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

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

And we made it through another year! I can't tell you just how ready I am for the next two weeks off. For me and for my kids. For two weeks, I get to just be mom instead of mom and teacher. Not that it'll actually take much of a load off my shoulders, but … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #20

The Lily Cafe Digest #19

I probably say this every time, but I really am looking forward to my blogging break next week! In my last Digest, I mentioned my kids had completed 3 weeks of school and I complained a bit about the online program our (former) district offered. We've now completed 12 weeks of school. It feels like … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #19

The Lily Cafe Digest #18

Every time I post one of these Digests, I just feel a huge sigh of relief. I adore everything about blogging, but taking a break just feels so nice! After the past few weeks my family has had, I definitely need some time to retreat from the Internet and curl up to stare at walls. … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #18

That was...a fast two weeks. At the start of my break, I thought I'd do a Google search for my blog. It's not something I do often, but, sometimes, I like to see what shows up. Good news, my blog was the first one that popped up for me. Interesting news, an actual place called … Continue reading Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #5

And somehow it's just about the middle of the year, which also means it's time for my two week break to focus on family...and a whole bunch of dental appointments. I don't think my kids are thrilled at the pandemic seeming to be winding down in our area because it means they can't avoid dentists … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #17

Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #4

And I'm back! While I love taking a week-long break every so often (planned), I do both miss being around here and wish it were longer. But I have a lot to catch up on and a lot to post. This time, I don't have quite as much to share. Everything is, more or less, … Continue reading Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #4

The Lily Cafe Digest #16

Dear Readers, things are a bit bumpy for me and my family, at least until mid-June, but I'm trying my best to deal with it with as much grace and flexibility as I can. Last week, my son's school opened for hybrid learning. It's meant a shift in when he does his schooling. For now, … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #16
