Angels wear white

Posted 11/24/2012 in Columns

One big holiday is over. I suppose we are all thankful for that.

 

Southern gardening: Kale, cabbage jazz up winter landscapes

Posted 11/24/2012 in Columns

If you haven't started planting your winter color, rest assured that it's not too late.

 

Local landscapes: Beautiful holiday plants

Posted 11/24/2012 in Columns

Thanksgiving has passed and the holiday season is upon us. You may have noticed this by the tightening of your waistline. As we say in our home, there is no such thing as too much dessert. Anyway, now it is time to begin with our holiday decorations.

 

 

Being beautiful: Beautiful tidings of silver and old

Posted 11/24/2012 in Columns

Perhaps it's those little chocolate silver bells that my brother and I would stuff into our pockets as tiny boys, or the glistening silver tinsel with which Mama dressed our childhood tree for the holidays. Maybe it's just this time of year, but it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas to me.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Thanks, anyway

Posted 11/17/2012 in Columns

This week we are making lists of all the things for which we are thankful. Most of us will include friends, family and possibly a few material items, as well.

 

 

{Nourish} Don't drop the ball: Staying on track during the holidays

Posted 11/17/2012 in Columns

Well, people, the holidays are officially upon us. Where did this year go?

 

 

Being beautiful: From turkey and dressing to bouffants and rouge

Posted 11/17/2012 in Columns

Pass the turkey and all the trimmings!

 

 

A stone's throw: Smart phone

Posted 11/17/2012 in Columns

Two of my daughters visited me recently, and I got ambushed. I had been toying with the idea of getting a smart phone, and they called my bluff.

 

Southern gardening: Certain fall blooms welcome butterflies

Posted 11/10/2012 in Columns

It requires planning ahead in the spring, but one way to add color and life to fall gardens is to welcome butterflies.

 

Being beautiful: Hail to the real chiefs

Posted 11/10/2012 in Columns

With the election still on every American's mind, whether you bleed red or blue, it's true that history has given us some memorable first ladies.

 

 

{Nourish} Slave to the scale

Posted 11/10/2012 in Columns

This week marks a very special anniversary. One year ago, upon losing 60 pounds the healthy way, through clean eating and plenty of exercise, I conceived the idea to use my continued weight loss journey to help and inspire others struggling with the same thing, and thus {Nourish} was born.

 

 

Annunciations

Posted 11/3/2012 in Columns

Politicians certainly must be on a higher plane than most of us will ever be. How else can you explain their direct line to God, and God's views on so many subjects?

 

{Nourish} Variety, the spice of life

Posted 11/3/2012 in Columns

If variety is the spice of life then you could say my life is pretty spicy.

 

A Stone's throw: Platitudes

Posted 11/3/2012 in Columns

Well, we vote Tuesday. I cannot recall when I have felt more scared of an election. I hope this country votes wisely, because we are at such a low economic state. This country, like others, needs some relief from its problems and burdens.

 

Southern gardening: Enjoy golden thryallis in summer and fall gardens

Posted 11/3/2012 in Columns

A couple of years ago, I wrote about a new plant I found for the fall landscape called golden thryallis. We planted some in our landscape at Coastal Research and Extension Center in Biloxi, and I have it growing in a large container at my house.

 

Ghost stories for the new millennium

Posted 10/27/2012 in Columns

I looove Halloween. The cooler temps, mysterious shadows and, best of all, the chance to wear a costume. Anyone who has seen me this week knows that I started costuming on Friday.

 

 

{Nourish} The most annoying thing + the silver lining

Posted 10/27/2012 in Columns

I'm a pretty positive, optimistic person. I like to look on the bright side of life through rose-tinted glasses. I focus on the good and pretty much just ignore the bad.

 

 

Being beautiful: Remember to go trick-or-treating for yourself, too

Posted 10/27/2012 in Columns

When I was a young'un, it was the most magical time when I got all dressed up in costume and went door-to-door knocking for treats.

 

 

Adele Elliott: The zombie apocalypse

Posted 10/20/2012 in Columns

We have read much news lately about the "Zombie Apocalypse" that is about to invade our country on a rampage of brain-eating terror. I haven't seen any zombies stumbling down Columbus' Fifth Street or attending football games in Starkvegas. But the word is that they are on their way.

 

 

{Nourish} Love yourself, right now

Posted 10/20/2012 in Columns

I'm a girl's girl. A supporter, encourager and cheerleader of other women doing positive things.
