Back to School Rituals and the County Fair - August 8, 2011

When I heard that my nieces and nephew in Alabama were returning to school today, all I could think was, “So Early!” And then I discovered that some of the schools in my area were starting later this week, even though most of the districts in this section of the Midwest wait until late August because not all of their buildings have air conditioning. However, more and more of the buildings are being updated, and more and more of the districts are returning to school earlier ...

Family - August 1, 2011

Last week was a busy one for me, with family from out-of-town visiting. My brother and his new bride drove down from Toledo, and another brother and his wife and 3-year-old daughter came up from Sidney, Ohio to join my husband and I, my parents, and my two college-aged siblings who still live with Mom and Dad during the summer. In fact, the only people missing from our large family gathering were my brother who lives in South Carolina and his wife. This has been a summer of gather...

Back-to-School Drama - July 29, 2011

  It’s late July, and that means…back-to school sales!    Although I don’t yet have children, I still take advantage of the deals to stock up on office supplies for the year. (When else can you regularly buy notebooks for 20 cents or less a piece?) Meandering through the packed aisles at Target, I couldn’t help but smile at the children’s excitement as they selected their school supplies. I was pleasantly reminded of the back-to-sch...

A Reader For Life - July 19, 2011

  I read a blog this morning (http://www.likesbooks.com/blog/) about whether readers are born or made, whether we can raise our kids to be readers or if genetically they are just born that way. It got me thinking about my own journey as a lover of books.    Genetically speaking, reading is in my blood. Both of my parents love to read, though my dad did so much less often when I was a child than he does now. Several of my grandparents loved to read, especially my ...

Can you take the heat? - July 18, 2011

I hate heat. Hate it. Loathe it. And high humidity is even worse. This is one of the reasons I live in the Midwest—the northern portion of the Midwest. There are weeks like this one when the temps reach 100, and the heat index climbs over 110, but they are few and far between.  I spent two years in midstate South Carolina and seven years in middle Tennessee. Believe me, I understand what true heat is. And beautiful as it is there in the early spring...

Winnie the Pooh, where are you? - Repost - July 15, 2011

My maternal grandfather had a wonderful imagination and a flair for the dramatic. From my earliest childhood memories, I can remember him reading my siblings, cousins and I stories such as The Three Billy Goats Gruff, complete with voices, or joining us in a rousing board game. But by far, our most favorite activity shared with Grandpa was searching for Winnie the Pooh. My grandparents lived in rural northeast Indiana on a large plot of open land that stretched back a quarter of a mil... Click Here To Read More >>



Basting a Redhead - June 20, 2011

I love being tan! There are few things like sporting a healthy bronze glow to your legs and arms to instantly make you feel more beautiful and slimmer. Especially, when those legs and arms are normally palest ivory with pink undertones and speckled with freckles.  As a natural redhead of distinct northern European descent, I do not tan. Not without the help of a bronzing product. In sunlight I burn, lobster red. And if I’m unfortunate enough to fry my appenda...

There is a loneliness... - June 17, 2011

There is a loneliness…to being the oldest sister. To being surrounded by brothers. To having a sister who was always too young to understand what I was going through.  There is a loneliness…to always being the most responsible, the most independent. To being the second child, but the first to take risks, leave home, strike out on their own. There is a loneliness…to being so secretive. To being afraid to share my hurts and admit my failings. To... Click Here To Read More >>



Of Dreams and Fireflies - May 4, 2011

“Wake, my child.” I lie still, feeling the vestiges of sleep slip off me. Warm air presses gently against my skin and the sweet smell of grass and dandelions tickles my nostrils. A chorus of crickets surrounds me and somewhere off in the distance to my right I can hear the lone bass of a bullfrog.    “Wake, my child.”   I blink open my eyes, staring at the dark heavens above me. Stars sprinkle the sky, twinkling down at me like benevolen...

When a Man Smiles... - April 20, 2011

What is it about the curl of a man’s lips, the softening of his features, the sparkle in his pupils, the laugh lines at the corner of his eyes that makes a woman weak? Be it from the man across the bar or the breakfast table, the man cradling our arm as we march down the aisle or the little guy holding our hand as we guide them across the street. There is just something utterly captivating about watching the transformation that overcomes a man’s face when he grins in genuin...
