I’m at the culminating moment of the Rector Search…. which is why I haven’t been posting. Sorry about that.

The Time of “I Don’t Wanna”

Photo: This year, I’m learning applique. I was at my favorite fabric store today  (followed by pretty yummy Thai) to pick up fabric and embroidery thread/floss to replicate this piece that my sister did for me back in ’16. I call her Our Lady of Smiting and I give her a kiss whenever I go down…

Queen of the Moms

Photo: The greatest goodie bag of all time?   Yes, I wrote a whole post bashing goodie bags… then my friend convinced me to let her make them for Major’s birthday party anyway. I realize this makes me look real soft on my convictions. I suppose I would say that I love my friend more…

[Quiet Thoughts] Different Worlds

Photo: My pin collection is growing! I received the typewriter and coffee pins from my dear church mentee today! They are adorable! My pins live on my knitting project bag, which holds them well. Sailor Moon comes from Adorned by Chi.  Beyonce and Black Girl Magic came from Effie’s Paper.   I spent my Tuesday…

Just Own It

Photo: I haven’t taken many pictures lately, but scanning through my Google photo I found this awesome one from my trip to Vermont. My friend stocks toys in her house and this made me actually scream with joy and take a picture! I had this Fisher-Price Tudor House when I was a little girl and…

Childhood is Magic

Photo: If it’s a brisk morning in November, it must be a good time to shoot rockets into the air.   With The Husband taking on a leadership role in our Boy Scouts pack, our weekends have been almost completely consumed with Boy Scout obligations this Fall. This isn’t a horrible thing. The boys are…

Little Tornadoes

Photo: I broke out my good camera a few weeks ago to take pictures of these two fools for the annual Christmas card. I’m not a professional, but a few that I took will be good enough to send to others. The Husband is praying for snow between now and Thanksgiving so we can have…

[Quiet Thoughts] Of a Troubled Week

Photo: Mother Nature decide to lend us an extension of the playfort today, having a tree from our neighbor’s yard start a domino tumble of old tree trunks fall over, one of them toppling haphazardly over the stone fence. The little house The Husband made for our firewood has been toppled over—I believe it’s still…

This Good Kid

Photo: Ursa Major’s 1st grade class visited Good Hope Beach in Gloucester (Glawh-staah in Boston-Speak. Or perhaps Glaaaah-Stah? That might be a different dialect of Boston-Speak) today to collect sea creatures for the tidal pool in their classroom. It was my first ever visit to Gloucester and the beach was lovely. We’re still looking for…

The One Good Thing About Being the “Only”

Photo: I take particular pleasure in a good, velvety yolk. I live for a good eggs benedict. Over- or under-cooked and I just growl. When it was time to teach The Husband how to cook, the first thing I taught him was how to get the eggs right. It took him a while, but he’s…
