What's That They Say About Good Intentions?

Posted on February 26, 2014 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

I think of this blog, the website and my faithful friends so very often, thank you for sticking with me despite my being negligent!


Does it even have to be noted that life is crazy busy?

Once it was set that all four kiddos would be in school full time I had had enrolled myself in four courses for the past Fall Semester. Things went so well - you know how I seem to thrive in chaos - I decided to enroll in a few more courses for the Spring semester. Despite having fewer...

Easing Back In

Posted on October 1, 2013 at 9:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Hello! How have you been?

As you most likely know, I haven't been around for awhile now - just over a year in fact. Rest assured, I have not retired my DPNs nor have I ceased to be creative! In fact, it is in the gentle art of knitting that I have found solace this past year. New designs have been conceived and sketched but, as most of us know, time is often limited and I am not a speedy knitter. So, those sketches and drafts are added to my binders with the hope that one day, most lik...

Can I Get a Collective "Yay!"?

Posted on August 21, 2012 at 8:55 PM Comments comments (1)

Just a short post to keep you updated. If you follow me in Facebook, you likely know that after living in our house for the past 7 weeks (yes, I made a mistake in Facebook and wrote 6) 'camp style', that is, on blow up mattresses and without seating and other comfortable items, our property will begin deliver tomorrow!


Yay!


Again, Yay!


We have had quite a lot going on in the past 7 weeks to make the time go by, let me tell you: snakes, mic...

Back in the U.S.A.

If you are reading this, Thank you! Also, if you are reading this, you are likely an online friend and are aware of my recent hiatus and may skip the following few sentences. Mid-June we began our pack out and travel from Germany to the United States. It has been 9 1/2 years since we lived in the continental USA and we are more than excited about this new journey in our lives.


July 6, 2012 we signed a lease and are now renting a charming little house in my homestate of Rhode...

Gettin' Clippy With It

Posted on April 30, 2012 at 6:35 PM Comments comments (1)

Like many of the wired world, I have been using Pintrest recently.  A few months ago I signed up but hadn't gotten around to using it and, Evernote had been the answer to my online 'scrapbook'.  Still, once your friends and family start using something on a regular basis, you are bound to at least try it out.


Before Evernote, I would simply save that informat...

Spring Flowers

Posted on April 5, 2012 at 10:35 AM Comments comments (2)

Of course it is now Spring and my garden for one is in screaming color.  I have pleaded with the kids to not pick any of the flowers but this means I too must resist.  Yet, I can not help but to acknowledge how lovely some of the Narcissus and Tulips would look on the dinning room table, but then they don't last as long once they've been cut ... what to do?


A few days ago I read

Don't Be A Bubble Head, Back It Up Baby

Posted on February 8, 2012 at 4:05 AM Comments comments (1)

February already!  It is an extremely cold and snowy day here in Germany, a perfect time to update my often neglected blog and website.


So, two weeks ago my husband had the boys for the day and I thought it would be a perfect Me day.  Take a soak, read, watch some television (something I rarely do!).  The idea of taking a long bath was too enticing and the thought of catching up on Downton Abbey while doing so seemed like a perfect combination, not to mention ...

So long my 2011, Hello 2012!

Posted on January 2, 2012 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (3)

It really is quite amazing to me that we are now in the year 2012.  2011 went by quickly, don't you think?  Like most, I do have what might be called 'resolutions' for 2012 but not without appreciating what 2011 brought me, both good and not so great.


First and foremost, my children.  They are both a source of constant joy and constant worry.  I love each of their personalities and think myself fortunate to be their mother.  Some days are certainly m...

Make It Monday: Mending

Posted on November 22, 2011 at 4:20 AM Comments comments (0)

In a full house of six, there is always something in need of mending, but this past week seemed to be the week of Mending!  In hindsight, I wish I had taken photos of all the items before repair because frankly, I am quite impressed in some of the repairs, if I do say so myself! (all finished pics on Wednesday)

 

For a few weeks now, I knew that our favorite knitted blanket (gifted by friends in the Monthly Adventures Group) was once again in need of repair.  The la...
