In Which We Drink Tea

March 28, 2019

Saturday was by far my favorite day of all. And not just because it was THE day. From the time my feet hit the floor, it was nothing but joy. It started with coming downstairs to seeing Todd, Taylor and Katie laying around, watching The Office. Because what else do you do the morning of…

In Which There Are Irish Dancers

March 24, 2019

Friday morning began the execution of the logistical quagmire we were faced with. I had played the sequence of events in my head over and over, and Todd and I navigated the schedule to perfection like two four-star generals. This is probably a good time to explain that neither our family, nor the groom’s family,…

Diary of a Wedding

These past two weeks have been two of the busiest, most stressful weeks of my life. All good, though! My little girl got married last Saturday and we couldn’t be happier. But let me back up just a little. I realize it’s been five months since I wrote my last post. The post that informed…

Back At It

October 28, 2018

I’m back. Again. Did you miss me? No? I didn’t figure you did, but I thought I’d ask anyway. A lot has happened in the year since my last spellbinding post. For one thing, I lost the database to my blog when I switched hosts. Thankfully I had a backup, but my images didn’t transfer…

Parking Lot Heroics

September 25, 2017

I went to the grocery store today for what seemed like the first time in about a year. I couldn’t even get mad at people who said, “There’s nothing to eat,” because, well, there was nothing to eat. Last week was rough around here. For me, anyway. It was full of painting and then some…

Epic Fail ~ September 2017 edition

September 15, 2017

You know how I’m always saying I need to get my act together? No? Well, I do. I say it all the time. And do you know why I say it all the time? Because my act is so far from together it’s absurd. Let me give you this ridiculous example. I was enjoying some…

Boston and Baseball (and No Blood)

September 12, 2017

If you read THIS POST, then you know Todd and I went to Boston last week to meet up with a dear friend of ours from long ago and his family. Ed (he will always be Eddie to me, but I’ll tell my story with the grown up version of him) is probably the non-family…

Blood, Boston and Baseball

September 3, 2017

Yesterday as I was picking up the living room (which is code for I was sitting in the comfy chair, playing a game on my phone and strategizing the pick up in my head), Todd came in from the garage, holding a ginormous wad of paper towels around his hand and said, “I may need…

Where I Find God

August 28, 2017

This morning was cool and crisp and sunny and beautifully unusual for August. I enjoyed two cups of coffee, Facebook, Instagram, Bible study, a crossword puzzle, reading and a little writing outside. I think I could have stayed in the hammock all day, but alas, responsibilities awaited me inside. Part of the reason I didn’t…

Working on the Job

June 30, 2017

I am currently in somewhat of a work lull and I think I like it! I haven’t been pursuing new customers because I’m in the tweaking stages of a few current clients and this allows me to spend more time on Grace & Such. That said, if you are contemplating starting a website or blog,…
