Did you know that the iMac has a fantastic voice dictation function? The reason I know this is I no longer have two good hands with which to type words. Yesterday I was taking a quick break from work to head out to my garage to clean out my car following a weekend road trip to watch my daughter play … Read More

What should I take pictures of now?

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life55 Comments


Someone recently asked me, “So Cathy, you have no little kids at home, one’s away at college, one’s camera shy… and you’re self employed. What do you take pictures of?” I have no freaking idea. Okay, not totally true, but consider this: I love projects like Ali Edwards Day in the Life. In fact, I feel like at this stage … Read More

Oh, October… you old so and so! Well, people, the Bee Dance for 2016 is now history. (What? You haven’t seen it? By all means, click here.) I decided to share it this year a) early, and b) on YouTube. I don’t post much to my YouTube channel. Years ago, I opted to use Vimeo because it seemed like the community … Read More

The Present Participle List for November

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life21 Comments


Savoring the strangely warm days of this early November. I know I’m not fooling myself. I live in Minnesota. The cold is coming, people. Eating this vegan soup recipe, like, a lot. No, I’m not becoming a vegan but honestly? If vegan food tastes this good, there needs to be more of it in my diet. Seriously though. This soup? … Read More

No buzz this Halloween

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life24 Comments


I did it. For the first time in 49 years, I made it through Halloween with no sugar. I know. Why would someone choose that? Even someone who admittedly has a problem with junk food?
