Got Milk?

October 1, 2011

In the midst of my too busy workload, I just have to share this shot I managed to grab of Katrina. After I finished my evening glass of milk, she wanted the last drop. I promise to be back soon with more of Lava Lily’s blog. A hui hou!

“Wine and Words”

June 15, 2011

If you haven’t checked out Kona Stories, give yourself a treat and stop by. There is much more than books to be found as you cruise through, and comfy chairs where you can relax. Kona Stories was begun five years ago by Brenda Eng and Joy Vogelgesang. They recently moved from Mango Court to the […]

Katrina relaxing As a child, I only had one pet, a dog I named “Sugar.” This was in the days of WW II food rationing, and sugar was hard to get, just as the dog (when he would get under the house) was “hard to get.” After a few days, my parents decided we didn’t […]

Another Spring in Boise

June 7, 2011

As soon as Spring semester was over at the college, I took off for a week to visit my children on the mainland. I’ve posted photos of my daughter Inga’s garden in the past, but for the first time ever, I was there to enjoy it in person! One morning while she was at work, […]

Katrina’s Trick

December 27, 2010

Not long ago, I promised a video of Katrina playing fetch like a dog. It wasn’t something I had to teach her. She dropped her toy at my feet and sat there waiting for me to do something. I tossed it across the room and said, “Go play with it.” She got it and brought […]

Happy Halloween from Katrina!

October 31, 2010

When I checked my website this morning, I realized it has been over 2 weeks since I last posted something. Fall semester is my heaviest term, and as a result, school prep has come first. Now that we have passed the middle of the semester, I may be back on a regular basis again. On […]

Living on the Earth

September 18, 2010

This is an article I posted over two years ago on an old blog before I became “,” but there are some great books discussed here. I thought some of my new gardening friends might spot a book they want to read. Since I wrote this article, my beloved Kaimana has been put to rest, […]

Miss Katrina

September 6, 2010

I wonder how many people have named their children or pets “Katrina?” It’s a sweet name, although one we generally associate with a hurricane (and that might be appropriate whether for children or cats)! After my post on losing my beautiful Kaimana and another post later about my daughter’s cats, several people have called about […]

Cat Escapades

May 13, 2010

  Friends up the street needed to move but couldn’t take their cat along. “Tommy” was not the sort to be picked up, or taken willingly to a new home, anyway. So we thought I would be able to entice him down to my home, less than ¼ mile away. Gradually, I moved his feeding […]

Springtime in Boise!

April 10, 2010

  My daughter says that seeing everything come to life is what makes it easier to survive the cold, snowy winter months. No words are needed for this Salute to Spring, although I have to say that I’m envious of her soil. Enjoy and pretend this is the first time you’ve ever seen something like […]

Memorial For A Beloved Friend

February 13, 2010

  Over the past couple of years that I have been writing this blog, some of you have gotten a glimpse of my handsome black cat, Kaimana. In Hawai`ian, Kaimana means “diamond.” He was solid black with a little white spot under his chin like a diamond necklace. He’s been with me for about twelve […]

All Hallows’ E’en

October 31, 2009

  All Hallows’ E’en was the night before All Saints’ Day, a time when the deceased were honored. It was also a night when the ghosts and spirits of our “dearly departed” roamed the world, looking for a way back to their other world. This celebration was also known as Samhain (pronounced sow-in) and roughly […]

  Before you go scrambling for your dictionary, I’ll save you the trouble. The word “gallimaufry” originally came from the French and it was a hash made out of meat scraps. So that’s what today’s post is going to be – sort of a hash of miscellaneous items that I find interesting. After my post […]
