Glad you like the new format. I would have liked actually getting to talk about the House on Mango Street. I know the books we've read in my book club are so much - more - because we talk about them. I may not like it more but it definitely is memorable.

Carrie, thank you so much! It was such a spur of the moment project but with the help of an alarm on weekends it is going beautifully! I am trying to keep up each day and that is even working out. The clean and simple designs of these pages are my favorite.

I will send them when I get home. I don't have the file available right this moment.
I'll send them when I get home and have the file available.
Alexa, I saw SOMETIMES is a great one word prompt years ago as a way of capturing our stories. Try it! It's a great word prompt.

Alexa, I have learned that when changing our thoughts that we cannot simply let them go without replacing thoughts of better, such as gratitude, replacing fear.

Bless you Alexa! I actually applied for Ali's team but didn't make it. Maybe next year!

Thanks Alexa! I actually have never finished the class completely but I'm hoping this year will be different. Plus, I love my word.

I think LEGO is supposed to be spoken/written in the singular but we've always just said LEGOs, in the plural, that I never know which way to write it. It was so good to get back to digital and make a page! It took my grandsons forever to 'like' LEGO but I'm so glad they have finally come around to the light.

Sammie, my grandson, and I are getting there. He still pulls away when he's exhausted but his eyes light up when he sees me. I did go ahead and apply to the design team but I haven't heard a peep so I imagine I wasn't selected. And, that is okay.

Thank you so much for your kindness and encouragement. I still love digital and after doing some prep work for DD it was nice heading back into the digital realm.

Alexa, my heart skips with delight too! Thankful for your words.
I always head to your blog for your latest reads. You are one of my go-to 'book list' places I trust for recommendations. Beginning to put together a middle grade reading selection for my granddaughter and The Same Stuff As Stars and Jacob Have I Loved are going on the list. Congratulations on your baby!!!

Debbie, Your email came back non-deliverable. Just wanted to let you know I tried to send the lesson plans. Susan

Alexa, I think the 4th grade child in me attributed beautiful handwriting to left-handedness because my teacher made such a big deal out of it. Maybe she was over-compensating for all the times some parent or another teacher made a child switch to right-handed writing or eating.

Thanks so much Alexa. I always seem to add something to my to-do list, or bucket list, or want to get done list that requires some - participation - from the hubs. My expectations are often to high. Not necessarily bad - but not good either. Of the entire list it is the firepit that might not happen.

Thank you so much Alexa! I am enjoying making these pages, documenting what I've been reading, almost as much as the reading. I hunt reading blogs for books to add to my TBR and to fill my book shelves or put on hold at the library.

Thank you so much Carrie. I appreciate your kindness. It was such a great weekend.

Thank you Alexa! I must confess the page is a scraplift of an Ali Edwards page she made for her GO story kit. But, I love how mine came out, digitally, too.

Alexa, my term forever furniture is simply me hoping I don't have to buy furniture again - ever. When I bought the furniture I purchased the highest quality I could find with that in mind - I don't want to have to buy furniture again.
