summer

Here it is again. Hot. Sticky. Humid. Except this time around, I’m at home spinning in circles trying to check things off to-do lists and clear out the excess junk in my life, both literally and figuratively. I made it through my first year teaching. Somewhat miraculously. Maybe one day I’ll learn to stop thinking […]

Getting out there

Having a week’s vacation has been blissful. Half of it was spent in a near panic about not having enough time to accomplish all the things I’d need to, but by the time Thanksgiving rolled around, I had pretty well settled into the week, was enjoying myself, breathing deeper, sleeping past my usual 6 am […]

A guest post by Nate! OMG! This may be old news for some of you, may be interesting to others, or may be a snooze to still others (so I’ll keep the nerd speak to a minimum). I’ve recently read a number of blog posts, articles, and heard from folks some breakdowns of the subtle […]

A delectable, sweet-with-just-enough-kick sorbet to both say goodbye to winter and welcome the equally smack-you-in-the-face all of a sudden arrival of florida’s non-existent “spring” where it will go abruptly from the 60’s to the 80’s. I stole my recipe…ish. It was intended to be a jam. I even intended for it to be […]

I carpooled up to Gainesville, Florida today for a course on home funerals. If this freaks you out or sounds odd, just hear me out. The event was hosted by Final Friends of Gainesville, a helping group for education and assistance with home funerals. It was hosted by Freddie who also works with Prairie Creek […]

In Between Work

Wednesday was my last day as an Everyday Blessings employee (at least a daycare staff, I┬ámay still do some respite if time will allow it), but I went back yesterday to take my kiddos out to ice cream so we could have a proper goodbye. They didn’t leave – don’t leave – until today, but […]
