About two years ago I finally started writing the book I’ve had on my mind for a few years. Last year, I finished what we called the sloppy copy in my K/1 classroom. After finishing, I found three people I consider mentors and experts, and whom I also knew would be very honest with me… Continue reading Wrestling with Demons
Month: July 2021
It was BBQ night with the gang. Good burgers, good dogs, and good conversation. I’m so glad we can hang with friends again!
In today’s America, we workers seem to be expected to continue to give, and give, and give some more, without any real return to us. That is, unless you count being able to keep our jobs. Mental health, physical health, just health in general, doesn’t seem to be a factor. At what point do we,… Continue reading Breaking Point?
A Night of Olympics
Sorry, the Olympics have me engrossed this evening. Swimming and diving are two of my favorite Olympic sports. Can’t wait for the Velodrome events.
Republicans: It’s the Unvaccinated’s Fault
The hypocrisy is astounding! When it all began, Covid-19 wasn’t serious. It was all under control. Then it moved into it being a little serious. If one would just drink some bleach, or stick a wand in a certain place for ultraviolet light to treat it, all could be cured. We moved on to it… Continue reading Republicans: It’s the Unvaccinated’s Fault
A Shot of Penicillin
This evening we had a goodbye dinner for one of our band gang who is moving away this week. It was so enjoyable and fun to be able to break bread with the people who helped me settle into Avon, and supported me during my year alone without the hubby. I’m not sure I would… Continue reading A Shot of Penicillin
More Stressed than I Thought?
As I’ve mentioned in the past, cooking and baking are stress relievers for me. When I need to regain some balance in my life, one of the places this happens is in the kitchen. Family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors have all benefited from my getting back into balance. This weekend I’ve spent a lot of… Continue reading More Stressed than I Thought?
Are Neighborhood Gatherings a Thing of the Past?
Once our neighborhood began filling up, a neighbor decided we should have a Neighborhood Social Committee. She asked around and got it started with about seven people coming together. The hubby and I were two of the seven to show up. That first year was a little light in activities as one might imagine, although… Continue reading Are Neighborhood Gatherings a Thing of the Past?
Black Widow Tonight
It’s date night! Time to see Black Widow, finally. Only had to wait a year or so for it to come out. Happy Friday everyone!
Dinner for One
This evening I planned on making okra and shrimp stew. I had to start it just after my lunch time because I had to let the ham hocks boil in water, onion, and bay leaf for about three hours. I’m not sure if it was a good thing or a bad thing. The odor permeated… Continue reading Dinner for One
