The Lily Cafe Digest #26

Just 3 short weeks after my last break I'm taking another. My kids' last day of school is today and they're off for the next 3 weeks. So I'll be taking at least the next 3 weeks off as well. What is there to write of from the last 3 weeks? Honestly, not much. My … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #26

Hi, and welcome back to the Cafe! Let's Catch Up a Bit Well, one week off from blogging was, honestly, not long enough. Mostly because I spent almost the entire time dealing with side effects from my COVID booster. On the plus side, the kids got to spend a lot more time playing with their … Continue reading Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #13

My goodness, when was my last blogging break? It's been quite a while (August, I think), so I have quite a long Digest today. Next week is Thanksgiving here in the States and my kids have the week off, so it's a good time for me to take a break. I'm also getting my COVID … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #25

Hi, and welcome back to the Cafe! Let's Catch Up a Bit After a badly needed "vacation" for the first time in 8 years, I think I'm ready to get this blog to what it was before the pandemic started.

The Lily Cafe Digest #24

Today is my daughter's Kindergarten orientation and Monday is the first day of school for both of my kids, so I figured that, even though my last break was just last month, I would take some much needed time for myself. No blogging and no kids for part of the day for 5 days. It … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #24

Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #11

Hi, and welcome back to the Cafe! Two weeks off seemed like both a lot of time and not enough, but I've got a bunch of changes coming up that I'm excited for. At least, I think it'll better help me manage everything going on at home right now and into August when my kids … Continue reading Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #11

The Lily Cafe Digest #23

Looking back, it's been almost 3 months since my last Digest and blogging break. No wonder I'm feeling so exhausted. Or maybe it's because my kids are out of school for the summer (10 weeks of summer break for the older one, 11 weeks for the younger one). We're keeping them busy with an enriched … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #23

The Lily Cafe Digest #22

I'm not sure what's happened over the past few weeks, but somehow the below things posted. Just looking at some of them has me scratching my head a little because I think I went through the last few weeks in a complete haze. A complete haze in which all I saw and dreamed about were … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #22

The Lily Cafe Digest #21

A couple of weeks ago, I was thinking of changing my blog theme for, um, the (pick a number)th time. Which doesn't really impact much anyways since I think at least half of my views are through the Reader, but, just in case someone is actually at the site, things would have looked different. But, … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #21
