DIY by mary elizabeth

People say that the sooner you learn that no one’s going to take care of you but yourself, the better. Well – okay – this is a good thing to keep in mind and a fabulous fall back position, but in my experience it just isn’t true. Thank goodness. I mean, I know I’m the [...]

Instant Replay by mary elizabeth

Hey – if you missed it in August, you can still see Living Light’s 2010 Chef Showcase by purchasing the replay available now on our website! We all wrote so much about it while it was actually happening, I kind of feel like posting the blog equivalent of a flashback episode and just pasting in [...]

Harvest by hilloah

This weekend we harvested as many veggies as possible: pumpkins, green and yellow zucchinis, tomatoes, red bell peppers, jalapeños, and our dahlias. We still have lots of winter squash growing, garlic, green onions, chard, Red Russian Kale, lettuce, and cabbage. Though the pretty green worms got to the cabbages first, so we have decided to [...]

Brave New World and Victory Gardens by hilloah

If you read my blog last week, you heard about my Dad, and his journey in America. Today, as part of our Day of the Dead observance honoring our ancestors, I'll tell you a little about my mother. She was born Virginia Ruth Rowell, and when she was twenty-five (in 1938) she discovered a new religion [...]

Happy United Nations Day! by mary elizabeth

Today is United Nations Day. Not one of this country’s bigger commercial holidays, as discussed last week, by any means. But – what a significant global accomplishment! Many members have called for today to be observed as a global public holiday so as to draw attention to the work they do. UNICEF, the UN Human [...]

Honoring Our Ancestors by hilloah

Since my ancestors are at least half  Swedish, that makes me a Scandinavian, and one of my favorite places to visit in California is the Danish village of Solvang .  There is so much to see and enjoy. One of the best places to shop is  Nordic Knives : they have knives and swords. It is [...]

Our Second Favorite by mary elizabeth

Did you know that Halloween is this country’s second largest commercial holiday? I didn’t, but am happy to learn it. I mean, if our holidays must be commercial I’d just as soon we spend our money on skeletons and false eye lashes than anything else. Anyhow – I like our big commercial amalgam of a [...]

My Favorite Season by hilloah

It is hard to work today. Fall is my favorite season and the picture on my desktop is the epitome of dusk, towards the end of the day.  I want to be home to decorate for fall. Pumpkins, corn husks (yum, our corn was good tasting this year – not too much, but very good), [...]

Are We There Yet? by mary elizabeth

You know how certain strains of philosophy encourage us to enjoy the journey rather than fret about the destination? I think that’s a way better system than the more “end result” based ones, but it takes some practice. Sometimes it just doesn’t come naturally at all. I do my best, but if my mood isn’t [...]
