So today at work, I was chatting with a woman buying small pieces of a bunch of fabrics, which usually means she’s making a quilt.

Hi, my pretty, pretty princesses! I hope spring is beginning to show her face where you live. Here in Louisiana, it’s wet today but finally we’re not dealing with cold weather that we’re not used to. Easter Sunday was beautiful, although it got a bit rainy in the afternoon. Mass was, as always, joyous and …
Our son has ADHD and therefore, when he is not on his medication, he has some problems focusing on one task at a time. I may have that, too. Hmmm… Anyway, as he lives in a house of readers/writers/editor, we’ve been doing everything we can to encourage him to read. He struggles with Accelerated Reading …
Geek girls – Real or Fake? The idea of the “Fake Geek” – usually a girl – has popped up on my radar recently and I did some searching and found this article: Dear Fake Nerd Girls, Go Away Basically, the article says that if you want to call yourself a nerd or a geek, …
