Duck Drama

Alright, so we have a lot of duck drama going on around here.  I will fully own that the problem started with me.  As many of you know, our OG duck, Downton, had a sister that got eaten by the dinosaur that lives in our pond.  I wanted Downton to have a real duck family of her own so when Tractor Supply started selling … Read More Duck Drama

Happy Birthday my love!  You got up this morning and told me you are 58.  So, let me start by saying you look REALLY good for your age!  (He is actually 42) A few years ago when we were in Re-Engage (marriage workshop) the workbook taught us to “study” our partner.  This is the art of paying attention and learning what makes the other … Read More Happy Birthday Jesse!

A Humbling #1 (why am I even telling you this?)

A humbling.  That is the best way to describe it.  As you are aware, my OG’s, I am preparing a book proposal for the She Speaks conference.  I hired a writing/clarity coach to help me polish it up.  I approached our meeting rehearsing all of my responses to his congratulations of me being one of the most brilliant writers he had ever worked with.  … Read More A Humbling #1 (why am I even telling you this?)
