Normally I try to keep my kids out of my writing as I want to respect their right to privacy. There are just some things that I have to share. Of all the people in my life, my daughters are the most incredible women I know. Yes, I know I'm their mom so I'm supposed … Continue reading Mom Bragging Moment (or several)
The new year has started with more snow on the ground. It seems like a great day to snuggle in, watch movies, have soup, and just be quiet. Of course I will be crocheting as well. My to do list is ever growing for crocheting. I like it that way.For the past two years I’ve … Continue reading New Year
The year is waning, winding down to the calendar end of year. More than that though it is a time when we have harvested all of our items – whether from the garden or from our lives.

It is VERY exciting to me to be published in a national magazine. Granted it is a very … Continue reading Published!
My semester started with a visit from Stephanie, two new classes, and lots of work. It has been a crazy three weeks. I have a grammar class and publication development class. I like both of them and they are almost completely opposite. The grammar class is very structured, with deadlines, quizzes, and dates for everything. … Continue reading Catch Up
In just under two weeks, I start my last two classes. When this semester is done, I will have earned my second degree. I'm both excited for this and a little sad. I won't be crazy busy all the time once I'm done with this degree. I looked at master's programs and none of them … Continue reading New – Last – Semester of Classes
The semester is done. I think I’ll end up with one A and one B. If I’m lucky the B might be an A-. I’m glad it is done and I learned nothing from my science class that I will use or remember and some good things from my Prose Stylistics which I’ll use when … Continue reading Done…
