It’s Hard to Be Humble…

We went to the farmers market. We went to the art show, which was filled with wonderful stuff at reasonable prices. There was one particular¬†artist, Judd Mann, from whom I’d like to buy Christmas presents for everyone I know. I gathered up everyone’s cards, so that I can approach them later about their websites if […]

I’m reading Up for Renewal by Cathy Alter, one of my Amazon Vine books. They also sent me Rosetta Stone Italian. I am still working through the French set, but I haven’t actually learned any new words yet. I hope it is improving my grammar and so on, but I think I’ll be able to […]

Here’s my report on the mail-order clothing experience. (Just in case you haven’t been hanging upon my every word this month, here’s the background — I have gone back to teaching, and the vague sense that I ought to dress better for client meetings than I do for The Dark Art at my computer developed […]

Here are some pictures from my walk yesterday. The walk got squished into the day yesterday between #2 son’s dental appointment, which was followed by breakfast at Chick-Fil-A and driving him to school, and a meeting with my bookstore client to get her website content written up. Then came book club, the actual writing up […]

Here’s Erin, who has gotten a couple of inches since last photographed. Class went well yesterday, it seemed to me. I gave them the required speeches and pep talks, had them do something active and surprising, modeled a peer review with them, gave them an assignment, and left with the consciousness of a job well […]

Yesterday was a good day. I got my morning work done, did a workout DVD, had a good meeting with nice people, got my errands done, enjoyed a healthy lunch at the table, not at my computer, and then worked steadily at a fun and challenging task — I had the house to myself — till […]

My solo went well. #1 son starts school today. I got the syllabus turned in. The IT guy from church arranged a meeting with me. #1 daughter returned safely to Cowboy Land. I rearranged the kitchen for greater efficiency.Client #4 is, as she puts it, rompin’ and stompin’ with her newly improved website — she […]

It’s time for the seasonal transition. School has started for #2 son and will start this week for the rest of us. The HGP is starting up. Choirs will be beginning again. We’ll be robing again in church next week. The rule is that all the uncertainties and overwork and chaos of the summer are […]

The horrible dog (I won’t name names) kept me up all night with his whining and crying, so I got up just in time to rush off to Jammin’ Java to meet a friend for morning coffee. Next was the farmers’ market, where I scored some Cream Sausage tomatoes, bitter melon, late peaches, and some […]

Yesterday was the day I thought would actually be a day off, or at least mostly a day off, but that didn’t happen. In fact, I had this whole list of things I was going to do this month while on hiatus from my Big Client, including taking some time off before I begin teaching, […]
