My photo isn't the best quality. I was struggling with timing and a lens change, and - as things happen- the moment was over before I had everything in place. It happens. We'd lost to Hartland twice this season, and... Continue reading

My husband is fifty-one today. Greg doesn't show up on here very much. He doesn't have social media, he's not a game chaser like I am, and he can most often be found out in his garage working with his... Continue reading

Pandemic banquets are weird. Both boys had events last night. Brian had an archery award ceremony last night - zoom style. They had to be present to win. Or not. As the slide show began, I was wondering if we... Continue reading

Yearbook I've lost track of how many years I've put together our elementary yearbook, my favorite and my most anticipated (by me) project of the year. It's a project that brings together all my favorite things: photography, design and tedious... Continue reading

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.... Continue reading

I remember when my mom was raising kids and working, she'd often remark that she wished that Sunday and Saturday were reversed. Her wish was that as the day of rest, Sunday came first. I reflect on that comment a... Continue reading

The first swim meet of the season is in the books. It's a weird feeling as we're coming around to where we left off last year. Last year we had a few swim meets in when the world suddenly stopped.... Continue reading

Dear Wendy, Like last week, this is (obviously) for everyone to read. Letter writing has always been my favorite way to write - so this is what comes easiest when things are really busy and my writing side is bursting... Continue reading

My family has been on me about my lack of blogging lately. Wendy is claiming that her refresh finger is wearing out. So, I'm writing this in letter writing format as it's a style of writing I've always enjoyed, but... Continue reading

During last night's evening conversations, Mark related a class incident from last week wherein a girl was dumped via text. During class. Mark: ..... and I was the only boy in the class, and I was sitting in the corner... Continue reading

Last Sunday we took the day to head up to Frankemuth's Snowfest. Both Brian and Mark caught onto this backwards Statue of Liberty quickly and at the same time. Mark figured he better stand in the correct pose for a... Continue reading

This week was pretty uneventful, with a few feel good moments imbedded throughout I went back to my own schedule this week, which now has me getting off work at 2, rather than 4:30. I'm enjoying getting home before the... Continue reading

I'm feeling all sorts of grown up and adulty tonight, all because I made Brussels sprouts to go with our dinner. When I was a kid, we were allowed to choose one food that we didn't have to eat if... Continue reading

For Christmas, I bought Greg a new desk. Since working from home last March, he's been working off one of those molded plastic folding tables set up in our bedroom. It does the job, and he's not one to complain,... Continue reading

My job each day revolves around PowerSchool. It's the base for everything I do. It's used for attendance, scheduling, reports, addresses, grades, finding a student's homeroom and the list goes on. It doesn't crash often, but when it does, well... Continue reading

Just a little this and that: This coming week should go further to bring my living room project together. My desk is on track to be completed (more on that later), my new bookshelf should arrive and I should have... Continue reading

Today is the last day of our holiday break. Tomorrow it's back to school, and the first day of the second semester. The Governor has deemed that the high school kids shall be allowed to return to in-person instruction at... Continue reading

This is one of the last cross stitch projects that I did, quite a few years ago already, and I've pulled it out recently with the intention of finally framing it. I'm stacking up some winter projects. Winter has me... Continue reading

I'm 53 today. Thank you for all the birthday wishes. It was a busy, full day at work and I wasn't able to respond to them all individually, but I appreciated each and every one. Here are 53 completely random... Continue reading

So much for improving my blogging. It was a busy week. Wendy and Kirk headed back to Minnesota last Monday, and I began working more hours at school until we get a new librarian hired. I work until 4:30 now... Continue reading

Happy Thanksgiving! It's been a busy few weeks. Greg was gone for an off the grid nine day hunting trip (no buck this year), in which time - the state shut down again, I tackled a water leak in the... Continue reading

It's funny to me (I admittedly have an odd sense of humor) that last night I blogged about the kids at yesterday's birthday get together playing their made up game of Covid Tag, and today I saw the high school... Continue reading

Seventy plus degrees in Michigan in November. How is that a thing? I'll take it. I'm enjoying it. But how is that a thing? I've gone on two hikes this week. I'm not adjusting to the time change and early... Continue reading

It's Election Day. It's here. I pray for patience. I pray for the safety of my friends and family. I pray for understanding. I pray. I've signed up for a webinar, and I was thankful that it was offered this... Continue reading

photo taken 9/21/20 @ Greenfield Village Anyone else up an hour earlier than their normal today? It doesn't bother me too much. I enjoy the peace and quiet of the morning. This is when I think, catch up, make lists,... Continue reading
