Time Slips

Posted on February 29, 2012 1:13 pm under General

Thanks to my friends, who stop by my blog so faithfully, and an apology for my delinquency in returning the visits. Time has gotten away from me lately. The days seem to drift together and I doubt that even a sack of Rolex, Timex and Bertucci watches could keep me on schedule.

When time gets short, it seems that the things I enjoy most, are the ones that get postponed. I love reading the results of a Book Blurb Friday or a Succinctly Yours photo. The creativity and variety never cease to amaze me. Nonetheless, I’m finding myself a week behind in reading them. I hope to catch up some today. Please be patient with me, I’ll be by soon.

We now have far more viewing options at half the cost. Read more »

My granddaughter began homeschooling in second grade, but this year she became a virtual public school student through the K12 program. Some of the administrative pieces have been annoying, but with one exception, the curriculum is awesome. The exception is the music curriculum, which seems determined to destroy the student’s love of music. The lessons feature incessantly repeated exercises and an instructor, whose voice makes nails on a chalkboard seem soothing. We all breathe a sigh of relief when a lesson ends. Read more »
