Santorini, while small, is too big to get around on foot, so we learned quickly how to use the buses. From what we could tell, all routes ran through the main town, Thira. To get from one city to another, the general route was to take a bus to Thira and then a second bus to the destination. The timetables were a bit confusing – the one I was handed didn’t match that at the […]
Another item on my NYC wish list was to take the girls to Tavern on the Green for lunch. More expensive than most places where we dine, we knew it was going to be a splurge. Watching the snow fall on the park as we ate our delicious meal was a perfect way to celebrate our Thanksgiving week in the big city.
Today is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day and National Nougat Day. Chloe left early for her district band concert in Covington. I worked during the morning, then spent the afternoon at the Red Cross. Still a lot of work to be done, but getting closer! I got stuck in terrible traffic on the way home. Th girls and I had tacos for dinner and took care of many items on our list of things […]
Today is Old New Year’s Day and Waffle Day. After a typical early morning, I headed out for my first Photo 1 class at The Showcase School. I was nervous heading in, but ended up enjoying it and even learning a few things! Back at home, I had lunch, worked and took care of some chores and errands. When the three girls came home, they went to Jimmy John’s to get us some dinner. Chloe […]
Today is National Chocolate-Covered Raisin Day. I got up so early that I had time to exercise and take care of things before getting the girls up for school. I had a productive day at work and took a little time to walk to the post office and run other errands. In the late afternoon, I headed to the Red Cross to volunteer and go to the DAT meeting. Stopped at Kroger on the way […]
Today is National Puppy Day and National Chip & Dip Day and World Meteorological Day. Back to a weekday routine. The girls got off to school. I worked a while then Phelix and I went to Arabia for a hike before the week truly gets crazy. In the afternoon, Chloe had friends over to help sort Legos, then she and I headed out to the library. Rob went to do a presentation at the rec […]

Today is World Water Day and National Goof Off Day. Rob and I got up very early to get to our posts for the Georgia Marathon. Soon after we returned home, soaking wet, Camille and Claire left for Pippin. Rob got us a pizza from DaVinci’s for lunch and worked on Legos. Chloe and Rob went to Jane’s recital, then Chloe had some friends over to practice flute. Camille got home from the cast and […]
Today is National French Bread Day. I got up early, took care of things around the house, then headed out with Phelix for a quick hike at Arabia. He was great on the trail, but then barked at two of our neighbors in our parking deck. Argh! I headed right back out to go to Target for some groceries and other sundries. Rob gave Phelix a bath while I was out. When I got home […]
Today is National Ravioli Day and National Quilting Day and Spring Equinox and Snowman Burning Day. Sick. Sick. Sick. Hoping it is just allergies, but I could barely move today. The girls came home after school for a few minutes, then Camille headed off to the play and Chloe headed off to a basketball game. I tried to work, but I could not think clearly. Instead, I read The Magician’s Land: A Novel (Magicians Trilogy) […]
The ferry to Liberty Island also includes a stop at Ellis Island. At one point, both of my girls were interested in immigration, but not so much any more. I think we all used all of our enthusiasm up at Liberty Island. We enjoyed seeing Ellis Island, but we didn’t spend much time there. Camille and Rob did a bit of the self-guided tour, while I stayed with a floppy Chloe (reminded me of our […]
Today is Swallow’s Return Day and National Chocolate Caramel Day. Took Chloe to school early for her Student Government meeting, then worked the rest of the day. I picked her up afterschool for her appointment, then she picked up our Moore Farm box while I ran to Kroger. Camille stayed late for Pippin. Rob had bike troubles and got home after 7pm, then he and Chloe ran out to Office Depot to send off some […]
Today is Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day. Another typical day of work and chores. Phelix and I went out to Arabia for a quick hike in the late morning. Everyone but Chloe had evening activities – Decatur Makers, Decatur CAPS and Pippin practice … so much for family dinners…
Today is Saint Patrick’s Day. We celebrated by having scalloped potatoes and cabbage for dinner. Phelix dyed his tail green for the day too. I went to the Red Cross to volunteer for a few hours. Finished reading Beautiful Ruins: A Novel by Jess Walter.
Today is National Artichoke Hearts Day. After a typical morning, Phelix and I headed out to Arabia for a quick hike. Back at home, I worked a bit more before reading some of Beautiful Ruins: A Novel by Jess Walter. When Chloe got home, we went to her Reiki appointment where I read the latest Time, including the article America’s Clutter Problem. From there, Chloe and I went to the library and to the bank. […]
