It's About Time for Something New Here!

Since moving to Rice Lake, Wisconsin in April 2012, we haven't done a whole lot of traveling that we've written about. I'm going to try to make sure and write about our travels this month though in May 2013. This month's trip will take us out of the snow we just had on May 2 … Continue reading »

Turning Over a New Leaf

I know - it's cliche! Six months ago today we drove away from New Jersey to head to our new home in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. It was the beginning of a new phase in our life - turning over a new leaf. In two days we will have been in our new home for six … Continue reading »

Homeward Bound (On, Wisconsin!)

I love it when I can make a title out of nothing but song titles. Yes, the rumour is true: we're moving to Wisconsin. (The reason you haven't heard the rumour is because I'm starting it now.) New Jersey is beautifully sunny. The friends we've made here are connected at our core. But we just … Continue reading »

Alone At Last!

Last Saturday was a special day. For a few hours Joel and I were alone together, without Fiona. It's the first time in many weeks. We love her dearly but she so needed time to play with a friend. And we so needed some time just the two of us to relax and visit.

Benchmark Printing Saves the Day

We love working with local print shops. In Roseville California we worked with Avalon Graphics and they were always so friendly and helpful - and affordable. We found ourselves in need of a print job for a client while here in Rice Lake. It just so happens that one block away from where Joel's mom … Continue reading »

Working By the Lake

We're working here at The Rice Lake Public Library while Fiona plays and reads. This morning I took a photo from grandma's window showing the lump of snow still not completely melted and the lake in the background. It snowed this morning again. Not much. But it's supposed to be spring! I forgot to post … Continue reading »
