Sweet Jimmy Buffett Time

Yesterday was the first day of summer here in Houston, Texas.  No, not officially, but as far as I am concerned, summer is here.  All the factors are in place – the heat, the mosquitoes, excited children and even more excited teachers, baseball, farmer tans, and Jimmy Buffett.  Hello, summer! Jimmy Buffett played his 20th show… Continue reading Sweet Jimmy Buffett Time

Things I Learned When I Wasn’t Even Trying

There are things I learn because I’m trying to learn something. A new process at work. Lyrics to that song I can’t get out of my head. My boyfriend’s shoe size because I can only buy so many shoes for myself. And then there are those things you learn out of the clear blue sky.… Continue reading Things I Learned When I Wasn’t Even Trying

I think it’s about time for an update

Sometimes, life just gets in the way.  I suppose, in this case, I think that can be a good thing.  It’s been an eventful spring with lots of fun and exciting things happening in this little girl’s life.  Since I’m short on time, I’ll bullet out some of the highlights, photos included (see below)!  And, I promise… Continue reading I think it’s about time for an update

People have often… Continue reading 2 score and 13 years ago…

File this under “gifts for the cheap and desperate”

Returning from hiatus

It’s hard to believe my last post was 8 months ago.  I’d love to say “I’ve been too busy to blog”, but that wouldn’t be entirely true.  I just haven’t taken the time to do it.  And I miss it.  So, I’m back.  And, for those of you who have missed me, I’m sorry to… Continue reading Returning from hiatus

Yes, I am a Pirate…

Disclaimer:  If you’re stumbling onto my blog for the first time, then allow me to warn you:  I am a Parrothead.  I talk a lot (some might argue, too much) about Jimmy Buffett.  Today is no different. Two weeks ago today, this was me: I won’t bother to post a comparison photo.  Let’s just say I… Continue reading Yes, I am a Pirate…
