Mom Bragging Moment (or several)

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)

New Year

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

Yule or Winter Solstice

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.  Now we are facing the darkness of winter – allegedly this is a slower time.  However, in our … Continue reading Yule or Winter Solstice

Catch Up

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

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…
