I want to believe +Susanna Leonard Hill belief that Spring is coming. It just might be the snowy kind of spring:)
I know the thermometer by my kitchen window says 11 below zero this morning... er, possibly 12 below. I know Blueberry Hill is still blanketed under a solid two feet of snow. I know my fingers get so cold while I'm doing the barn that first they hurt and then I forget I have any fingers :) ...

Persistence Party
I’ve had a touch of stinkifunkitis in 2015. (No this isn’t
the same as the funkysmellitosis I’m also suffering from after a very sweaty
yoga class.) My word of the year in 2014 was REVISE. And I revised my
patootie off. But this January my revision brain is...

Take Your Child to Work Day
For my 7yo, hearing she couldn’t go to Take Your Child to
Work Day at daddy’s office until she turned eight was, well, horrifically
painful, soul-torturing, complete and total devastation. Everyone was doing it. She turned to me for
options. “Can I stay hom...

Watching the Wheels Turn
Tuesday was a hard day. Both kids were sniffly. There was a snow delay after a snow day, and the walls were

you noticed lip booboos bleed with the shocking ferocity of a sword w...
