There are secrets on the mountain. Things adults know but don't tell their children. The young hear bits and pieces of conversations and become intrigued. They want to explore. Discover.
Without knowing all the details, they can't make good decisions. Their curiosity takes them on journey's they later wish they never went on. It shows them things they wish they never saw.
Some places on the mountain are haunted by those who lived before. People who died violent deaths, or those who did the killing. Bad things do not only happen to adults on the mountain. Children are not safe either.
This morning I spent time updating the About page here on the blog. What I’m doing, because it will make things easier for me in the long run, is changing all the book links here on the blog to universal links.
What this means for me:
I won’t have to go in add links to each new place where a book is offered, every time I add a new one here. I’ll just go to the other site and have them rescan for me. This will save me so much time.
What this means for you:
You’ll have one link to click on that...
Planning journals come in a close second for me, right after my yearly planner. They are so important. Here’s how I know:
A few years back I was so much less organized than I am now. Not that I’m completely organized – yet. I’m still learning how to live in an organized way. Back then I had piles and piles of papers, from loose sheets of notebook paper to Post-Its to backs-of-envelopes to scrap paper. You name it, I had it. Notes were everywhere, on nearly every surface.
Finally I’d had enoug...
On the mountain, children are not any more safe than adults. Sometimes, a fabled monster turns out to be real. Other times, something completely unexpected will happen. And when your parents do not believe in something, you can't change what might happen.
Children learn young to be strong but they are still afraid, wondering if they'll be the next to disappear. The next child the mountain folks search for during the day, and cry for at night.
In part 2 of The Camp Series, Jessica tells of her biggest fear while visiting the family camp up on the mountain, explaining her emotions and thoughts
I’ve enjoyed a different cottage pie every so often since the weather started cooling off, and have made posts here and here about doing so. With the different seasonings I have on hand, and a tweak here-and-there, I can switch things up so making these pies doesn’t get old. The chips I baked the day before. and they were delicious sprinkled over the top.
After befriending a raccoon, Jessica and her cousins learn a disturbing truth about some of their elders. What secret presents itself to the children of the mountain in this first of four stories?
Telling people is a great way to promote your talents, products, and business. It’s okay to do this. Expected, even. Tell everyone you know about your business. Explain to them the services you offer. As a bonus to your business efforts, ask those who you speak with to pass the information along to others, and have them ask those people to do the same.
There are a variety of ways in which you can tell people about your business. Here are a few:
Talk to family and friends. Explain what you are...
I have a confession to make. I’m not always the most organized person, though I’m trying to get better at all the organizational stuff. It takes time, through trial and error, for some of us to pull of organized, and I’m learning new things each year.
I’ve spent a lot of time simplifying, which has been a great help. And I have come across a few ways to be more organized, over the years, that really work for me.
We all have to do it sometime, no matter what we do for a living. We must take a mental health day. A day to relax. To not have to work. To not have to think about how we can expand on our careers.
What is done with this day is up to the individual. Some options include:
When I was a child, I loved being in the woods. My father had a camp, on my grandfather’s property, that had trees all around. And my grandfather’s land at camp was surrounded by woods. As a teenager, the trailer park where my siblings and I lived with my mother and stepfather was also near the woods. We and our friends used to explore the wooded area from our backyard to the University of Maine located between Old Town and Orono. And there were plenty of woods out behind dad’s trailer in Greenbush when I lived there.
Finally bought myself a cheese board! I’ve been wanting to for a while now. At some point I want to have my daughters over for some family time, and this will be a big hit. Who wouldn’t want to share the deliciousness with loved ones?
I love that this board has a place to keep crackers separate from the other foods on each side. I also love that you don’t necessarily need to have cheese on the board, though this arrangement has two goat cheese dips I’m sure you will love. (I’ll be sharing lin...
