This weekend we engaged in a local Women's March. This local march was one of hundred's of sister marches to the giant one being held in Washington, D.C. My original plan had been to travel to Atlanta to march, but change starts locally and I was super excited to find that we had our own… Continue reading Resist
When I was sorting through all the stuff in my craft room, I came across a fair number of unfinished projects. Unfinished projects make me feel a little overwhelmed so I turned to the wisdom of folks on FB. Seriously. An open question on FB is a great way to get some pretty spot on… Continue reading F.O.
I've been wanting to write this post for ages but didn't want to even start it until I had something cool to share. Now I have something cool!! I've wanted to paint/organize my craft room for ages. Now that's it's my office as well, I *really* want to change it up. Over the Christmas holiday… Continue reading Finally!
I've been thinking a lot about this year ending. I feel as though I've ended the last couple of years saying something like, "Wow. This was the worst year ever." It might be time to flip the script on that observation. Let's just get this out of the way; 2016 was godawful for my little… Continue reading The End is Near
Wow. It's only Wednesday and this week has been a real doozy! I work from home and yesterday my access to the internet crashed and crashed hard. I could answer emails, small tasks that don't take up a lot of bandwidth, but anything big, (like doing my job) I was completely locked out of. So… Continue reading Thanks

El almost never gets sick, never been hospitalized, never broken a bone, never got a concussion...it's like she lives in a… Continue reading Health
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place, and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing, fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead; short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In… Continue reading In Flanders Fields
I'm having a tough time. The election did not go the way I'd hoped. In any other election cycle the loss wouldn't feel so personal. This one is different. The winner has so many faults and flaws and not a single thing to qualify him for public office. He's also more than willing to wipe… Continue reading Struggle
A few decades ago, a well-known comedian once mused that the United States was a bit like the Jethro of the international community, rope belt and all. Jethro was big, clumsy, and didn't always say or do the right thing but always offered his goofy smile and a willingness to help. It's an accurate comparison;… Continue reading Jethro
Today I am thankful for this woman and the women who came before and after her. I added a link to this image. Follow it and you will find a Wikipedia page filled with the names of women from all over the world who struggled for our rights. Don't let them down. Don't let their… Continue reading Vote
