Time for some summer reading recommendations! Summer is traditionally a time for light beach reads--romances, mysteries, and such. But when I was teaching, summer break was when I’d have time to finally tackle the longer, more heavy duty tomes. If that’s your habit as well, you might want to curl up in an air-conditioned room … Continue reading Beach Reads??!!

Hello, dear readers! Lately I've been feeling like a juggler who's got a lot of balls in the air. So I've decided to tuck this one in my pocket and take an August holiday from my blog. The heat is telling us all to slow down and chill out. Go swimming, eat ice cream, read … Continue reading Summer Greetings!

Stuff like that. I want to get out, but it’s scary too. I’m fully vaccinated, my health risk is … Continue reading Sheltering-in-Place: final edition?
This Labor Day Weekend, I'm celebrating persistence and endurance as we make it through a second season of this Worldwide Pandemic. I continue to offer affirmations and prayers for better days ahead as autumn rolls in, and the days grow shorter. I've been hunkered down here at home since March.

Last night I finished reading Travels With My Aunt by Graham Greene. Things being what they are in the world, I’ve been having a bit of trouble focusing on anything more challenging than Big Bang Theory reruns, so I was looking for something light and maybe even funny.

Written with the prompt: a shoe falls out of the sky!
