Cousin Camp 2015

All PostsCousin Camp in Winter Park, Summer 2015I would have loved to have been able to be there and enjoy seeing them all together. I hope they continue to enjoy each other's company as they grow up.

After the Ball

I wonder what she's thinking... Not many good shots from this year's dance recital. The lighting is difficult, to say the least. But, I do like this one.

OLLI: Writing our lives

The is the 3rd or 4th time round that I have taken part in the "Writing Our Lives" class offer through our local OLLI@Auburn organization (Osher Lifelong Learners Institute at Auburn). I'm just a beginner! The class is filled with people who have been there for many...

Bread of Life

I recently decided to take up the art of sourdough. Then "quarantine" came along and I can't actually put myself in an expert's kitchen in close quarters and I've had to go searching for instruction elsewhere. Voila! Youtube to the rescue. My friend, Leigh sent me a...

Instant Pot Steel cut Oats

Instant Pot Steel cut Oats

This method takes only a bit less time, but you don’t have to babysit it. Put it in the Instant Pot, set the timer, come back later when it’s all done. I make 3-4 servings at a time, then reheat in the microwave.

Christmas in Florida

Christmas in Florida

Christmas in FloridaThe "boys" got a little crazy on Christmas Day. Sad to say "2 hour delivery" was not available on Christmas Day. Unable to find a Santa suit to wear while water skiing around Lake Berry, they resorted to squeezing themselves into Ella's Olaf the...

Spring is rearing its head

Spring is rearing its head

Why is Winter behaving like the angry man who stomps out slamming the door, only to return multiple times spewing things like "And one more thing!!!!" SLAM! However -- the flowers are bustin' out all over in between the frigid blasts... [gallery type="rectangular"...

Looking back — Camino

Looking back — Camino

Four and a half years ago -- in September 2013, I joined a friend to walk the Via Frances (Camino de Santiago de Compostela) in Spain -- we did start in St. Jean Pied de Port, France, but by day 2 we had made our way to Roncesvalles, Spain by crossing Napoleon's Pass...

Let those who have ears…

Let those who have ears…

I admit that I struggle with "the Church" and with the apparent ideologies of parts of the church that I deal with... like the Cursillo Movement. I admit that I struggle to be inclusive, to remember and love these entities that I struggle with, even when we diverge on...

Backbutton focus

Backbutton focus

So -- I wonder if this method would have made better shots of the hummingbirds outside my window. Next season, I think I'll give it a try... maybe test it out on some fast moving grandchildren. It is fortunate that I too shoot with a Canon 6D, so these instructions...

  • Being (as opposed to Doing)
    All this social distancing and its associated “quarantine” way of life offers, no, it demands, some serious reflection on how things are. It gives a space to learn what it is to Be instead of just to Do. In that space, I can hope to learn that I cannot possess God/Eucharist/Christ/a good prayer life/love/peace/mass… What […]
  • Two edged sword
    A time be born, a time to die… When my brother in law died nearly 3 years ago, I sang those words at his memorial service. “To everything,[turn, turn, turn] there is a season [turn, turn, turn] and a time to every purpose under heaven.” Today as we were out running errands, the Byrds sang […]
  • Expanding the Social Circle
    We got brave: my daughter and her family needed to vacate because their house is on market and there were several showings. They brought the kids’ bikes and skates and legos, and the son-in-law’s golf clubs (his parents live very close by). We spent hours on the back porch just being and talking. Kev played […]
