Busy week, as I am jumping in mid-semester as the new instructor on two writing classes. Nothing too exciting to report. I did take my class to hear a speech on campus by a top economic advisor from the Obsma administration, Kruegger...first name escaping me at the moment. Here's a photo.

And here's a message from my Maddie that she just thought was too cute. Smile, everyone! :)

Happy Hallo-Curio Cabinet!

Found a cute idea on Pinterest that inspired this. We have a built-in curio in the living room, and it was high-time I dust it off and give it a re-do, holiday style! What do you think? This was pretty easy as I had a lot of cute, small decor ready to go. Made up that mummy card earlier this week, and it filled a final space on the shelf just right. :)


It's Still Here!

Amazingly, my Blogger blog is still here. When I searched for it today, I was surprised to see that I didn't even have to log in. The system remembered me, though I haven't posted since March 2010. And I'm using my new MacBook, so I can't imagine how it knew the password. I guess Blogger knew I would be back.

I was inspired to find my blog today by a new friend's blog. She posts all about decorating and cooking and family life, and I started to think that maybe I should blog again. Facebook has all but taken away blog inspiration, given that it's way too easy to update the fun and interesting moments along with photos, as I said two years ago.

But still, here's my little blog, looking so happy to see me. Maybe that means something.

Here's what I did yesterday. I'm having a spurt of Halloween-decorating energy, and can't wait to hang this over the curio in the living room once I get it cleaned up.

So that's where I am today. If I get all my decorating done, I'll post some photos. And, hopefully, I'll be back to my blog sooner rather than later. :)
