The Weekly Ramble

girls with cucumbers on their eyes

These people crack me up. This is what the girls did earlier in the week after I sliced up a bunch of cucumbers. They ended up eating them afterward so how can I complain? The week went really well. Somehow I was able to catch up on a bunch of writing projects last weekend so […]

Ebook and Curriculum Sales (Frugal Friday)

FrugalFriday

I’ve fretted over this post a lot. I don’t want to push consumerism. I read this post last week, and it had its impact. But, on the other hand, I know what a blessing it is to me to find out that something I’ve been wanting to get is finally on sale. I like to […]

They were but a twinkle in the eye of a creative developer. In the years since, the internet has grown […]
