We moved last week. We moved from a lovely house on the hill, a cabin really that overlooked a busy harbor. A working harbor. We moved to a house out of town, on the water. A bigger lot, not so close to neighbors. Lots of trees and privacy. It is quiet here. And dark at … Continue reading A Different Kind Of Morning

To Be “On Fleek”
I hesitated when I saw this prompt - Fleek. It took me right back to one of the last years I was in the classroom. And this simple prompt reminded me of what I miss about being in the classroom. Over the years I found some really tried and true activities. One of them was … Continue reading To Be “On Fleek”
Book Fair Time!
It is that time of year. I just spent two days transforming my library into a book fair. Hooray! People LOVE book fairs. SO MANY adults share with me that their favorite memory of elementary school was the book fair. Kids begin asking as soon as the posters go up...

After two or three dictionary sites, I understood how it worked - like it's very close cousin "sequel," the word was "sequelae." It isn't much … Continue reading Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off

For My Sister
It is strange how grief will sneak in and get you. Someone sent me a picture of the four us when we little, little kids. Playing and jovial. Big smiles and happy faces. And there she was, and I just was stunned by her memory. Memories burbled quickly to the surface. She has been gone … Continue reading For My Sister
The prompt word for the day is comeback. Hmmm.... comeback. I appreciate the prompts, (I really, really do... thank you, thank you) but I am sure you will agree this is a difficult one. It will be interesting to see how other people traffic the word. (Prompt two: Traffic, my use of the prompt was … Continue reading Comeback
