Don’t Let the Silence Fool You

I realize I haven’t posted about any geocaches recently, but you shouldn’t take that to mean Chad and I haven’t been out looking for any. Quite the opposite, in fact. Since my last post, we’ve almost doubled our find count, up to 27, and even completed our first geocaching challenge. … Continue reading

Easter Eggs, Beaver Dams, and Chad on a Swing

NOTE: This geocache blog might contain spoilers. As with all things geocaching, proceed at your own risk.   I need a bigger backpack. I decided this after our geocaching outing Sunday. Ever since we started caching, we’ve been making mental notes of things we should take with us to make … Continue reading

Steps to Everywhere

NOTE: This geocache blog might contain spoilers. As with all things geocaching, proceed at your own risk. Chad and I finally got a chance to do some more geocaching last Saturday. It was a gorgeous, sunny day, and we knocked out six easy caches in downtown Kernersville. Because this post … Continue reading

Death Spiral No More, and Three K’ville Caches

So, I’d only planned to do a geocache blog post, but I have bigger news than that. I FINISHED A STORY! I haven’t done that since “Through Ashes Returned”, which garnered me a very nice rejection letter that sent me into a tailspin that’s lasted — oh, dear — about … Continue reading

A Bridge Not Too Far

Snagged another geocache after work last night. Just one. It was a little less than a mile from the house, so we took advantage of the gorgeous weather to skip the gym and walk to the cache site instead. Of course, we were a fair ways from the house when … Continue reading

Modern Day Treasure Hunters

A Heartwarming Knit

When I was a kid, my stepmom tried to teach me how to crochet. That didn’t go as well as either of us hoped. I eventually learned how to crochet a stitch, but I could never double back to make a second row, much less a third or fourth. None … Continue reading

By Popular Demand: The Flying Cow!

Chad got me lots of great gifts for Christmas this year, including a fountain pen display case, an F nib for my Pelikan M205, a Franklin-Christoph pen holder/journal cover, a ukelele, and a flying cow. Yes, a flying cow. When I posted a picture of my Christmas goodies to Twitter, … Continue reading

Reflections on my First #NaNoWriMo

It’s December 1st, which means that midnight last night was pencils down and check your word count for hundreds of thousands of writers participating in NaNoWriMo. For once, I was one of them. I didn’t manage to write 50,000 words, but I did knock out a little over 21,000. And … Continue reading
