Process and Craft   I have been a wife and teacher for 39 years, a mother for almost 35 of those years, and a dedicated daughter for nearly three scores. My desire to be a writer has been burning for at least 50 of those years. There have been successes here and there, but I… Continue reading #NaBloPoMo Day 13

Mission Accomplished #Weekend Coffee Share 11-11-18

Good Morning, Everyone! The day is just beginning. Get yourself a cup of coffee, and I will catch you up. Mission accomplished. I had two live performances to do this week. Well, not exactly performances. It was more like presentations. There was the televised interview with Linda Frank, writer and LTV host of The Writer’s… Continue reading Mission Accomplished #Weekend Coffee Share 11-11-18

Weekend Coffee Share: Happy New School Year

It’s another Weekend Coffee Share with you. How’s your coffee? Although summer is my favorite season, I was glad to return to school and catch up with my colleagues. We are a special extended school family. The first three days of kindergarten was busy, fun, and exhausting. As is with most K-kids, there were so… Continue reading Weekend Coffee Share: Happy New School Year

Weekend Coffee Share: Post Beach Week

Good Morning, Everyone. Now that we are having coffee together, you can see that I am back from Beach Week(s). The ocean was glorious, the beach warm, the cottage perfectly cozy, and the days lazy and rejuvenating. We shared this little piece of heaven with our dear friends playing, eating, reconnecting, and collecting memories. Now… Continue reading Weekend Coffee Share: Post Beach Week

Blogging A-Z April 2018 Challenge

Blogging A-Z Reflections

Blogging A-Z 2018 Challenge was my first blogging challenge. I was so pleased with myself when the twenty-sixth day arrived, and there were twenty-six posts! Usually, my attention span to daily tasks that do not impact anyone but myself tends to be short-lived. Therefore, diets and exercise routines easily fall away. This success was a big boost to… Continue reading Blogging A-Z Reflections

#Weekend Coffee Share April 8, 2018

If we were having coffee together, I would tell you that I have been on spring break, which gave me time to get ahead of the Blogging A-Z Challenge. I have been finding that the writing flows and I am surprisingly organized. My theme is Food Stories Remembered. I have lots of fodder to draw from. The… Continue reading #Weekend Coffee Share April 8, 2018

#Weekend Coffee Share-March 24th

Good morning, Everyone. Nice to share a quiet cup of coffee before I get going on the day. The weather took center stage again this week. Another nor'easter hit home on Long Island just in time for the spring equinox. This was the fourth in three weeks. Early dismissal from school got everyone home before the roads became treacherous. It was… Continue reading #Weekend Coffee Share-March 24th

#Weekend Coffee Share March 17, 2018

If we were having coffee together, I would tell you about the weather. Another Nor’easter blew onto Long Island, the third one in two weeks.  Although my neck of the woods did not get more than three inches of snow, the east end was clobbered, closing schools for another boring snow day. I’ll be making… Continue reading #Weekend Coffee Share March 17, 2018

#Weekend Coffee Share March 4, 2018

Good Sunday morning. If we were having coffee together, I would catch you up on a busy week. My plate was quite full in getting through an observation (after some 37 years teaching one would think an observation would be a piece of cake, but it always rattles me). The observation went well. My first… Continue reading #Weekend Coffee Share March 4, 2018

#WeekendCoffeeShare February 24, 2018

           If we were having coffee together, I would catch you up on a busy week. Actually, I have been drinking coffee all day today trying to catch up from the busy week. This past week was my school’s winter break. I traveled to Long Beach, California on my Mini West Coast Tour. My cousins,… Continue reading #WeekendCoffeeShare February 24, 2018
