Hellooooo...

It's official...we have moved. Our house is a maze of boxes and furniture waiting to find its final resting place, but the worse of the hot & heavy work of loading and unloading from one house to the the next is thankfully a thing of the past! Last night I even managed to scrape together our first home cooked meal thanks to the grill and some tin foil.


This picture makes me laugh. It looks about like how I felt by dinner time last night. Crooked, a bit off color, and poorly framed. Even so...it feels good to have something to share...and it feels good to be able to post thanks to the Carlisle public library, which is a short 5 block bike ride from our new abode.

I've written several blog posts in my head over the past few days as I've been emotionally process all this change. Who knows if they will ever make it to the screen...I guess only time will tell.

Until next time...whenever that may be...


peace

Glad you are settled (though still having to unpack means only marginally settled). Funny...when I look at that picture, I see a smiling family, lovely woodwork, and a warm, welcoming home.

Yeah! Well, phase one is done....that's got to be a huge relief. I agree with Laurie, the first thing I noticed in the photo was the fact everyone is smiling!
So happy you are getting settled! :)

My Most Read Thoughts

Senseless...

Today while I sat in a classroom supervising students as they worked on their math assignments, I watched Lexi through the window enjoying time with her friends during recess. My heart smiled.

Those moments, moments of learning and carefree fun, those are the moments that SHOULD make up a school day. As a Mom, and an elementary school employee, my heart is breaking over the news and images coming out of Connecticut today. 
I send my kids off to school everyday without a second thought that they will return safely come day's end, just as I'm sure each one of those parents in Newtown did this morning.
Every day I walk into my school for work without a second thought to my personal safety, just as I'm sure each of those teachers, paras, custodians, sectretaries, etc in Newtown did this morning. 
Theories will be published. Evidence will be presented. Words will be exchanged about gun control and the need for change in our current culture of violence. I don't suspec…

DIY: Reusable Produce Bags

With Earth Day festivities gearing up for tomorrow, I thought I'd take a moment to post a short DIY tutorial on making your own reusable cloth produce bags. (Tutorial inspired by my favorite crafty mom blog, Crazy Mom Quilts. Produce bags inspired by running into my friend Laura at the grocery store while she was stuffing her produce into these.) This is my next step in the fight against the excessive use of plastic bags.

Our family has been making small environmentally minded changes in our daily lives over the past few years. We use reusable shopping bags. We've stopped buying/using Ziploc bags and plastic wrap. I'm trying to commute around town via bike more. I'm being more mindful about where the food we buy comes from and how it was produced. We more often hang our laundry on the line to dry in the spring and summer instead of just throwing it in the dryer. (Which is convenient at the moment since our dryer has decided to quit drying.) As we use up chemically clean…

Sunday Morning Silly...

Once in a while Dando's curiosity urges him to venture off the bookshelf so he check out other toys in the house.




I think he thinks Froggy is missing a few marbles.
