365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 172: Before “Eggs, Dinosaurs and Chicken Necks”…

RUCSANDRA's PICTUREBefore all of that came Digger…

I want you to enjoy some more fun and giggles with me.

Two days ago I wrote about Nicola Bird’s culinary endeavors and her blog “NIC’S KITCHEN: Food, Family, Life & Other Stuff”.

My post was thoroughly enjoyed so I know you will have fun with this one too; especially if you know and love dogs.

Let me introduce you to Nicola’s dog, Digger: “Uh Oh, I’m In Trouble Here…

Digger makes a cameo appearance every once in a while in Nic’s Kitchen. He actually has his own button at the top of the blog entitled “Digger’s Diary”.

Well, read his posts when you need an instant pick me up and some laughter.



365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 170: Things That Make Me Giddy


I read a lot of things throughout the day and get inspired, challenged, thoughtful or introspective.

This is my area and I am comfortable with introspection and connection with myself and others.

However, there are very few things that make me instantly lighter with laughter.

I want to share one with you today, because I just read it right now and it made me giddy.

Meet Nicola Bird: Successful Entrepreneur, Blogger, Coach, Wannabe Chef, Wine-Drinker, Wife, Mother of 3 humans, 2 cats, 6 fish and 1 totally mental dog.

I met Nicola briefly over coaching calls as she was ending a business coaching program when I was just starting it, so we never really met face to face, but have been following her food blog, which brings me joy.

Nicola started her food blog as an experiment as she is taking cooking lessons.

It is entitled “NIC’S KITCHEN: Food, Family, Life & Other Stuff”. It is witty, funny, real and I enjoy reading it.

Today’s post is entitled “Eggs, Dinosaurs and Chicken Necks“.

How can you NOT read it?
