Anne's Musings

Body
I must confess that it has been a struggle for me to decide what to write this week. In fact, this morning, I found it more engaging to consider cleaning out my catch-all kitchen drawer (ugh) instead of deciding what I wanted to write about! Bottle can lids, old spatulas, the detritus of years of cooking seem more appealing than considering this last week and a half in the U.S. of A!!

Change Your Life!

Body
There is much talk about changing the world. There are many things about the world that I would like to change. The truth is, I have little power to affect the world, but I can change me. And if I change me, I will impact those around me, which will impact those around them. A ripple effect for positive change will happen, and it could start with me. My decision. My resolve. How is this possible for a person?

Notes from the Spring Creek Arts Guild

Body
There is an Instagram account I follow, @IAmBaker—a food blogger named Amanda Rettke. I enjoy her posts because she shares pictures and recipes of the most scrumptious looking sweets, but also because of her wry sense of humor. A few months ago she started posting short skits where her character is Shirley, a person who answers the phone at the fictitious Your Content is Terrible Hotline. In these skits, Shirley listens to complaints callers have about the content on various blogs, mostly food blogs, sympathizes cheerfully with the caller, then always ends with “I’ll be happy to file a report on your behalf!” The complaints are always ridiculous, at least to me, and evidently to Amanda, but the callers are quite serious about them. The unsettling part is that Amanda bases each of these skits on actual complaints she or other bloggers have received.

The Little Dog that Seemed so Sweet

Body
It started with a phone call and one of my children asking, “Dad can I leave my dog with you and mom for a couple of days and my best friend’s two little dogs?” As you know, it is hard to say no to your children.
