Wouldn't it be nice if this photo was an accurate representation of my summer? Unfortunately, it's not. Things have gotten crazier and crazier, my writing has gone way downhill, my stress levels have spiked, and the blog, as you may have noticed, is suffering as a result. This makes me sad, because I value this … Continue reading Taking Some Time Off.
Hi everyone! I almost forgot to blog today, but not for reasons of stress and bad news as has been all too common lately. This week I've had (almost) nothing but good things happen. Apart from possibly hovering around the edges of heatstroke for six hours while pulling thistles out of a field in the … Continue reading Happy Update.
You guys, I am so sorry about the state of this blog lately. All I can say is that I've only had two days where I could just be at home and rest since the end of March, and I don't foresee that schedule letting up until the middle of May. I am … Continue reading Update (in case you’re wondering).

What a relief, as my first drafts are usually worse than I remember. So anyway, you'll … Continue reading Baptizing the New Year.
In 2015, I was feeling distinctly Scrooge-ish. In 2016, I was feeling more Cratchitty. This year, I'm feeling a kind of happy blend of the two. As in, I'm definitely wandering around "humbugging" every five minutes or so, but in a cheerful way. If that makes any sense. Anyway, here's a roundup of my favorite … Continue reading Third Annual Christmas Post.

Sheerah, granddaughter or great-granddaughter of Joseph and his wife Asenath. She is mentioned in one sentence in the middle of the Old Testament "begats." One sentence, and that's all. But what a sentence: "His daughter was Sheerah, who built Lower and Upper Beth Horon as well as Uzzen Sheerah." -1 Chronicles 7:24 She built cities. … Continue reading She Built Cities.
For forgetting to blog yesterday, that is. HOWEVER. Today is St. Crispin's day, which means it's time for this post to show back up again. Come on, folks, click the link. I'm off to watch Henry V now.
Hello there. I'm currently house/pet sitting for some dear friends of mine, so I'm pretty happy that I actually remembered that it's a blogging day. Especially as I am right smack in the middle of a Planet Earth binge. How have I not watched this show before? What have I been doing with my life? … Continue reading Pretty Dang Majestic.
