Kathryn’s Blog: White Flowers

Even though I think all flowers are beautiful, I like white best. I’ve been in the floral business for many years, and yes, colors are spectacular at times. But as an artist and designer, when I work with just white flowers, I am compelled to pay more attention to the

Kathryn’s Blog: Joe the Turtle Does Yoga

Yes, it has been dipping down into nearly double digits below zero outside, but my little pet of 29 years has been holding his own, in his own sunbeam. This is not a Photoshopped image—Joe regularly does this yoga stretch on his own. (It’s not because he’s seen me doing

Kathryn’s Blog: Christmas Family Time

Some Christmases really hold up to the test of time. Back in the day, all my in-laws and I would celebrate the day by first going bowling. There were 20 of us taking over the lanes. They were all good bowlers, but if I broke 100, I was thrilled. It

Kathryn’s Blog: Star Trek Chili

I’ve been on a very serious reduce-my-cholesterol diet, and I found this great “meatless ground” that really holds up to make a chili! It’s very healthy, and it cooks up very fast, too. I called it space chili at first (it could be created in outer space—ha ha) but then

Kathryn’s Blog: Magic 98’s Back Yard

This past Sunday morning when I arrived at the station about 5:45, I was greeted by two hooting owls talking to each other. They sounded so sweet in the soft morning air! We are lucky to have a bank of mature oak trees in our back yard. Lots of critters
