Waubonsie State Park

I had a day off, so I headed off to the great outdoors. Iowa, to be specific. Iowa? Well, the high, woodsy bluffs right across the river. Full disclosure? I really like trees. I like walking under them. I like the shade. I like the way the wind blows through them, and the birds who

IWSG: When the Going Gets Tough

  The awesome co-hosts for the June 1 posting of the IWSG are SE White, Cathrina Constantine, Natalie Aguire, Joylene Nowell Butler, and Jacqui Murray! It’s another last-minute post for me this week.

My Boundaries Are FOR My Goals

I’m doing better this March than I have for a while. More progress toward my goals. More keeping track of that progress when it happens. More… uhm… insisting on boundaries? I think that’s probably a good way to put it. I needed to have my schedule fixed, again. And it took effort to convince my
