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,…

Way Back Wednesday – About Another June

June 28, 2017

I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that this particular June was four years ago. It doesn’t seem like it could have been more than a couple of years, but alas, it was and so much has happened since then.

Way Back Wednesday – About A Water Heater

June 21, 2017

We are currently in Bar Harbor, no doubt enjoying all the blueberry things. Todd and I came here about a year and a half ago, but it was a much different trip. First of all, it was just the two of us and now we have Katie with us. Secondly, Todd didn’t get a concussion…

Way Back Wednesday – About A Fiddle

June 14, 2017

I thought this would be an appropriate post for WBW this week. Last week I came across what is now my favorite quote by Martin Luther. Possibly my favorite quote, period. It inspired this picture of my family bible and my grandfather’s fiddle. “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is…

Way Back Wednesday ~ Feeling Gypped

June 7, 2017

While the snake post had the most comments, this post actually had the most hits. I was going to ignore that fact and not post it because it’s depressing. I was remarkably whiny the day I wrote it, but with good reason. And while I joke that my whining skills are exceptional – it truly…
