I’m currently snowed in and I have a pretty good case of cabin fever. However, I have spent a large amount of my time listening to Gillian Welch and wishing I could write songs like her. She calms my spirit. I’m particularly enchanted with Wayside/Back in Time from her album Soul Journey. It’s a great … [Read more…]
We had little to no internet access during Thanksgiving week, so I’m a little late with my greeting. We had a quiet week at the cabin where we experienced some very cold temperatures and a little ice. I buried my nose in a book for a couple of days and tried to relax.
Over fall break we explored the Bee Branch Trail in Beavers Bend State Park. I really loved it, but I have to say that the only way I made it through was knowing there was pizza and beer at the end of the trail. Sad, I know. Here’s a few pictures from our hike.
Nathan and Annie went early to the cabin to have lots of fun before I joined them for my Fall break. Just to be perfectly clear — Annie is our dog. She’s not our child. Though, my estimation is that triplets could not be any more demanding than this one little dog. But that’s another … [Read more…]

Okay, I guess the warm fuzzy feelings could technically be the wine and the lack of sleep. In any case, our friend Brent has … [Read more…]
Here’s another update from the Playlist archives. I listen to Chris Knight all the time. I’ve always appreciated how he writes about his hometown and the people he grew up with. He’s got some great lines — including one we say all the time, “where will the rabbits run now?” Seriously, he put that line … [Read more…]
I’ve been updating my Playlist page to be a little more user friendly for me to post to regularly. Thanks to our friend Erik, he helps me figure out things for this site. Because, I have to say that when I read message boards about how to do something on WordPress, my brain instantly turns … [Read more…]
Labor Day weekend was a hot one in Southeastern Oklahoma. So we figured we should get right out there in the heat and thumb our nose at the sun. I talk tough, but I’m definitely a fair-weather outdoors person. In fact, I hate the heat and pray for winter each year. Nathan loves summer and truly … [Read more…]
Last week I sent Nathan to the cabin alone. He was voted off the island. Exiled to the country. Get outta here boy and take those dogs with you! Just kidding. He decided to go to the cabin a few days early before I joined him for Labor Day weekend. I think he wanted peace … [Read more…]
I’ve been working a lot. I’ve had no time for writing or laundry or writing about dirty laundry. However, I did find these photos from our summer trip to the OKC Zoo and thought that my three readers might appreciate them — especially if you are single.
