Nineteen Trips

Nineteen Trips Around the Sun

Davis successfully came skidding around the sun one more time and reached his 19th birthday!  Happy birthday to a creative, sweet, funny, smart guy!  Lots of love to my little Doodlebug! We first met for dinner at LaParilla in Rome. Mikayla joined the frolic.  My attempts to chronicle the evening were met with this…. and […]

Gracious New Year's Resolution

New Year’s Resolution

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution? I did not. However, today I received an email from a colleague and she is having her students do a one word resolution.  Sounded interesting to me.  There is a hashtag on Twitter where people are sharing their one word resolutions.  It is #myoneword.  The purpose is to […]

Walk of Doom

Walk of Doom

I want to share these photos of a walk I took the other day.  I have been cooped up inside decorating, undecorating, cooking, or shopping so I decided to get outside and enjoy our unseasonably warm weather.  I went to Lake Peachtree and took a walk around the lake. It is typically about an hour walk […]

Thanksgiving 2016

Thanksgiving 2016

We celebrated Thanksgiving a little bit after the fact last Sunday.  My brother and sister-in-law and niece came for the afternoon as did one of Olivia’s friends.  We had a grand time eating and playing games before all the college kids headed back to school. I didn’t get a picture of our table setting although […]

Craft Day #4

Craft Day #4

I’m back.  I take a break but I always come back.  I miss my blog and my readers, so here I am.  You are probably wondering why I take breaks.  That’s a hard question to answer since I do enjoy it so much but it mostly is a time issue.  It takes me a long time […]

Lunches, Pirates, and Cowboys

Lunches, Pirates, and Cowboys

As I mentioned in my last post, this was my final week of summer vacation.  As teachers, we admittedly have a sweet deal in the summer with 8 weeks off (keep in mind we don’t have paid vacation, just weeks off so it probably isn’t all that “sweet” of a deal, however financial semantics aside, […]

Battle Bots and Pokemon

Battle Bots and Pokemon

Who knew that this week would provide such contrasts in the world?  We have been astounded at the world-wide excitement for the new PokemonGo game while at the same time astonished at the evil in the world and the slew of terroristic acts that have taken place.  While my heart is saddened by the deaths of so […]

While You Watch

While You Watch

My brother has skills.  Among his many talents, he can repair and make jewelry.  I went to his shop recently and took a few photos while he worked. He advertises while you watch jewelry repair so I took it literally and photographed him on the job. Hmmmm There’s something adolescently satisfying about seeing your brother caged. Ha Ha! Today […]
