past weekend, I was so excited that temperatures were warm enough to run errands on my bicycle.  Not so this morning.  This morning, we were greeted with a wind chill of -14 degrees.

For those of you who are not sure what a “wind chill” means, that is the number assigned to what the temperature feels like if you factor in the wind.  For those of us here in the Midwest, it just means brutal cold! And while yes, we should expect…

The Magic of the First Snowfall

As much as I loathe winter weather, there truly is something magical about the first snow of the season.  Those white flakes falling gracefully from the sky always bring an unexpected peacefulness in my otherwise chaotic world.  And being able to share that special moment with my kids makes it all that more memorable for me.

We got our first snowy dusting just this…

Bad Dog

 

So lately, our dog has really been pressing his luck around here.  Just when I think I might actually kinda like the big ol' doofus, he goes and does something SO incredibly naughty that I wanna open the front door and allow him to become a street dog.  And unfortunately for my mother-in-law, his latest incredibly naughty "something" just so happened to…

Where Are All The Wooly Worms?

One of the things I love about late summer and early fall is the wooly worms.  I don’t know what their technical name is, but I usually just call them wooly worms…or fuzzy caterpillars.

My grandfather always told me that the color of the wooly worms was an indication of how hard or mild the winter…

Cooped Up

It rained all winter. A mix of rain and snow actually. And now that the sun has come out. Spring has arrived. Warmth has freed me from all of the layers.  And I'm feeling awfully cooped up this week.



It's raining again. Today was Day 2. Only. And it verged on the brink of beautiful and then hilarious followed by insane every hour. …
