Distant, but timely learning..


Isabel turns 15 today.  We had a cinnamon roll, sausage, scrambled, buttery breakfast potato breakfast. She opened gifts, and we have a white napkin Italian dinner planned.  Lots to be happy about, but when you're 15, and COVID is snowing on your party (snowed 6" last night), it feels more like this...

Happy Birthday Isabel

now go wash your hands ;-)


Chilly today, but the spring sun and furry friends seem to shorten the distance to other important things.


Crossfit, yoga, running, fit girl training, and that's just last week.


smart lights. smarter kid.

bridge building

It has to span 21 inches, weigh no more than 3 oz. and be made exclusively of toothpicks and glue. Last year the winning design held 153 lbs.


Isabel wanted a different bed...  I gave her some graph paper, a tape measure and told her to show me what she wanted.  Today she put blade to wood (she really did make most of the cuts) and with a couple more Saturdays of work, she'll have a a custom bed of her own design.  While not really an upgrade from THIS, I'm sure the dogs are gonna love this one.

Cold , grey and a few snowflakes for April's end.


Nearly everyone loves Ozzy. He's just 9 weeks old, but for a puppy seems a nice balance of snuggle and spunk.  On the other hand, Samson just wants his bed back.
