Greetings, salutations, and all that other jazz. It’s heading into mid-August and nearly everyone on social media seems to be posting back to school pictures already, which seems rather early and I’m not even a teacher! For all of you who are a bit shell-shocked by the sudden arrival of back to school, here’s something … Continue reading Sunday Comics: Back To School Edition
It took me 28 days to wish you a Happy New Year, so I think that waiting nearly 7 months for the next post seems to be right on schedule…right? How is it already July?

Hello and Happy Monday! That was totally forced. Not because I don’t mean it (I do), but because I’ve been sitting here for almost 30 minutes trying to figure out how to start this post. You may have noticed in my post yesterday a new category: 100 Days of Blogging. If you didn’t notice, don’t … Continue reading 100 Days of Blogging
This month’s wine writing challenge (#33 if you’re keeping track or ignored the title of this post) is Once Upon A Time, which was selected by last month’s winner Wining with Mel.
