Throwback Post: Book Musings: Tibetan Tales for Little Buddhas


December 3 2015:

Another book that Team TLC really enjoyed … “Tibetan Tales for Little Buddhas”!

Simple, enchanting tales that give a glimpse into Tibetan culture, sharing inspiring wisdom relating to peace, gratitude and seeing with the heart. I was only going to read one per night. Thomas and Lilian loved it so much they did not want me to stop! We read all three in one night!

Great autumn sky 2014 …. So beautiful!


December 2 2013:

Thank you Manal Toppozada for having me come speak to your undergrad med class today at UNR again this semester. I so much enjoy giving students a parent’s view of advocacy for children with special needs and give them an opportunity to walk in our shoes, if only for a few minutes. This time they got the added benefit of seeing my eyes sweat when talking about receiving THE phone call … the one delivering the news when Lillian was 3 years old. Oops!! Guess I’m just in an eye sweating mood!!! Looking forward to next semester’s class! They ask such GREAT questions! xoxo


Trying my hand at dairy free eggnog … Tastes yummy so far!


I’m a wee bit late but here’s my Phantom Tea picture … Yummy sipping chocolate in the cute teacup I got in England back in 2000. This is The Registry’s annual fundraiser … if anyone would like to make a donation in Lillian’s name visit the website at http:\\ … Thanks tons y’all!

Throwback Post: Book Musings: How to Sit


December 2015:

Another wonderful and simple book I read to Thomas and Lillian … We all really liked it!

“Peace is Contagious

The energy of mindfulness can help improve your whole being. Just pay attention to your in breath. Allow it to be the way it is and you will see that the quality of your breathing naturally becomes calmer, deeper, and more harmonious all by itself. This is the power of simple recognition. When your breath is deeper and more peaceful, it will have an influence right away on your body and your mind. Peace and calm are contagious.”

Throwback Post: Library Days With Blessings and the Car Manual


December 27 2015:

Team TLC Library Day … Ventured out to Spanish Springs since it’s been so long since we last visited. Beautiful library! Found some good stuff!!


December 27 2014:

Books for the LOVE of it … Enjoying our library time!


December 27 2013:

A truck to use for moving, a job offer, another potential job opportunity, several writing opportunities, a blog set up, a place to stay with another family if needed, and $8,414 … in just 2 weeks of creating and sharing my blog post. My heart and soul overflow with gratitude and love for all y’all! I am staying open to all opportunities, blessings and miracles that arise. I will be creating a monthly package for ongoing blog maintenance as soon as I get this house packed. More purging and packing today and dropping off an application for an apartment. I like that the give away pile is growing bigger than the keep pile!


December 27 2012:

I sure am glad that cars come with these handy little books that tell you how to do “stuff” with the car. Oil, transmission fluid and coolant all checked today. That poor baby was thirsty, needed oil and antifreeze.


December 27 2010:

Thomas was eating chips and picante sauce with me. Said “Mmmmm, this is good! I’ve got hot sauce tongue” – and then kept on eating and eating and eating it! Gotta get this kid down to a real crawfish boil one day soon and see how he likes that!
