Wordless Wednesday: Mystery Tree

Most of the trees in the regional park I walk through each morning are covered in bright green, new leaves, but occasionally I see these trees, their white flowers shocking among all of the brown and green of the spring forest.  I’m hoping that one of my readers can tell me what they are!

Is the Dominos Pizza Tracker Real?

When we left the story, our hero was eating cold pizza and mourning over the realization that the Dominos Pizza Tracker was not real.  And now, the conclusion of the tale… Apparently while I was looking out the window and hoping that my lunch would arrive, communications were being sent around the food chain within…

Wordless Wednesday: Going Home

As much as I love where I live and the opportunities my children have as a result of where we live, I still want them to experience the beauty of where I grew up.  Over winter break we were able to spend some time in Pennsylvania where they had the chance to meet my parents’…

Wordless Wednesday: Fall Colors

My daughter wishes that she were still swimming in the community’s pool.  My son would like to lounge around in the air-conditioning watching Phineas and Ferb.  But I’m ready for fall.  The oranges, the reds, the yellows. The smell of warm apple crisp with just the right amount of cinnamon.  The dried cornstalks, hay bails,…
