re: grief & pottery…

I’m no good at grief. … Really, I’m not. Or, perhaps I should say – I’m no good at polite, front-parlor, sorrowful-eyes, bring-a-casserole, hold-your-hand, murmur-platitudes grief. THAT I’m no good at. But I can rock the hell out of some get-drunk, scream-into-the-storm, curse-wildly, laugh-inappropriately grief. If that’s what’s required, I’m definitely the one for the … Continue reading

It’s no secret I’m Southern. I’ve been pretty clear about that in my posts. I’m not a transplant, I’m not a part-timer, I’m not a newbie. I was born in Alabama and moved to Georgia. Doesn’t get much more solidly southern than that – except maybe for my lovelies who live their entire lives in … Continue reading

And realizing it was my 100th, I didn’t want to just throw up a random picture or recipe (though I have a couple… omg so good – just wait!), I wanted to write something to mark this occasion.  Wasn’t too hard … Continue reading

detox 101

I was recently reminded about the best way to deal with toxic, negative people who insist on inserting themselves into your life after you’ve left them behind. Do Nothing. It really is that simple. When they pop back up, just do nothing. But you have to get rid of them first, and there is a … Continue reading

[Fair warning – I use a *bit* of colorful language in this one… deal or don’t read!] There’s a movie quote that would be great here, but I can’t for the life of me remember the movie… Guy & girl talking, and she (I think it was she) gets supremely frustrated and barks “Stop Apologizing!” … Continue reading

define: impossible…

“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.” ~ Tony Robbins I have been forced, recently, to truly evaluate what is and is not “impossible”. Turns out, there was a … Continue reading
