It’s the Little Things

It’s the Little Things

Over the last few days, I’ve felt a bit like the decency of humanity is on the decline.  If you just look around you see it everywhere.  The horrors reported daily on the national news, the shock of the treatment of other citizens in our own communities and then there are the things I see and deal with in person on a daily basis. Yesterday, on my way to an appointment I experienced a “road-rager”.  I was in bumper to…

Working Like A Man

Working Like A Man

  A few months ago my mother was asked by an acquaintance how long she had been working like a man. It came totally out of the blue and both of us thought it was an odd question at the time.  After some reflection I decided it wasn’t and isn’t such an odd question because in all actuality, my mother does work like a man. My mom has a “regular” job as a receptionist, which isn’t so extraordinary but is typically…

Feeling Stuck

Feeling Stuck

      Hey all!  Just a quick check in.  Again, it’s been awhile and part of the reason is because I’m feeling stuck.  I’ve had a little bit of apathy, a touch of writers block and a whole lot of ‘meh’, lately.  No,  somedays I have ideas, even great ideas, or ideas that I’ve been kicking around for awhile and I start writing them…in my head!  I’m writing them in my head because I’m somewhere inconvenient like driving the…

It’s Been A Busy Summer

It’s Been A Busy Summer

It’s been May since my last post.  I’ve been a little neglectful but to be fair, it has been a busy summer.  Here’s what I’ve been up to since May. After my school job ended for a much needed summer break, I got to escape to the place that feeds my soul and fills me with peace and happiness… my hometown in Southern Idaho!  Doesn’t this just look like a little piece of heaven? While there, I got to do this!…

Memorial Day

Memorial Day

      It’s almost the end of the Memorial Day weekend but I wanted to make a quick post in remembrance and gratitude to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.  Also a huge thank you to their families who continue on in spite of their losses.  I saw several stories about those families today on the morning shows that had me in tears and several posts on social media about the true meaning of Memorial Day. Until I was…

My Grandma

My Grandma

I discovered this picture of grandma last summer and I think she is beautiful in it and it’s one of my favorites! On this Mother’s Day, I want to pay tribute to an amazing and inspirational woman; my grandma.  My grandma is an intensely private and humble person. She is not one to be the center of attention but has quietly lived her life and let others (especially her grandchildren) shine.  As a child I didn’t really see the incredible…

The Adventures of Sadie the Chiweenie: A New Feature

The Adventures of Sadie the Chiweenie: A New Feature

I am adding what I hope to be a regular feature on my blog. It is going to be about the adventures of my daughters one year old chihuahua/dachsund mix, Sadie. Sadie, is sassy, sweet, shy, friendly, feisty, nervous and most of all loving.  She loves her mama and to a lesser extent her grandma and grandpa (I call my husband and I grandma and grandpa grudgingly.  It was easier than fighting my daughter on it).  Most other people she…

New Name, Same Good Stuff!

New Name, Same Good Stuff!

    Sagebrush As many of you have now noticed or been informed or had it bashed over your head, I changed the name of my blog!  I did it mainly to avoid any conflict with “The Pioneer Woman” blog.  Now I have not received any type of cease and desist or communication but I am really hoping to grow my blog in the next year and didn’t want to have to deal with that somewhere down the road.  Not…

And Then There Was This…

And Then There Was This…

It’s standardized testing season for school kids and my school is no exception. We are in full swing and IT IS BRUTAL! I don’t know who is more stressed out from testing, the kids or the teachers. I am also starting to believe that it’s called testing, not because the kids take a test on their knowledge but because it tests the patience of every adult who comes in contact with the kids who are taking the tests! I’ve also…

Cream Cheese and Chicken Taquito-Burrito thingys

Cream Cheese and Chicken Taquito-Burrito thingys

  Do you like my title?  Is it descriptive enough?  I thought so, (note sarcasm here).  I didn’t really know how to categorize these so this is what I came up with!  I came up with these after eating something similar at Taco Time and thought, “I can do it better.”  These are pretty easy so I hope you try them and I hope you enjoy!   Recipe: 2 chicken breasts 1 or 2  8 oz. package cream cheese 1…
