The Abilene Farmer’s Market

After living in Abilene since 2008 (give or take a year away), I finally visited the Abilene Farmer’s Market. I had always driven by the covered area with the big sign out front, but I had never been up and about early enough to catch it. For those who are interested, it’s on the corner … Continue reading

Life is Not a Problem to be Solved

Life is Not a Problem to be Solved

Recently I was inspired by this poem by The Beautiful Due. And it came to pass when the I that is me was no longer afraid of the words spoken by the God that dwellest between the cherubim, that life ceased being a problem to be solved. Ours is a drama to be played, the we … Continue reading

Bits of the Weekend, and Too Many Toss Pillows

What a great weekend it’s been! It’s the beginning of spring break for a lot of folks (but not for me until Thursday), so there’s been some excitement in the air. I was disappointed at first because we had been planning to go rock climbing on Saturday, but my Weather Channel app was predicting thunderstorms … Continue reading

Resolutions Check-Up and Feminist Zumba

Resolutions Check-Up and Feminist Zumba

The title of this post may be a bit misleading. The Zumba class I attended was not specifically “feminist,” but I’ll get to that later. How have I been doing with keeping up with my new year’s resolutions, you ask? Well honey, 3 1/4 out of 5 ain’t bad. 1. Read Books – 1 point. … Continue reading

After you graduate from college and get married and real life starts, it seems like you still don’t have everything figured out (imagine that), even concerning yourself and who you are. Sometimes I wonder if I’m strong enough, resourceful enough, or “mama bear” enough to be a good Southern woman. There are times that I … Continue reading

Halloween and My Cooking Skills

Halloween and My Cooking Skills

I wish I could start this post with a picture of my awesome Halloween costume. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen because I don’t have one. Actually, I don’t think I’ve had one Logan was a cult leader and I was a nun (his virgin sacrifice)–in 2008. Here’s a picture of that. You can’t see … Continue reading

Daydreams

Daydreams

  Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about where I want to “end up” one day. Most of the time, I consider my profession: Maybe I’ll be an Old Testament and Hebrew professor, who spends time teaching, grading, making lessons plans, serving on committees, and researching for my next article or book review.
