Posted by mcm0704 on June 5, 2015 |

According to a couple of articles I read in The Dallas Morning News this week, we have been approaching the problem of obesity the wrong way, especially here in the U.S. The dramatic rise in obesity and type 2 diabetes in children and adults has most recently been tied to our sedentary lifestyle. So the […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on February 13, 2015 |

I was alarmed and dismayed when I heard about the three young people killed in North Carolina this past week. Deah Barakat, 23; his wife of a little more than six weeks, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, 21; and her sister, Razan, 19 — were shot and killed at a housing complex near the University of North […]

Friday’s Odds And Ends

This is the second day of the garage sale to benefit the Winnsboro Center for the Arts, and response from the community has been great. One of the things I especially love about living in a small town is the willingness of people to work together for the common good; at least most of the […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Another week has whizzed by. I was busy all week preparing for the big garage sale at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts, which didn’t leave much time for writing, but I did get a few thousand words done on my current work in progress. How was your week? I hope it was productive and, […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Here we are at day 3 of the Arctic Blast that is affecting much of the United States. The way the media is going crazy with reports you would think we never had winter before. Granted, winter does not usually come this early. I can’t remember freezing temperatures before December here in Texas, but then […]

Friendship Deep and True

Posted by mcm0704 on November 8, 2013 |

Just a short blog today. I have company, so I have been away from my computer and the Internet quite a bit this week. My friend, Jan, is visiting from South Dakota, and we have not seen each other for twelve years – lots to catch up on. We have been friends since we were […]

We are looking ahead to a busy weekend. Some of our kids are coming out to celebrate my husband’s retirement from the Permanent Deaconate. He has served the church in many ways for 35 years, and is now ready to just sit in the pew like everyone else. We will also have an early Father’s […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on May 13, 2013 |

Yesterday was a grand day. Since it was Mother’s Day I got to do whatever I wanted to, which included doing some gardening. For many years that was the day that I got a lot of bedding plants and put color all around my house. I don’t do that much any more as I have […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on March 25, 2013 |

Well, I missed posting a book review yesterday. I decided to take most of the day off from anything online, and that felt good. I think we do need to disconnect sometimes. I went out to lunch with my hubby, and then we watched TV shows we’d taped, and I finished the jigsaw puzzle I’d […]

Here’s some recent news regarding the Keystone XL Pipeline. Twenty-eight Vermont towns added their voices this week to the chorus of national and international; opposition to tar sands expansion by passing “tar sands free” and related tar sands resolutions in the past two days. This recent batch of local resolutions brings the total number to […]
