I know this is late but I crashed last night. Around 9:30 I sat in bed planning to read and Spark. I woke up just after midnight, still sitting upright and wearing my glasses, in the dark. DH came to bed and left me like that. I guess he did... Read more

It is finally the end of a very long week. I think everyone at work felt the same way. Once our out-of-town guests left just after 3, we spent the rest of the afternoon sitting around the table. It started with work talk but after a while we ... Read more

I had a nice visit with my niece and her daughter, as well as with my own daughter. My great-niece, Lydia, is 11 months old and walking like a champ. I never thought I'd say this, but it's time to baby-proof my house again! ... Read more
