Flowers and veggies and trees, oh my. It's that time of year again. Spring is here. Now it’s time to consider what to plant in the garden. Well need flowers for the flower bed in the front yard, veggies for the garden in the back yard. Then there’s the question of berries, fruit trees, and other assorted perennials. Now is the time for preparing and planting.

We picked up several packages of flower...

Another important bit of advice I’ve come up with to tell my children is: Find something that you really like doing for a living, because you’re going to be doing it for a long time. There’s no sense in putting a lot of effort and education towards doing something that makes you miserable. Every job has something about it that you find enjoyable, and every job has some part that you don’t like doi...

The best advice I’ve ever gotten from anyone. I don’t mind listening to others’ advice, but I tend to test it out a bit, or at least observe it in action, before I take it to heart. What follows is the best advice I’ve gotten through the years from a variety of sources.

The first source is my mother. Out of all the advice she gave me throughout the years I’ve found two things that are absolutely sp...

I’ve been trying to think of topics to blog about. I don’t really think of myself as an expert on any one thing. I’m more of a generalist. I know a moderate amount on a variety of subjects. Minor home repairs? No sweat. Math and science? I love it. Parenting? Raised five kids, got 3 grandkids, it’s not a record, but I can recognize when a toddler is tired or hungry or just mad. Sports? Okay, you g...

I promise this is the last of my blogs on public transit. Well, at least for a while. I can’t promise I won’t ever blog about public transit again.

The biggest headache for me is the time sink. It eats up too much time. And the timing between the different parts is atrocious. If I didn’t lose between 5 to 15 minutes between each transfer the whole trip would only be about 15 minutes longer than dri...

As I said last time I'm commuting long hours. Unfortunately, I can't use all that time writing, because I have to keep switching from bus to rail, etc. I do get about one hour straight on the bus. That's when I'm writing this, on the bus on my way home. I sleep on the way in. It's still dark at that time. It's way too early at that time. I'm not a morning person. I'm awake and writing on the way h...

My life is usually strange. Weird things happen all the time. It’s gotten to where I’m not surprised or particularly fazed when someone says, “It’s not supposed to do that,” or “That’s never happened before,” or “Well, that’s a stumper.” So most of the time when strange thing happen I can take it in stride. Me, my husband, my kids, we all seem to break the curve somehow. It almost seems normal any...

Okay, so you deserve an explanation for my absence this month. Two good things happened. One my latest grandchild was born. I spent about a week and a half there, off and on, watching the older two while Mom and Dad were galavanting off to the hospital for number three. Then I got a job. Yipee. I am once again employed. We can keep eating. However I now have a 60 mile, one way, commute. That is ki...

I missed on Wednesday and Friday last week, again. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. Though this second round of antibiotics does seem to be working. Hopefully, I won't miss any this week.

Here is another short, short story:

A deep night mist obscured all but the closest trees of the forest. The ground of the glade had been swept clean of all leaves, twi...

Sorry about Friday.  My computer went out on me.  It turns out the power cord was broken.

Here is another bit of fiction.  Enjoy.

Ari padded along silently in the wake of the clamorous titan. The climb was steep and strenuous, but Ari had no fear of losing his quarry. Between the noise and destruction, the titan left a path that couldn't be missed. A path lined with L...
