Life unfolds ... some of it here. This blog began as a way to focus on the good things in the midst of a crisis and be a connection to friends and family when it seemed to take all of my time just to weather the storms. It seems to have transformed into a sanctuary of musing and inspiration. Feel free to join me!

Selling Girl Scout Cookies
As I look at my white board after my daughter visited my office last week, I recall a line from my grandmother's poem ... "Annette and Ingrid have orderly minds and even make lists when they play." My daughter seems to have inherited my love of lists!
She will probably inherit my schedule as well, which right now is very demanding and the reason why I have not kept up with kid photos on the blog! But I'm taking a moment today because I wanted to help my little Brownie with her "sell cookies" goal. Last year she wanted to do a super-fun video, and we made it happen with music and photos. This year she wanted to get a Girl Scout "build a bear" outfit and have a photo shoot with her bear selling cookies. UNFORTUNATELY we might be too busy this weekend, which is the last weekend to take orders. Hopefully I'll have some photos to share, but just in case, I wanted family and friends to know that you can comment here or email me (or littls M) and she can tell you all about the cookies and her goals, etc.
I'm so proud of her ... if weather warms up, she and our neighbor will be going out together to sell cookies. They have become good friends and since my daughter is a big talker and our neighbor is in speech therapy and has a very difficult time speaking, it will be a great thing for both of them. I'm imagining Moses & Aaron wearing Girl Scout sashes! LOL!
And just so everyone knows, the Girl Scout Cookie Sale in Magic Empire Council starts with individual order taking January 19-February 3. Booth sales happen in March, and girls can still take individual orders until then (and fill the orders with booth cookies). This year I have recruited help on the post office side of things so cookies will go out right away in March!!
OH ... and guess who was on TV? Click here to find out!

First Chess Tournament
What a girl! I didn't even know she REALLY knew how to play, so I was trying to make sure she understood the announcements. Not only did she understand, but she explained to me what they were talking about!
