Back to School Adventures of the Work from Home/Stay at Home Mom
Today my kids went back to school. Third grade and Kindergarten, ages 9 and 6.  I've stayed at home with my boys since the beginning of time (theirs). In that time (mine), I've raised them to the best of my abilities. I've also worked as a freelance writer,...

A Pork Sword, a Yam Bag and a Scalpel
When our oldest child was two, he discovered his boy parts.
With a smile of glee plastered on his tiny face, he sat in the bathtub and
played with his twig and berries. I sighed and told my husband, “This is your
area. I’m out.” My husband cocked his head t...

The Angel of Two Mule Junction
It was a hot day in August when we shoved the last of the camping essentials into the trailer and caught the horses to load them for the trip. The summer had been a bit off kilter. Good times were certainly had, but the stronger theme of the last few months...

Pokey days lead to speedy years
In reference to parenting young children, someone once wrote to me, "The days are slow but the years fly by so quickly". It was one of you smart readers of this blog an I couldn't agree more. Where has the time gone? My babies aren't babies anymore. That's ...
In reference to parenting young children, someone once wrote to me, "The days are slow but the years fly by so quickly". It was one of you smart readers of this blog an I couldn't agree more. Where has the time gone? My babies aren't babies anymore. That's as bittersweet as it gets.

I wrote something! OMG
Today, while perusing Facebook, I was presented with a picture of Robert Redford and a wistful, time-gone-by quote about a quaint town in Mexico. Charmed and intrigued, I clicked on the link to his most recent Sundance Catalog. The first item displayed was a gauzy, plaid dish towel posing as a ...

Corn Fed Girl
Introduction
I was raised on corn and pork in the great state of Iowa. I enjoy reading, cooking, eating, art, photography, wine, the great outdoors, most animals, remembering the past incorrectly, licking glass and pecking at shiny things. In my spare time I mother two tow-headed boys, write stories, illustrate, and do laundry. I also share my life with a handsome husband, one awesome Red Dog, two playful kittens, two adorable ponies, three burly Quarter Horses, one elderly Paint Horse and anyone who needs a warm house and a sense of belonging.
Education

My vehicle broke down in the parking lot of the gas station next door. When I inquired about a room and explained my situation, the front desk attendant told me that they were quite full but had a few rooms left. He priced a room at $176.00, but offered a "discount" of $136. I see here the rooms advertised as $89. Something smells funny.

Any business with "Outfitters" in their title and a dog named Sailor as their greeter is okay by me!
