Eclipse Weekend

August 30, 2017

We went to Shawnee National Forest in the Southern tip of Illinois to see the eclipse. Our intent was to park at the Garden of the Gods, but they were “closed for safety.” The guy at the entrance said to wait about an hour, so we drove down the road, found some shade, parked the […]

We do not produce that much garbage in a week. During the warmer months, we would collect the stinky food scraps and store them in the freezer. About once a month we would take it to the curb on garbage day. Our town is cool enough to have a bag system so we don’t have […]

I went tubing for the first time today. It was a lot of fun! B went first by himself, hung on for quite a while. Then D and I went. We went slow at first, then worked our way up to higher speeds. After, I volunteered to go with A, but she was too scared. […]

May 26, 2017

School’s out for ever! Ha, wait…maybe!? I have decided to take a leave of absence next year. Which means, come August, no back to school shopping for me! I will need to make a final decision by February if I want to go back or not. You see, teachers in my district have the option […]

USA so close…

July 17, 2011

The US women’s national soccer team watched their dreams slip away as Japan walked away with an amazing win to take home the World Cup trophy. Though they did not top the group in the first round for the first time, they made it to round two.┬áHaving to play against a great Brazialian┬áteam. Terrible calls […]

Ice Packs

June 30, 2011

I have to run to the grocery store on this nice hot day and an idea came to mind. Why don’t stores place their ice packs for sale inside the freezer? Stores will put their umbrella racks in front of the doors when it’s raining outside, but I’ve never seen a cold ice pack for […]

What kind of bird is this?

May 31, 2011

I have a nest under the deck.┬á It is a very messy nest!┬á They (the mom and dad birds) were very kind to leave me a mud mixture splattered all over my patio window and ground.┬á It’s quite lovely, but doesn’t really match the decor.┬á I’d clean it up, but I’m afraid I will scare […]
