The History of Blogging

August 14, 2021

Can we talk about blogging? I’m coming up on my 15-year anniversary of blogging and boy, has it ever changed. When I first started, it was shortly after we had moved from Arkansas to Pennsylvania and it was a good way to keep people apprised of our new life. I wrote rich prose about food,…

So Many Books, So Little Time

August 10, 2021

Once upon a time, I was a voracious reader. Maybe not as much as some people, but I did a pretty good job of ripping through anywhere between four to eight books a month. Though come to think of it, that could be a conservative number because I remember reading as many as four or…

When God Has To Repeat Himself

July 25, 2021

I’ve heard it said that sometimes God tells you something, then He tells you again, and then one more time for good measure. I suppose that’s so it sinks in. When I do that, I’m just nagging. But since He’s God… We’re going through the book of Philippians in church and are currently in the…

It’s Nice We’re Having Weather

July 23, 2021

Instead of addressing the elephant in the room, I’m going to talk about the weather. You know the elephant of which I speak, don’t you? It would be the fact that I haven’t written on my blog for over two years and, shamefully, never even finished the accounting of Katie’s wedding. I have a ton…

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…
