Read Across America

One Fish, Two Fish… Today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Theodor Geisel would be 116 years old. This master of the creative word left us a treasury of stories for both young and old. From learning one’s ABC’s to recognizing that a person’s a person… Continue Reading “Read Across America”

Make it Monday | An Update

Make it Monday, my weekly blog post about creative ways to practice self-care, will be on hiatus until March. Why? Well, because self-care is necessary with Baby Boy #2 set to arrive in about 4 weeks! Reading Wednesday Book Reviews will continue on through… Continue Reading “Make it Monday | An Update”

Make it Monday | Santa Lucia

Make it Monday | Making Fun with Pumpkins, part 1

Whether you like Halloween or not, pumpkins are a mainstay of Fall decorations, food choices, and all-around-fun. Pumpkins come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. From adorable baby pumpkins, to flat, white pumpkins, to humongous, award-winning pumpkins. Some are better for decoration… Continue Reading “Make it Monday | Making Fun with Pumpkins, part 1”

Make it Monday | Making Leafy Memories

One of my favorite aspects of fall is the changing colors. I know I’m not alone, especially considering there are whole maps forecasting when peak fall foliage will occur. Mid-October is usually when leaves turn across central Wisconsin.
