The Lily Cafe at home: Audiobooks, Crocheting, Chinese Food, and…Video Games?

Welcome into my home! I know I said last week I would be working on getting some reviews and my Impressions post up this past week, but, well, best laid plans and all, I suppose. I've been dragging my feet on those reviews, so I think today I ought to focus on them. At least … Continue reading The Lily Cafe at home: Audiobooks, Crocheting, Chinese Food, and…Video Games?

Why Hello There, Old Blog

It's been a few weeks since I last posted. After three weeks off with my family, I thought I'd be ready to get back into blogging and devote myself to yet another year of this, of writing and posting, planning and scheduling. Even though I decided at the end of last year that I wanted … Continue reading Why Hello There, Old Blog

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. Though, of course, I also plan on spending some of those school hours cleaning, running … Continue reading Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #12

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

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

And it's summer here in Southern California! Wait, I take that back. We're back to spring. After temperatures got seriously close to 100 degrees late last week, it's nice to finally plunge 20+ degrees. Though spring is a fun time for us as the song birds and pigeons make their return to torment my cat. … Continue reading Upcoming at The Lily Cafe #10
