A Neighborhood Diaper Drive


I was perusing my photos today, looking for one something in particular, but instead I came across these. I thought they might make a nice addition to this week's Photo Challenge:  Community.  Last year, my husband and I wanted to do something for the Holiday Drive at Children's Friend (in Providence), but we weren't in a … Continue reading A Neighborhood Diaper Drive

Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful


I love these Weekly Photo Challenges, it gives me an easy way to "show" you what I'm thankful for.  I think I may have missed the deadline for the one about Thanksgiving, of course.  As described in the DPChallenge, we're to show something that is about the holiday, the time spent with family and friends, … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

Gravy and the Wooden Spoon


Tonight my twenty-something niece is hosting her first holiday party, from the looks of what's posted on Facebook it might just be her first "grown-up" hosting.  It reminds me of the time I first hosted a holiday event.  I was living in Vermont in the early 90's and there were quite a few of us … Continue reading Gravy and the Wooden Spoon

Hillary (No, not that one…)


...Although, I remember her saying once when she was making a reservation at a restaurant, she gave the name Hillary and they thought it was Hillary Clinton.  True story. ******************************************************* Today I was sitting at my desk and got a call from the front desk. Elizabeth: "Kelly, you have a delivery of eggs down here." … Continue reading Hillary (No, not that one…)

11th Grade Homeroom


I love it when I see on Facebook pictures posted from high school days.  I must admit the only pictures I have are in my yearbook from senior year, which is sitting in a milk crate in my basement.  The wonder of Facebook certainly is the unexpected, and fun, finds that pop up almost daily. … Continue reading 11th Grade Homeroom
