Sarah was in the kitchen yesterday morning, startling me when she loudly exclaimed: "WORM!" Of course, it's not a worm, but a catepillar. And according to the info I found on the web (by googling YELLOW, GREEN, BLACK catepillar), it... Continue reading

I haven't had much time to think about what photo I might want to post today. I tried to decide whether I should just pick a drive and a folder and go from there. Then I thought..."Hmmm...what about that binder... Continue reading

Especially for how easily it allows you to see how patterns change over time. Yesterday, I was poking around my cable service provider's website. I don't go there often but I needed an answer on something, so I logged in... Continue reading

It's been a busy week with work and other things around here. I've been organizing my digi files as well as preparing for a wipe/reinstall-to-factory-settings of my computer. I always get *so* anxious about this process. I'm so worried about... Continue reading

Those of you who've known me for a while now, this probably won't surprise you. I believe that last week I was leaning toward using Monday's as my "Journal Jar" day. I will likely continue that but for today's entry,... Continue reading
