I didn’t even realize last Monday was the first day of Spring. Happy Spring! The picture above is clearly a shot from fall. It’s the view of my homestretch on my running route. I had to give it a proper goodbye. We had several other proper goodbyes this weekend including Continue reading
There are some pros and cons about being a first born rule follower. Con: I can be predictable. Pro: I can set my own rules around things I want / know I need to do and then I have to do them because as a rule follower, I am obligated.
Already mid-way through March! Small changes on these Weekly Top 5 lists. First up: “Weekly Top 5, Vol. 8″…all by itself, it’s too Dewey Decimal System for me. I like the organization it provides, but it needs a little pizzazz. So I’m adding some words to it (don’t worry, I already went back and added words to all the previous posts.
