About Towns :: A Cross-City Bike Ride
On the last Saturday of April I rode my bike from my home in South Saint Paul over to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's house. Twenty miles isn't really such a feat in the biking world, but it was exhilarating and beautiful. I loved that I got to cross ...

Notes From a Springtime Cottage
I just thought I would share a few shots showing how things are greening up around here. Most of these were actually taken this past weekend, so even more changes have occurred already! That is one of the amazing things about spring: how quickly things begi...

I have been wanting to do a "Day in the Life" post for a little while now. I enjoy having peeks into how different people around the world live on a daily basis. But let me tell you, you don't want to see one of my days right now. Suffice it to say that we ...

Imagining April 2015 :: A Month Map
Ahh, April. The month when all will start to burst into glowy green and
trees will begin to look like they are trimmed with bits of lace. And there is no better month to say Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit! Well, before I get to new ideas for April, let's see how I...

March Reads 2015
 Good Monday morning to you! I can hardly believe that it's almost time to flip the calendar page again. Is that what happens throughout the year here in the Upper Midwest- the year starts out slow just like an engine trying to start in the cold and then pi...

About Towns :: March 27, 2015
Can you believe we went from this: to this: overnight? Par for the course in Minnesota though. Yes, buds are wanting to bloom around here, but we always end up with some lingering snowy days before we go all glowy-green around here. Thankfully, it's mostly ...

Imagining May 2015 :: A Month Map
Welcome, welcome, May! From my journal this morning: It's lovely, lovely May Day and the day is starting out promising. The birds have been singing since before the sun rose. My narcissus are beginning to bloom and my tulips are in bud. One or two of those ...

Blessed Resurrection Sunday ~ A Very Happy Easter to You
      Looking for the Living One in a Cemetery 24  1-3  At
the crack of dawn on Sunday, the women came to the tomb carrying the

Please Allow Me to Introduce You: "The Vegan Version"
And speaking of Julie and Julia , we watched it again last week. It was the first time my girls had seen it and it was so fun to share it with them. What a good movie! I don't know if Julia Child was as exuberant about life as Meryl Streep was in portraying...

Introduction
I am a happily married, homeschooling mother of two high school girls. Moved back to Minnesota after an 8-year "explore" in Florida. I am currently a student,studying Library Information Technology, because I think libraries are one of humankind's greatest inventions! An ISFJ, I love to think, plan and make lists, savor the seasons and enjoy the flavors of a plant-based diet. My relationship with Jesus keeps me grounded and lifts me high all at the same time. I write about all of that, plus some knitting and art too at my blog, my home online since 2006: Golightly Place!
