Theme Thursday: Good Jorb!

rodanthe rainbow

Soooooo, since it’s been a while since we’ve done Theme Thursday, I thought we could start off easy.  Some picture, at some point, that you did a good jorb on.  One that Coach Z would be proud of: And, since this is Theme Thursday, and the one rule is there are no rules, if you’ve […]

The Walking Dead Recap: Strangers


Hi again!  It’s Tuesday morning, and I’m still on a Walking Dead high.  So let’s get to discussing, shall we? “Strangers”, this week’s episode, both served as a sort of breather after last week’s nail-biter and allowed for some of that character development the writing team did so well last season. The cold open features […]

In Which You, the Good Readers of Clan Donaldson, Boss Me Around


It’s Monday.  Ken’s work schedule changed again- again! I know there’s only so often I can complain about a work schedule that doesn’t remain the same week-to-week, but rarely even stays the same daily, but allow me this one more time, please?  Thanks.  I owe you one- and I just came downstairs to find Rocky […]

The Walking Dead Returns


Tonight marks the triumphant (and I mean triumphant- after the amazing job the writers and actors did on season 4, I am so excited for this new season) return of The Walking Dead.  As I did last season, I plan on recapping each episode in light of our faith- but I have to wait 24 […]

Seven Quick Takes


1) Yesterday, all of us loaded up in the van and drove to Boston, where I was interviewed for The Gist.  Danielle Bean did the interview, and she was so sweet and kind, even when I totally spazed out and found myself talking a great deal about core muscles.  In an interview about my book. […]

Autumn in the Home, or: Squashplosion

final blog hop

When the very lovely Bonnie asked me to show off how we decorate for fall over here, it reminded me of a story. SHOCKING, I know: As young, childless newlyweds, Ken and I had some degree of disposable income to spend on things like seasonal decorations.  Our first Christmas in our first home, for example, […]
