Matthew’s 7th Birthday

August 8, 2017 in cakes, misc., musings - 1 Comment

Seven is supposed to be a lucky number, I told Matthew today.  So, since you just turned 7, this should be a really great year.  He was unimpressed.  I’m slowly, and sadly, beginning to realize that the older he gets, the more uncool I become.  When did being 7 get…

A New Adventure

February 24, 2017 in musings, Uncategorized - 2 Comments

I have been saying no for at least 4 years.  Eric asked.  Matthew pleaded.  Grace begged.  When the Humane Society came to Eric’s work last Monday, with furry friends to be snuggled, I knew the battle was over.  It didn’t help that his coworker sent me this picture of Eric holding…

Reflecting On a Year

December 31, 2016 in misc., musings - 2 Comments

The time between Christmas and New Year’s has always been a time of contemplation for me.  A time to look back on the year and reflect on the highs and lows.  A time to see the mix of laughter and sorrow.  But through the bitterness there is sweetness, no matter how small…

Merry Christmas

My First Decorating Class

July 12, 2011 in cookies, misc., musings - No Comments

No, not the first decorating class where I was a student.  The first decorating class where I was the teacher.  I already knew I liked school and teaching, (that’s why I became a teacher for my professional career), but when you combine it with a hobby you love…wow, great things happen! I hosted my…

A Tribute to my Mom

May 8, 2011 in misc., musings - 6 Comments

  My mother is one of the bravest women I know.  Not only did she raise three daughters, each 18 months apart, (and survived), on a meager budget because she chose to stay home, but is currently fighting an incurable cancer with her head held high.  I’m not extremely eloquent with words, but…
