Just another day…

John went to take the car to get it's oil changed. Sean played Fortnite. I stared at these pictures from Memorial Day 2016 that have been on my desk for 5 days. I need to go to Costco and the grocery store. My three weeks of food in the freezer has dwindled to maybe 4... The stuff I really don't want anyway. Wednesday, I watched a Authentique Paper Facebook live where the crafter used "scraps" to make a subway tile background. I've been thinking about how to do this on the Memorial Day … [Read more...]

Civil Discourse

Let me start by saying, I don't like my city councilperson. I didn't like her when she was on the school board, I don't like her now. I think she doesn't listen, she is out of touch, and she sides with power, not with people. Just my experience. When her District 9 Newsletter hit my email today, I read it. I don't normally. It's mostly rah-rah stuff. I read it this time. I want to know what we are going to do about the police. There was some fluff, then the protest is ok as long as... … [Read more...]

Days meld together

It's the last day of school. The teachers closed the classrooms and walked away. Any hopes I had for continuing learning over the summer using SJUSD resources is gone.

John reminded me that we still had the text book. We will move back to paper. Speaking of paper... John rode into … [Read more...]

It’s Wednesday, June 3

I'm still keeping pretty silent on social media. The school district said that testing and contact tracing in place before the kids can go back to school. I don't know of many parents that are going to go for that. I don't mind the contact tracing, but the testing... It's not a comfortable thing. I'm just not sure. I'm sure that the contact tracing is going to be a problem for most. I made dinner at lunch time today. I like it better that way actually. I'd rather snack at dinner. … [Read more...]

The aftermath of LOAD…

I'm not done with LOAD. Yeah, I took a break. But I still want to scrapbook, still want to tell stories. Still want to talk about what is going on in the world, even if I am part of the problem. Knowing I'm part of the problem, I'm working now, but not posting until June 9. That way social media can be used for those whose voices need to be heard. That's not mine. I noticed that my 2016 album is quite light. It's not that there weren't stories, it was that I was in mourning for my … [Read more...]
