Drawing blanks tonight. Coming down with a pesky cold, complete with sneezes, Kleenex and low energy. Today when I went for my hike in the woods I took some snips and stopped along the way to trim back thorny green briar bushes/plants w... Read more

Just another super day. That's a whole lot to be thankful for. Before I began this journey there were (emotionally) good days & not so good days. The not so good days were managed with comfort food more often than not. I'm so glad I can s... Read more

Tonight at 6:00 pm there was a school board meeting. On the agenda for consideration were pay raises for non-certified employees. General feelings at school were that as many of us as possible should go to the meeting to show the School Board... Read more
