Veteran’s Day

Veterans Day first came about on November 11, 1919, when President Woodrow Wilson issued a message to Americans expressing what he felt the day meant. Originally known as Armistice Day, it coincided with the first anniversary of the ending of World War I. It has since become a time in which we honor all United... Continue Reading →

Snowmaggedon #ThursdayThoughts

Hey, everyone. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know Texas had a massive winter storm last week. I’ve been calling it Snowmageddon. Other names I’ve seen are Snowpocalypse and Snovid-21. Whatever you call it, this wasn’t a fun time for any of us. Needless to say, I’d rather not have been a... Continue Reading →

Welcome, October #ThursdayThoughts

Hey, everyone. It's the first of October, which is my favorite month of the year. "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables I've been on vacation this week. For the first time in several years, we're having fall-like weather. Lows in the fifties,... Continue Reading →

Suddenly it Was June

Hey everyone. Today’s post is short and sweet. I realized it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted here. How quickly time flies. One day it was early March. Spring was just around the corner, bringing longer days and the promise of warmer weather. Then COVID struck, and the world went crazy. I fully intended... Continue Reading →

Totally Random #ThursdayThoughts

After I spent almost the entire day troubleshooting a problem due to a software upgrade, I needed to prove I could learn something new. For months (maybe a year) I'd put off learning the new WordPress... Continue Reading →

Catching Up

Hey everyone. It's been a few weeks since I last posted here. Truthfully, I didn't intend for it to be that long. When I last checked in, I had been working from home for about a week. I had always wondered what that would be like. Now, I know. It's not all it's cracked up... Continue Reading →

New Normal #Thursday Thoughts

Hey everyone. Sorry for going dark for a few days, but like many people in the USA and around the world, I'm adjusting to my "new normal." When I say new normal, I want to be clear this is only temporary. I've been working from home since last Wednesday. It's something I've wanted to do... Continue Reading →

Looking Back, Moving Forward

Happy 2020 everyone. It’s a new year and a new decade. I intended to write a year-end post earlier in the week, but unfortunately, both my husband and I are recovering from the flu. Not an ideal way to begin a new year and both of us had the flu shot. So, this post is... Continue Reading →

Full Moons #Thursday Thoughts

Hey, everyone. I'm still on a limited (and sporadic) blogging schedule this month. I hadn't planned to post today, but early this morning (or before midnight depending on what time zone you're in) a special event occurred. Yes, it's a full moon. But this one is significant. It's the last full moon of this decade.... Continue Reading →
