I really like January. February (yes, I realize that it's February) is nice, but January? It's the month where I feel no guilt for procrastinating anything. If I want to put off finishing a project, I can. If I want... Continue reading

I'm a little over my head here, spread a little thin. It's Christmas. But just before Thanksgiving, when I was calm and at peace with my world, I happened to finish this year's prizes. IN THIS VERY SAME YEAR. Well,... Continue reading

Believe it or not, this year's prizes are partially done already. So perhaps I should mention that last year's are ready to go? A year-plus-late, but hopefully worth waiting for. Your own little diorama matchbox! In lovely Read For Fun... Continue reading

This particular discovery and obsession started on a trip to Los Angeles. My Richins cousins were kind - so kind - and invited me to join them at a beach house in Ventura. I grumbled about it being in LA... Continue reading

I had every intention of reading Treasure Island this time. Really. It's not too late, I suppose, but a few other books count. The latest Lockwood & Co. book is filled with children wielding swords against deadly ghosts, featuring the... Continue reading

Ha. I cried like a baby when I read The Penderwicks in Spring! But compared to Shakespeare and Neurotribes, definitely light and happy! Neurotribes sounds fascinating.

The report is out. Whew. Five years of teaching the early morning church class every day, followed by two years of this project, made for quite the character growth spurt. This weekend was one of my favorite weekends of the... Continue reading

It's a chant. You're lucky I didn't start singing the fight song. Or include it as background music on this post. BYU won their first football game of the season, against the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who are a lovely, gracious team.... Continue reading

It is, it is, a happy July! The work project that's been taking up my emotional time is now out the door (for the moment). I get to see some of the family later this month. The graphic design for... Continue reading
