Hey there! Long time no blog! I'm still here. I log in every day, spin the wheel, enter my numbers for my 5% challenge, but that's about it. One more big holiday to go and then I can catch a breath. But I had to sneak away from my desk and a mou... Read more
1794: Sort of Historical
It was a beautiful day, I was waiting for stuff to upload on my computer, so Bubba and I snuck out for a walk and took you with us. Haven't had much time for blogging or vlogging lately. Audrey's birthday was yesterday. She turned 17 and we made... Read more

Week of Happy: Day 6
Today's happy is a wee bit tricky. There are a ton of germs flying around town right now, and one of them finally caught me. Nothing big, just the coughing, run-down, blah thing. Not a lot of happy there.
I had slated today for ... Read more

Buzzing in here, to leave my Big Happy for the day. I have work night with my crew and I know it will be a late one. So here's my happy for the day--

Week of Happy: Day 4
Right off the bat, my day started with Happy. I got a phone call at 5am, telling me that school was cancelled. I semi-woke Audrey up and told her, so she wouldn't get up half an hour later. She croaked, "Thank you, God," and went promptly back t... Read more
Week of Happy: Day 3
Yes, Monday is allowed to participate in the Week of Happy. (lol) Actually, I'm a big fan of Monday because it's my day off. It's the one day I'm usually guaranteed of finding more than ten minutes of "intentional happiness." So here's the rundo... Read more

Happy National Kazoo Day!
Yes, it's National Kazoo Day! Oddly enough, I didn't get the day off from work, but I managed to celebrate during my lunch break. Since it was such a special day, I bought myself a new, metal, trombone kazoo. I will now share my noisy, ruckus of... Read more
Secret Ninja Mission
I was going to post this earlier, but I got busy with work and forgot. This is simply a silly little, for fun, vlog. I just wanted to take you on a secret, ninja mission that Bubba and I took in our neighborhood.

Nothing Earth-Shattering, Just a Tiny Update
Happy New Year to you!!! I just came off of an incredibly relaxing, much-needed couple of days of rest. The week after Christmas is just about my favorite week of the year. I get to stop, take a breath, and give my brain a rest. Fun thing is, th... Read more
One-Woman Band, Jingle Bells
Ever since I saw Dick Van Dyke as Bert in Mary Poppins, I've wanted to be a one-woman band. I keep adding quirky instruments to my repertoire. Some of them can be played simultaneously, but not all. Until now. Modern technology has made it possi... Read more
Full Disclosure From Any Angle
Apparently, I've decided to stop blogging altogether. I just realized my last blog was at the end of September. Oops. For some reason, I've stopped receiving all notifications from Spark, so I feel like I've been flying blind. Hopefully, I can f... Read more
Trekking Back to Onederland with BFHGs
I started a new, 5% challenge over the weekend. This is my umpteenth one. I love this challenge and my team. It’s part of what made SparkWorld come alive to me, years ago. However, I’ve pretty much phoned it in, during the last couple of cha... Read more
