I had my 12 week check up yesterday and I got to hear the baby's heartbeat again! I could not stop smiling! My heartbeat was the loudest, but when the doctor got the scope right over the baby, I could hear the little "tippa tippa" going i... Read more

I've been holding off on announcing this - but I think I am ready for some Spark support as I navigate the next 7 months. We're expecting a little Jean-and-Ben-baby in early December. I'm coming up on 9 weeks and finding myself excite... Read more

We are finally getting some early spring garden veggies! We've been able to pick a handful of asperagus every night this week from the 'field garden' and on Wednesday I picked my first home-grown salad from the raised bed that Ben built for ... Read more
Call it a Loss
Monday, April 29, 2013      4 comments

When I was in college, there were days that I would just 'call a loss' - nothing went my way, a test - a fall out with a friend - a car break-down - an interrupted routine. With the careless of youth, I considered each new day a fresh page - ... Read more

It's been uber-crazy at work this week what with payroll madness and an added bonus-payroll-madness. (Good for people getting bonuses....bad for my sanity.) But I got to work early this morning, because I figured if I needed to freak out... Read more

Hello everyone. Sorry for the quiet. There has been a lot to do, and enjoy, and see, and think about. Spring is the most lovely (and busy!) time of year. Ben and I spent the whole weekend outside - cleaning up the porch, weeding ... Read more

I have little spinach seedlings popping up in my raised bed! They aren't much to look at yet - just little half inch green tinies perking up through the soil. Hardly enough to even see in a picture...but soon I'll have fresh garden spina... Read more

Tuesday, March 19, 2013      2 comments

Well...the flu, or something like it, has attacked the office. The only thing I ran over the weekend was a temperature - and I stayed home from work yesterday to rest. Sunday night I fell asleep around 6:30pm and didn't wake up until 6:30a... Read more
The Pine Cone Saga
Thursday, March 14, 2013      8 comments

I wish you all could have seen me this morning in the backyard throwing pine cones at the bedroom window. (This is why the neighbors think we're crazy.) Yes. I got locked out of the house. I checked my purse for my keys, felt somethi... Read more

I got my shoes! I decided to go with a pair designed for trail running since they can be used for both indoor and outdoor purposes. To tell the truth, I've hardly taken them off since I got them! They are really good support even around ... Read more
