This has been a week. My sweet little Birdie only had a 3-day school week thanks to a faculty retreat. I may work at home, which sounds incredibly convenient when school is out – at least, it sounds convenient to everyone but me! There is still work to do. So, here we are, stumbling through […]

This week flew by in a haze of the usual flotsam and jetsam of life. Not much happened really, and yet each day was full of stuff. You know how it goes: life is in the little things, right? That’s what this week was – one big bowl of little things. So though I don’t have […]

Every January when I finally feel like I’ve recovered from the Holidays I look around and realize Valentine’s Day is suddenly just around the corner.

November is drawing to a close and all I can think about is stuffing and gravy. Maybe a few random thoughts for cranberries, and then a lot of ruminating about pumpkin pie.
