Phew! It has been a couple of weeks since I had the chance to post! Let’s just say that October got very busy, very quickly! I’d forgotten, over the past 19 months, how busy school schedules can be. I can take a little relief from the fact that the kids’ schools are close enough that […]

Spooky season is really upon us now! Pat has been wanting to decorate the outside for Halloween–I told him to go for it, but nothing has been done yet. We decided to let the kids go trick-or-treating this year. At first, Pat was wary and then we realized that they are in public school and […]

As I write this, I feel like I’m totally in the depth of fall. The trees are all changing color and we’re having some wild (for the Pacific Northwest, where pretty much a breeze is wild) autumnal weather. We even had HAIL today!

I’ve talked about it all summer, but today I finished it! My library has an adult Summer Reading Program (which is AWESOME!) and this year’s was a Bingo game. Of course, me being me, just getting Bingo wasn’t enough…I had to get blackout! And today, with one day to spare, I did it! This will […]

Guess what! It isn’t Sunday! I normally post my reading updates on Sundays, then I realized that I was having trouble finding the time during the day to write up the posts. So, I’m switching my update days to Fridays. Of course, I’ve missed a few weeks, so this one is a big catch up […]

Well…long time, no see! I didn’t mean to take such a long break, it just sort of happened. Last week, we were out of town (more on that below) and the weeks before that were just instances when time got out of hand. It’s hard to believe we are already in August. Of course, it […]
