I Miss You!


Awesome post here! I also have people that I miss everyday. Many of them are not with us right now because they are in a better place….

The Story of a Guy

We all have someone that we missed, whether it is someone who we don’t see on a daily/weekly/monthly basis or someone who lives far away or even someone who is no longer with us. Everyone shares these feelings. This is for you. I miss you!

Celebrating Irish Blogs and Bloggers on Saint Patrick’s Day


Interesting information…I have some Irish in my gene’s…..

The WordPress.com Blog

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Shona Duit! And, if you don’t speak Irish, Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! March 17th is a public holiday in Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Montserrat that commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Today, we’re showcasing Irish blogs and bloggers as a way to join in the fun.

No celebration is complete without food

If we’re celebrating, we’ve got to have good food. Foodies will enjoy One Man’s Meat, where Irish blogger Conor Bofin shares his carefully photographed recipes, well-seasoned with humor. We especially enjoyed his recipe for an English classic, toad in the hole, and this amazing hot smoked duck with orange marmalade.

March is Women's History MonthMarch is Women’s History Month

In the past thrity years there have been a flood of women’s diaries and journals have been discovered and published.

So many lived blindingly boring lives trying to be what she was supposed to be. Feminist scholars have found many and later generations recognized the gift their grandmothers left for the world. Several anthologies of these finds have been compiled and published in honor of these women who were invisible and silent except for their pens.

It is hard to describe the variety of women’s diaries, journals, and letters; they resist categorization and comparison They now are called discontinuous prose.  Or writing that is done. Often letters are included in women’s writing. Diaries are often categorized by…

Lake Superior’s Frozen Wonder: The Apostle Islands Ice Caves, Part II


How awesome would this be! It looks amazing and interesting. Thanks for posting.

Travel. Garden. Eat.

The media outlets are still featuring Lake Superior’s ice caves, with temperatures forecasted to reach 30°F (-1°C) this coming weekend, likely to result in large crowds trying to catch a last glimpse of these fleeting wonders.  The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore’s Facebook page posted this update yesterday, reminding all that the ice caves are not a permanent feature (and thankfully, that sub-zero temps are not, either, as many of us were beginning to wonder):

As the weather warms up, the walk to the ice caves will be more pleasant – but that also means that icicles will start melting and falling and there will be more slush on the ice – make sure not to stand under ice formations and wear waterproof boots – with ice cleats!

The Apostle Islands’ Facebook post provided a nice segue to another group of photos from our ice caves visit last Saturday.  Sub-zero temps meant no threat…

Our Terrarium Project Homeschooling.


imageThis is one of the crickets that the children caught for our terrarium and the frogs that were inside. They enjoyed learning about crickets and the way they live their life. Well until they get eaten by the frogs, and lizards! It was a wonderful experience and one that we will continue throughout the upcoming years.
