Still Be Calm and Be Safe

Still Be Calm and Be Safe I think this is a perfect time to quote the classic film, Anchorman.  Ron Burgundy: Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast. Champ Kind: It jumped up a notch. Ron Burgundy: It did, didn’t it? The world has...

Be Calm

Be Calm Two days ago, I thought had my bookworm all planned out.  Then last night I read a director thread on the Coronavirus, which led to some internet searching.  Now I find myself staring at the screen, fretting over what to write and trying to keep my...

Taste Test

Grouchy

“Pretending to feel a way other than how I actually feel is not a gift God gave me” – Nadia Bolz-Weber I am grouchy.  I am feeling overwhelmed and as I told my husband, “I can feel the fire burning,” like a volcano ready to explode.  I cannot name one reason...
