The prompt is damp. Damp is not a pleasant word and I am having such a pleasant morning! (And yeah, Fandango... I tried, I cannot make beard work...I tried talking about rain in someone's beard, but that felt weird for some reason...LOL) But here goes.... It stormed and rained and blew yesterday. It was so … Continue reading Another Weather Post….
The official countdown is on. In one week we will be sleeping in our new home. It is exciting and frightening at the same time. I have not slept the last three nights, thoughts such as "Should we plaster and touch up all the nail holes?" To "Did I make arrangements for the dog during … Continue reading For a Good Nights Sleep
So it happened. There was a word prompt I have never heard of before. I had to look it up. Read the definition. See the word used in a sentence. 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

I have written about that before, and most likely will again, but I thought I would share an … Continue reading Epic Fall
It is Friday and it is going to be a sunny day. I find it hard to drag myself to work, I want to watch the busy busy business outside my window. Planes and boats and clouds and sunshine. Watch the sun slowly warm Gravina Island outside my window. I stay a little Longer, drink … Continue reading Gravina Morning
Scott and I sold our house. The kids are gone, the house is big and rattly now. In a fortuitous turn of events, we bought a posh new house, a lovely dream home. It makes sense, but still I am sad. We move out in two weeks and the house is getting echoey as we … Continue reading This House
