I am Conservative. I am vaccinated.

I hate talking about politics. I always have. Ironically, I now host a weekly Op/Ed Hour on Saturday mornings for the Georgia Radio Reading Service. I make it a personal goal for my listeners to not be able to tell my bias or leanings… Continue Reading “I am Conservative. I am vaccinated.”

Scattered bricks

I awaken and it’s still dark, yet I know that it’s almost time to get up. I go to the bathroom to retrieve my phone…4:35AM. Yes. 25 more minutes. Not enough to go back to sleep, but enough to climb under the covers and… Continue Reading “Scattered bricks”

Beauty in the Broken

Kintsuji. I had to look up the word–but I remembered the concept. This was something that I heard about recently, found intriguing, and filed in my mind for such a time as this. The Japanese have an art that is formed through the repair… Continue Reading “Beauty in the Broken”

Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 11

The first drama of the day: Lillie lost her second tooth. (Well, I pulled it to be exact.) My tough-as-nails daughter can take vaccines, bee stings, and COVID tests without shedding a tear, but tooth-pulling is another story entirely. I begged her to let… Continue Reading “Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 11”

Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 10

Best Day EVER! (To steal a quote from Tangled…) We finished up (more) laundry and checked out of our apartment. Subway opened at 10AM and provided us with our picnic lunch again today. The two young guys working in the store were 14 and… Continue Reading “Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 10”

Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 9

I Got Poop! This is the worst name for a porta-potty company ever… We left the Kimball at Temple Square and headed toward Moab before 8:00 AM. We stopped at what would have been a pretty neat rest stop–great views and even had a… Continue Reading “Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 9”

Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 8

Checkout was at 10:00 AM. Kevin and I got up early to drive back to the overlook to watch the sunrise over the backside of Grand Teton. The air was cool, but there was a warm breeze. It seemed so strange and opposite of… Continue Reading “Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 8”

Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 7

Pica and Pika. (That’s what Edwin said I should name this post.) This morning we chilled. Seriously, I went back to bed after breakfast. We continued working through the laundry and the kids had more home-made donuts from Yeti Post and watched TV. Late… Continue Reading “Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 7”

Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 6

This morning I woke up early to go and get some of the home-made donuts from Yeti Post. (See yesterday’s blog for more information.) I went to the take-out window, donned my mask, and ordered some delicious breakfast fare to take back to my… Continue Reading “Wood Family Goes West 2020: Day 6”

Wood Family goes West: Day 5

Today we went from Cody, Wyoming to Driggs, Idaho via Yellowstone National Park. Kevin, Edwin, and Mont went early to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West before we left Cody. I stayed at the cabin bathing Lillie and Morgan and packing up. Kevin… Continue Reading “Wood Family goes West: Day 5”
