I’m laughing as I type this….I had today’s post all mapped out yesterday. It was going to be on “sleep” and the benefits of it and, more pointedly, my quest for more of it. Well, I was working on an article last night, ended up going to bed, er….too late…and didn’t get to my post.… Continue reading Switch Gears
Some summers amble by with the usual of activities and happenings; trips to the beach, BBQs with friends, a little canoeing, a whole lot of swimming, some berry-picking and s’mores-making. All good things, but maybe nothing that sticks out as momentous. And then there are those summers that contain things you know you will remember,… Continue reading Witness to History
The pencils, pens and notebooks have been tucked into newly cleaned backpacks. We are officially back to making lunches (*note Groan heard ’round the neighborhood*), a new schedule has been set and we are off! The school year has begun.

Kids gave them a thumbs down, hubby and I liked. Maybe more for adult palates? Possibly. Easy Dill Pickles, courtesy of America’s… Continue reading That Darned Grass…it’s Always Greener over there…

Well, I guess I have, I just didn’t think to call it that. But I like it…your Summer SandBucket List. And you know this is… Continue reading Grab a Shovel
Here it is. The Last Day of School. Here already? Where was February? Didn’t we JUST have an Easter Egg hunt? Hold on because I’m STILL finding petrified silly string in my yard…from Halloween. Yikes! Now it’s time for sunscreen and camp and fireflies. Part of me says let time fly then, because this is… Continue reading Commence to Commence
