all about alliteration

I always feel like I have to write a post about fun things, favorite things, or five things on Fridays.  Or fried things. Or funny things (well, I mean, that's all my posts. Insert smirk 'moji). Or finicky things. Or financial things. Or filibuster things. get the idea.  Basically I feel like I'm not real blogger status until all my weekly posts contain some kind of alliteration....more

Life has been so dang busy recently lately. ^^ I've almost started the last few blog posts with that sentence, but when I try to write a second sentence I can't think of what in our lives is actually making us that busy.

on finishing a book

I finished reading a book yesterday. A book that I started in January, but hey! I did it! If this had been a marathon, I would have been about three minutes months behind the cop car that herds all the slowpokes to the finish line.  Don't wait on me!...more

when it rains, it pours. and floods.

For those of you who watch the news/skim Twitter/scroll slowly through Facebook, you've probably seen that Texas was underwater this past Monday.  That's a slight exaggeration.
