As the new autumn season falls into our lives with promises of sweet apple pie, spooky pumpkins, cozy sweaters, and crisp cool breezes, it's time to reset our focus. Everyone is busy checking off one list after another, but being busy should not be an excuse to miss out on wonderful autumnal experiences. That... Continue reading

Oh my gosh, Betty, I am so pleased to hear this. Thank you for sharing. Keep me posted on your progress. Mary Shores' idea about "starting" has been helping me stay on track, too. Simple but powerful guidance!

Thank you, Robin. What a good idea about the pit... I will try that, too. I've done it with an avocado pit and grew a nice plant. LMK if it works for you.

When I say "mango ice made easy," I mean EEEEAAASY! This recipe serves up a tasty, full of flavor, sweet, refreshing treat. You'll wonder why you haven't made it before, I know I did! While mangoes aren't something I usually buy or cook with, I had a mango salsa over mahi-mahi recently that reminded... Continue reading

I'm enjoying some spa water as I'm replying to comments! There is something so enjoyable about these easy to make water blends. The added fruit and herbs takes plain old H2O to a whole new level. Glad you like this idea, thanks for commenting!

LOL! Glad to hear it. Thanks for commenting. Slowing down really does add to the enjoyment of whatever it is you are doing.

That is ambitious, Michelle! So glad this idea has inspired you. My book reading has also increased because I added a few that have been on my shelf to my summer fun list. It's working!!

Thanks Lynn! I like to watch the squirrels... And yes, kids are great sources of inspiration. I've been checking my list off each week. Still a lot left to do but enjoying each item.

There are those of us who are either water drinkers or not... If you are, spa water will entice you to drink more water, and if you aren't, you'll be pleasantly surprised how quickly sweetened beverages lose their sparkle. Spa water, AKA water infused with fruit, vegetables, and herbs, is a wonderful, refreshing, less... Continue reading

Thank you, Joe! I am glad you like the Chick Flick Chat, and the movie ;) Yes, I think it is getting a bit bashed, the reviews are strangely negative with little appreciation for what is good about this film. I'm planning on doing more CFC's on a regular basis. Hope you'll listen again soon.
1 reply
Oh, Thank you! The film is decent, and it has a lot of well produced aspects. A lot of the reviews are really bad, but I don't think it falls to that level. Definitely worth watching once.

In this Sofia Coppola directed film, the Civil War sets the stage for a complex attempt to examine the relationships between men and women, their roles, stereotypes, and desires. Join me as I discuss The Beguiled, starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning, and all its many layers that could have... Continue reading

Remember when you were a kid at this time of year, sitting in the classroom, daydreaming about what the summer would be like when school got out? Why not do that now? Daydream about what the upcoming months could be like for you, allow yourself to remember that excitement and expectation of feeling free... Continue reading

If you have a kitchen, you have wooden utensils somewhere in your utensil drawer... From spoons, gadgets, knife handles, to cutting boards and egg cups, those wooden items need a little extra TLC to stay in tip-top shape. If you are like me, and often put wood into the dishwasher - I know it... Continue reading

Well this is a good question Anne... I've been thinking about it. First, there is always a risk with anything but I think you should be fine by following all of the article steps BUT I would highly recommend using a washing machine that does NOT have an agitator in the center. So either a front loader or one without the agitator but still a top-loader (this is the type I have and use for all my cashmere). Second, if the shawl is too big for a pillow case, do you have a twin size duvet cover? That would work like a giant pillowcase to house the shawl. If not, then I'd chance it, if you are willing to take the chance, and put it in without the cover -- definitely on the gentlest cycle for wash, and spinning. AND I'd add a few clean cotton pillow cases (ones that won't add lint to the shawl) to buffer it during the washing process. Please let me know what you choose to do and how it turns out. Thanks for reaching out. :)

@Lynn: Oh, I am so glad to hear this... It is worrisome at first until you know how to was the cashmere with this process. I just washed a bunch to put away for the season. TU for letting me know, I love to hear good results!!
