Nothing, nadda, nix

Kathy Krugerbalance, go with the flow, yinyang7 Comments

No words. It’s not wordless Wednesday, but it may as well be. Instead its five am, and it’s frustrating Friday, even though it shouldn’t be. So I’ll substitute a beautiful sunset shot! A picture says a thousand words – and this one is pretty bloody beautiful. I start this 94th post on my blog (I know pretty impressive) wondering if I’ll … Read More

18 years to life

Kathy Krugerbalance, happiness, harmony, love, yinyang13 Comments

I’ve come to the point in my life where the length of my marriage could be a prison term for murder. That makes me feel old, and our marriage feel somewhere between a life partnership and a life sentence. It’s all about balance right! One thing I know for sure, there has been a lot of yin and yang, waxing … Read More

poppy - Lest we Forget

A cliché for a blog post title – I wonder how that will come up in the search engines? But seriously, sometimes cliché’s really are true so deserve to be turned into blog posts. This one really rings true to me. The ANZACs (Australian and New Zealand soldiers for those who don’t know) were men of action and few words … Read More

Yin Yang Yummmmm

Kathy Krugerbalance, yinyang13 Comments

Are you hungry? Because I warn you that most people can’t resist the recipes I’m about to divulge. They should remain secret, in truth, since they are so well-loved. But I’m a sharing, caring kind of gal and this is by popular demand (I think) and certainly the proof is in the eating. Which is yummmmm. The love is in the … Read More

The sunrise and the bamboo

Kathy Krugeryinyang11 Comments

It was a beautiful morning this morning, and when Little Yang weasled his way into our bed I decided not to spend too long stuck in the middle of the sandwich (actually sleeping with him is more like being in a tossed salad). So I got up and was rewarded with this stunning sunset.

Yinyangmother traits (good) not necessarily mine

Kathy Krugerbalance, guilt, motherhood, yinyang12 Comments

Yin and yang can mistakenly be taken to mean bad (that’s supposedly yin) and good (supposedly yang). But in reality there is ‘good’ or ‘positive’ yin and ‘good’ or ‘positive’ yang. And then there are ‘bad’ versions of both. It’s all relative. Actually it’s all about balance and excess. The worst place to be is actually when we allow either … Read More

broken hourglass half full

It was bound to happen – my hourglass (well actually half-hour glass) smashed and thousands (maybe millions) of the finest black grains of sand spilt and scattered amongst the shards of glass on my desk. Boisterous three year old boys and hourglasses don’t mix (they don’t really go with anything breakable, even though they are very precious). I heard the … Read More

Yin Yang Yum, foods to balance by

Kathy Krugerbalance, yinyang1 Comment

When it comes to eating, balance is very good. A balanced diet, of the food group variety, for our good health – a balance of flavours, for the yum factor. And if you’re a contestant on a cooking show or just out to impress, your meal has to look balanced on the plate.  Because we don’t just dish up dinner anymore, … Read More

Love the person, not the reflection

Kathy Krugeradoption, love, motherhood, yinyang2 Comments

As my children are adopted, they don’t look like me (and luckily for them haven’t inherited my funny feet). I look at them with love (of course) even though I can’t see my physical resemblance in them – or perhaps because I can’t. So I am free to pile on the praise about how beautiful my daughter is (skin deep) … Read More

Feeling fine, whatever the weather

Kathy Krugerbalance, change, contentment, yinyang2 Comments

Where I live it feels like it’s been raining cats and dogs and circus animals for the last month! And we haven’t even copped the worst of it. For those of us in Queensland and New South Wales (Australia) it feels like we’ll never see fine weather again – so how can we feel fine? The grey makes you feel gloomy, the … Read More

Love the gifts of Hindsight and Foresight

Kathy Krugeradoption, change, contentment, go with the flow, IVF, perspective, yinyang3 Comments

In the end, the journey was as long as it needed to be. It sounds like one of those poignant closing lines from an epic story of love and adventure, the fairy tale kind with twists and turns and hopes of a happy conclusion dashed around every corner, until the narrative rounds that very last bend, the orchestra reaches its … Read More

Hate – that four letter word

Kathy Krugerfear, perspective, yinyang4 Comments

Would you be any more shocked if I started this post with FUCK – another four letter word I know I shouldn’t say, but still let slip sometimes? SORRY. I just can’t believe I feel compelled to write about HATE – a word I hardly ever used until it started creeping insidiously into my (mostly silent) vocabulary a few years … Read More
