At the beginning of this year, I set a reading goal for myself on Goodreads. I don't read with the intensity that I did when I was in middle and high school , when I'd finish a new book every couple of days. My annual average the past several years has been around 12-14 books,… Continue reading Book Reviews – August Reads
Good morning friends! There's a lot going on this week, so this will be super short...I just wanted to share some project progress with you. I completed another Little Box of Crochet project! This one is a sweet little clutch. I still need to weave in the ends; I should have a review sometime this… Continue reading A Quick Crochet Post

So now they're either in review or revision mode...and one can wait after 8/31 so I'll have something to do when our… Continue reading A Weekend Recap
Somehow it's already August 1st, which means that all the reports I've been working on since November need to be completed by August 31st. I have edits back on three reports, and still need to finish three (four?) neglected reports. It will all come together, but it will be a little crazy. I was rescheduling… Continue reading Why is it August?
