Finding Home
There's a chance that moving to a new city doesn't have to be the protracted mess I've managed to turn it into, but why do things the easy way? I don't really know how to find a new church. I've done it twice in my life, both times with another person to al...

Self-Care is Green, Too

Sudden Stop
My father has been a CDL holder since the licensing began in 1986. When the program was coming into effect, his employer handed round training materials to all of their drivers to study for the written exam. For the couple weeks before the exam date, watchi...

Running Crazy
This is pretty much what it looks like to run in Cincy lately, except we have more hills. Image source: Patrick Nijhuis on freeimages.com . Running metaphors tend to make me a little stabby, not because they're (necessarily) untrue, but because geez, surely...

Heat It Up
Y'all. It's cold outside. That being the case, I'm using up a lot of electricity. And I'm betting you are, too, even you lucky folks in Austin, who I've heard have also been a mite chilly lately. Once upon a time in the depths of environmental bloggers past...

Rolling Right Along: Capital Bikeshare and Pennsylvania Avenue
I went to D.C. twice in December. Not on purpose. Well, okay, yes  on purpose, but while the first one was planned a few weeks ahead of time, the second one was a surprise that I willingly said 'yes, please!' to and had a lot less time to make plans for. An...

We Don't Play. We March.
This may be one of those posts that sends my Facebook friend count plummeting, and I spent approximately three nanoseconds fretting about that before I remembered that those likely to go are the ones who can't stand to be friends with people who disagree wi...

My current MC, Sybil, has gone a bit quiet but is not forgotten. She and I still meet to talk about her life and what new thing I'm going to throw at her next. This is a school story, because it's a genre that I've loved most of my life (more like Chalet Sc...

Best Books of 2016
As promised, the top five books that I read last year. Of course, this is highly subjective and my loving a book is no guarantee that you will. Please note that these aren't necessarily books published in 2016, but rather books I read in 2016. I'm not that ...

Will It Grow? Secret Garden, Round Two
I do not consider myself particularly lucky, especially when it comes to critical life moments like choosing a checkout queue at the supermarket or finding a good parking space, but sometimes, some really great  times, I'm the luckiest person alive. Signed ...

Because I Can Never Say Enough Things About Libraries
It was a very bookish trip to D.C. this time around (the more so if I count The Secret Garden  under "books"), with visits to Folger Shakespeare Library, the Library of Congress, and Politics and Prose bookstore. I landed at Folger Shakespeare Library  firs...

Reading Challenges Update: December
I finished all of my reading challenges for 2016! Will you do that again?  No, I don't think so. Most of them I forgot to check in on more than once or twice all year, and therefore I didn't technically fulfill the challenge requirements. It was fun, but I'...

Story
Tagline
The half-witted, half-baked, half-mad ramblings of a widowed, thirty-something, earth-loving, commuter-cycling, runner-girl Christ follower.
Introduction
Married to Chadwick, social media and communications person at BikeTexas, MA student at Texas Tech University. I shop at HEB, grow my own tomatoes (kinda), check out all the books at Austin Public Library, and on Sundays you can find me at Red River Church. All the rest of the time, catch me on Twitter, unless it's been a long day and I have computer closed, phone turned off, and a book open!
