Five (+1) On The Day After Friday

I was on the run all day yesterday and the only chance I had to do my Five on Friday post (3rd edition) was as I was climbing into bed last night, but I would have had to do it on my iPhone and there was no way that was happening. So I’m changing things…

Did You Say 2011??

I’m having a hard time conceiving of the notion it’s 2011. I know I say this every year, but where the heck did the last twelve months go?? As far as years go, 2010 was a pretty good one for us.  Taylor saw the most milestones – turning 18, graduating from high school and going to…

Thankfulness – Day Twenty-Two

I have a lot to be thankful for today. We had our Thanksgiving dinner this evening because Katie is getting her wisdom teeth out tomorrow. I’m thankful I have both my kids home this week.

Parenthood. “But Jenster, people don’t get paid for being parents so it can’t be a profession.” Au contraire, mon frere. Parents may not…

Whidbey Island: A Photographic Tour – Island Living – Friday

Following our adventurous morning on the beach we all kicked back at the house for a while – napping, reading, whatever – and then prepared to go into town. I think we clean up purty good. Gretchen drove us to the quaint town of Langley. We made dinner reservations and then explored up one side…

Whidbey Island: A Photographic Tour – The Beach

As I mentioned in my last post, I took over 1200 pictures. Some great, some horrible, most tolerable. Don’t worry. I won’t share them all. That would be like going to great Uncle Horace’s house and watching his vacation slides. Great for insomniacs, bad for blog readers. I am going to break them up, though.…

The Party’s Over…

Last night I caught the red eye out of SeaTac for a non-stop to Philly where I landed around 7:00 this morning. Which was 4:00 AM to my Pacific Time Zone adjusted self. Thankfully I have nothing to do today other than sleep, readjust and download over 1200 pictures Precious blessed me with. Not 1200…
