Green bridge of doom

I’ll be working hard today, and doing it around three guys who are in the early throes of snow day joy but will soon descend into the boredom and anxiety of cabin fever.

So today I’m going to hit and run with a quick picture. I took this Sunday night, which happened to be St. Patrick’s Day. Boston loves them some St. Patrick.

Our football Graceland

The Short Kid’s home with me today. We didn’t get home last night until pretty late and I like the school staff too much to spring a tired, cranky kid on them. So I get to keep him.

Oops. Checking in a little late.

My husband’s convinced I’m actually a magnet for road-drama and every time I leave the house, his last words are always a very firm “drive safely”.

Like it’s my fault!

Pinning Kowalskis

For my fellow Pinterest addicts, I’ve started a board called Kowalski Stuff of Doom. It’s a work in progress, but I’m adding some visuals that either inspired me during the writing of the Kowalski series or that I think can help readers picture some things they might not be familiar with.

Of course, now I really want to ride my four-wheeler, but we’re heading into mud season. I hate mud season. *cries* At least I have Pinterest to play … Read More »
