Summer Adventure: Photo Challenge


I am not adventurous by nature, so it was truly a challenge to think of photos for this week's Photo Challenge.  I like to know where I'm going, how I will get there, and what could happen when I arrive.  I over pack making sure I have contingencies covered.  My husband, however, likes getting in … Continue reading Summer Adventure: Photo Challenge

Summer Lovin’ Photo Challenge


This week's photo challenge is definitely a fun one! Show us something you love. It could be your favorite novel, the light of the moon on your deck at night, the beach on a hot day, or that special you-know-who. Since my husband and I actually left town for a vacation earlier this week, I … Continue reading Summer Lovin’ Photo Challenge

The Honor System is Alive and Well, In Vermont


As I mentioned in yesterday's post, my husband and I were in Vermont for a few days.  For the ride home we decided that instead of the interstate we'd travel some back roads south to get home.  We left the hotel at about 9:30 and had not yet eaten breakfast, figuring we would find some … Continue reading The Honor System is Alive and Well, In Vermont

I've mentioned before how lucky I am to have such a big family; and I am, hands-down, one of the luckiest people I know.  I've written about some of my sisters, brothers, and brothers-in-law (not all of them yet though) and one sister-in-law.  Today I'd like to thank two more sisters-in-law. First off is my … Continue reading Sisters (in-law) by Chance, Family Forever

Spelling Bee(s)


In elementary school, I loved it when every week my teacher would have a spelling bee; a clever way to give us a chance to practice the set of words that would be part of the weekly test.  It was fun to be on a team; to be bummed out together if we lost and … Continue reading Spelling Bee(s)

Everybody Loves Raymond


I'm one of a few people I know who actually doesn't mind the snow.  Maybe it's the 10 years of living in northern New England that's helped; you put your boots on in October and take them off in May--you get used to it. Like most 9 to 5'ers today, I was outside pushing and pulling … Continue reading Everybody Loves Raymond
