I'm not a yoga teacher. I'd like to be one, but I won't pretend doing yoga (on and off in the beginning) for 13 years means I'm a teacher by any means. I understand fully that practicing and teaching are two entirely different things, no matter what you're talking about. I've practiced with dozens of … Continue reading New Instructor, New Students, Not-so-New Self Doubt
I absolutely love my goats. I knew I'd like having goats - what's not to like? They're hilariously curious creatures; innocently ornery. But I never expected to love them. Like, "where have they been all my life" kind of happiness. They have turned out to be one of the most personally rewarding animals I've ever kept … Continue reading Every Obstacle is an Opportunity
I've met a few pot-stirrers in my life - I know you have, too. It's a fun hobby, when you think about it. You get to poke the proverbial bear from afar and watch the drama ensue, the provokee ideally none the wiser that you were the provoker. It's like Reality TV en vivo, and … Continue reading The Not-So-Mysterious Mystery of the Growing Coffee Mug Collection
I did not think that before this week was out I would have MORE to write about my goats, but as they often do, they proved me wrong. Especially Rosie and Lily. After the Chicken Soap Opera at the beginning of the week, the goats and chickens all seemed to settle in with each other … Continue reading Freedom-Fighting Goats
My husband and I got the Chicken Bug - real bad. We absolutely looooove having chickens in our yard - they're extremely entertaining and the eggs are so fresh and yummy. Mmmmm... So of course we decided to get more. We called up The Chicken Man (he's awesome) and lined up a time to come … Continue reading The Chicken Saga Continues
I'm not sure if I made myself clear when I wrote about how much I hate fire ants, but I'm happy to recap: They're evil. They can and should all burn in hell. The universe would be a better place without them. I hate them. When I walk, especially through the field, I never stop … Continue reading “I didn’t do it.”
I'm in the oil business. No, not that kind of oil. Unfortunately. Because then I wouldn't be peddling my words to you here on this blog thing. I am a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA Essential Oils. Basically, they're an incredible essential oil company that produces chemically pure, indigenously sourced products, and empowers the people who … Continue reading Essential Oils Anonymous
When I applied for graduate school, I filled out applications for at least 6 different schools. Every institution required similar and also different entrance criteria - transcripts, an admission essay, an interview, personality tests, and of course, the application itself. I didn't choose 6 different potential school entirely because I wanted to attend them all. … Continue reading I’m Somebody Now!
I'm a Capricorn. I'm not the type to check my daily readings - "Today is your day for love - make sure to wear red!" - but personality-wise, I am a Capricorn through-and-through: My Strengths: Responsible (yes, ma'am), disciplined (to a fault), self-control (except when it comes to ice cream), good managers (reads: Ms. Bossypants) … Continue reading I am the Goat Lady. Goo Goo G’Joob.
Everybody has a thing. I'll go ahead and start with one of mine: my teeth. I am seriously disturbed by my teeth being messed with, or even the potential of feeling pain through my teeth. I absolutely ABHOR dentists (especially the ones that charge a lot - insult to injury), and I get overwhelming, nauseating … Continue reading She Does Not Like Butts & She Cannot Lie
