    Old Paper Scrapping Supplies

    I'm packing up to move to a new home next week, and I'm trying to be really selective about what I take with me. I have one of those rolling scrapbooking totes full of papers, stickers, scissors, etc etc etc, that I just grabbed out of one closet and put into another 4 years ago when I last...

    Pinterest Woes

    I don't know what it is with me and Pinterest. It seems that every time I try to pin one of my layouts to my boards, something changes. For example, today I wanted to pin the layout I just uploaded in the gallery here. Last week, there was a field that I could just pop the image link into, and...

    Do You Have a Superpower?

    We all might be familiar with the game that asks you what you would want your superpower to be if you could pick one, but I have a different question--do you already have a superpower? Let me explain! A few weeks ago I was talking with my younger sister and the subject turned to the many...

    Jury Duty

    In the mail today came a summons for jury duty. I've been lucky enough that I rarely get called, and have not actually been selected for any actual trials. My daughter and ex-husband used to get called all the time. How about you? Have you ever actually served on a jury?

    Do you take naps? As in, do you specifically take some time out of your day to catch some sleep? Chronic sleep deprivation is a big thing in the USA, and many experts suggest taking a nap during the day can help make up for the sleep we don't get at night. I have never been one to purposefully...

    World Kindness Day

    The World Kindness Movement started World Kindness Day in 1998 and has spread to 28 countries. It is recognized on November 13th each year. To be honest, I had never heard of it until now. I think this is a day we need to be aware of more now than ever before! Tell me about a time that...

    My *S* Key

    So, quite some time ago I spilled some coffee on my laptop keyboard. I blotted it up right away and cleaned between the keys as best I could. Luckily, everything seems to be okay, except... ...my "S" key doesn't always work. Every time I do some writing or journaling, I have to carefully...

    Yoga, anyone?

    I saw online that today is World Yoga Day. My daughter practices yoga when she can, as does my boss. I have tried yoga a couple of times and just don't feel that it appeals to me. I assume that if I kept trying, eventually I would feel some benefit from it. Does anyone here practice yoga? Did...

    I broke down and did it!

    Cut my own hair, that is. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, my last haircut was March 4, and I usually get my hair trimmed about once a month because it grows so fast. It's layered, so it's not easy to pull into a ponytail, and the fact that my bangs were down below my nose was driving me crazy...

    Female Role Models

    With International Women's Day being tomorrow, it got me thinking about women who inspire us personally. When I was getting ready to go to college (many years ago), the admissions counselor at the school told me I wasn't challenging myself enough with my chosen field of study, and he said it was...

    Gyms and Fitness Clubs

    I currently have a membership at the community center of a neighboring city that allows me to take any of their fitness classes for a monthly fee. I have just decided to switch to a new gym that is closer to my home and costs less than the community center membership. Since there is no shortage...

    Feast of Saint Nicholas

    A few days ago at work we were talking about the Feast of St. Nicholas, celebrated on December 5th or 6th, depending on the country. My parents came to the USA from Germany, and when I was a young child, we would put our shoes outside our bedroom doors the night before, and wake up to a few...
