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

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

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

The Lily Cafe Digest #15

Dear readers, I've spent the past couple of weeks debating what to write here. First, I wrote about how exhausted I am and probably whined a little too much. Then, I wrote about a few mundane things that have happened to me and my family. But neither made me happy. I was resigned to this … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #15

This is my last Digest of the year, and thank goodness this year is coming to an end though next year probably won't be too different, at least at first. Instead of picking a topic or two to ramble about, I want to take a moment to thank all of you for reading, enjoying, and … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #14

It's time for another week off from the blog! I always enjoy my blogging breaks, but I'm definitely going to enjoy this one even more. I'm exhausted and in desperate need of a break. Distance learning with a 6 year old is...well, distance learning with a 6 year old. The mornings are tough because I … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #13

Wow, the summer really flew by, didn't it? In my last Digest, I mentioned my son had graduated from Kindergarten in June. Now he's started First Grade. From home, because our school district is smart and decided for an online only start. But it leaves me with less time for my blog since school runs … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #12

Is it already time for another Digest? Yes, it is! This was a short 4 week round, but July has some big dates for my family, so I'll be taking the next 2 weeks off. The past four weeks just flew past. My son virtually graduated from Kindergarten, which was different, but still really nice. … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #11

The Lily Cafe Digest #10

Wow, an entire cycle of 6 weeks of posting done completely during the quarantine/isolation/stay at home thing because of COVID-19. It's been...something. Fun some days, not so fun other days. It all depends on whether or not the Kindergartener wants to do school from home that day and whether the toddler has sufficient activities to … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #10

The Lily Cafe Digest #9

Well, the past six weeks have been interesting. Let's see. As soon as I came back from my week-long blogging break at the end of February, my daughter and I were involved in an unexpected, unfortunate incident that completely knocked me down for about a week or so. And then the coronavirus spread to the … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #9
