    Just four years - Feb 15th, 2014
    Just Frances is four years old. Wow! Can you believe that I’ve been spewing this utter nonsense for that long? And if you thought I might be nearing the end of rubbish things to talk about, you’re wrong. (No apologies. If you don’t like it, you can just stop reading!) [more...]

    Fun with maths - Aug 4th, 2011
    [Please note that the ‘S’ at the end of maths was intentional, and not an error. It’s part of my attempt to use that funny British English stuff, since that’s (almost) home. However, I’m not quite ready to add the ‘S’ to words such as toward, forward, and backward. [more...]

    An awesome Monday - Aug 1st, 2011
    I’ve had a pretty awesome Monday, if you wondered. It started when I woke up at 6 a.m. and checked my email. That’s when I learned that I’d been awarded a £2,000 Scotland Saltire Scholarship toward my tuition at the University of Stirling. [more...]

    At the beach: A holiday recap - Jul 25th, 2011
    I suppose it’s time for a holiday recap, since my Washington Coast holiday is over. So, here goes! [more...]

    On my holidays - Jul 22nd, 2011
    So here I am at Copalis Beach with my pretty new gadget, LittleGreen. Yes, my holidays have officially begun. Well, that’s if you can have a holiday when you don’t have a job. [more...]

    Now about that marathon… - Jul 20th, 2011
    You’d be forgiven for forgetting that I’m meant to be training for a marathon, since I’ve not really brought up the subject recently, but I really am still planning to participate (and complete) the Loch Ness Marathon in Scotland on October 2. [more...]

    2010 Christmas card and letter - Dec 16th, 2010
    I sent out my Christmas cards on Monday and, as promised, am sharing the card and letter with all of you. After all, just because you’re not on my mailing list doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get the fun of a Christmas card and letter. Right? So, without further ado … [more...]

    Ugly thoughts - Aug 6th, 2010
    Many years ago, a friend came to visit me. She exclaimed excitedly that she’d been walking by a vintage clothing shop in Portland, Oregon, and in the window display she noticed the ugliest handbag she’d ever seen, which made her think of me. [more...]

    Anger management - May 25th, 2010
    I re-entered the world of bad golfing last summer thinking that it would be a good way to vent frustration and anger stemmed from the grief of losing Paul. What I found instead was that it was a good distraction from the grief, rather than an outlet for it. [more...]

    Distractions - May 21st, 2010
    I don’t know if it’s better to face things head-on or to find distractions, but personally I prefer the latter in many cases; today being one of those cases. So, instead of spending the day thinking about what I didn’t want to think about—the fact that my husband died before we made it to our 4th wedding anniversary, meaning that he wasn’t here to celebrate our 5th anniversary with me today—I’m distracting myself from my reality.

    Retail therapy - Apr 25th, 2010
    I’ve been feeling very sad and lonely the last few days so when my neighbor called to see if I wanted to drive into the city today to cheer me up, I was more than happy for the distraction. What I didn’t realize was that I would actually have a successful shopping day, which was an added cheer for the day! [more...]
