I’ve been missing in action a lot lately, haven’t I? I have good reasons. I really do. But most of those reasons have very little to do with this blog, so let’s just move on, shall we? I wasn’t able to squeeze much reading in before my above reasons slammed me to the ground and knocked me flat occurred, and I certainly haven’t been able to do much reading since, so I will just tell you what I was able to do before I went missing. I guess any reading is better than no reading, right? Right. Here is what…

Have you ever “fallen off the wagon”? You know what I mean, right? You had a plan, you had goals. Everything was going great. And then one day, you didn’t do the plan. And then you didn’t do it the next day. And the next. You end up in a puddle by the side of the “Road of Goals”. You fell off the wagon and you fell hard. Believe me, I feel your pain. The last 6 months of my life have been chaos. (Please tell me you can relate.) At first, I tried to keep up with all my…

Have you noticed that things have been a wee bit quiet at Gallimaufry Grove?  Me, too.  Sorry about that.  Let me make it up to you by telling you a little story about a certain pastor’s wife who let her mind wander during the sermon. Once upon a time (a few weeks ago), while my husband was skillfully preaching from Proverbs 14, I found myself thinking about beauty. To be more specific, I was thinking about Oxen, Horses and Beauty. That’s right, folks. Me. The pastor’s wife. I allowed my mind to wander during the sermon! But maybe the Lord was actually pointing…

  I have a new obsession.  I am falling head-over-my-pampered-heals in love with subscription boxes.  You pay a fee in exchange for a monthly or quarterly box of curated goodies.  The fee is usually lower, sometimes much lower, than the value of the products you receive.  It’s like a Birthday in your mailbox every.single.month.  *Squeal*  Ahem.  I meant to say — It’s tough work testing products, (cough) but I do it all for you.  You should feel sorry for how hard I’m working to rip open the box! There is a subscription box out there for practically everything.  My current…

I am 3 1/2 months in to a very awkward gray hair grow out.  Oh, I’m Rockin’ the Gray alright, as in, this grow out is very, very rocky. Sigh.  I loved henna on my hair right up until I decided to stop coloring.  Henna nourished my hair and made it incredibly shiny.  It was all good.  But now that I want to let my gray hair out of the closet, I find that there is really no way to get rid of the henna.  Apparently, it binds with the keratin protein in the hair.  Even if the henna you…
