I’m not sure if it’s a blessing, or a curse. Maybe it’s both. I’ll just come straight out and say it. I have an unusually good sense of smell. I hate to brag. But, yes. I’ve got a good sniffer. Case in point, I have called the city gas company on several occasions alertingContinue reading “Assault with a deadly pair of socks.”

17 Things I Learned During the Christmas Season of 2017
Each year for the past several, I have taken the time to sit down and write out my thoughts and ponderings at the end of the Christmas season. Granted, by the end of Christmas break (yes, it’s January 6th, but my kids haven’t been back to school yet) my “thoughts and ponderings” have been boiledContinue reading “17 Things I Learned During the Christmas Season of 2017”
When I was 10 years old, my dad took the position of pastor at Emmanuel Community Church. Six weeks later, my mom died suddenly in our kitchen while sitting at the table. She had been reading a book, and drinking a cup of coffee when she began to collapse. Needless to say, it was aContinue reading “Home Base.”
So, I released my first book this week.

My dad called me earlier this summer and sent me on a mission. He was out of town and afraid Costco would sell out of a large raft he’d seen and he thought we needed it for our upcoming lake vacation. Operation vacation floatation accepted. And then I stood frozen in the aisle at Costco. I stared atContinue reading “Island Issues.”
I’ve heard it said that no lake vacation is complete without a man-made snail habitat. Er, something like that. But I can’t argue with the saying, because it certainly rang true for us. While spending a week with our extended family, my daughters and their cousin not only discovered the snails in the shallow water ofContinue reading “Snail Spa”
A Pain Around the Neck
Almost every Spring for the majority of our marriage my husband has hosted a fundraising banquet for his local ministry, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. And, being the good wife that I am, I buy him a new tie every year for the event. I know, I’m pretty sweet. What’s more, I don’t just buy any tie,Continue reading “A Pain Around the Neck”
