The ramblings of a mother of 3, substitute teacher, wife, chef/short-order cook, taxi driver, and finder of all things lost.

Here is a regular visitor to my yard this fall. Along with an entire hive of bees who seem to love my agastache. But that's ok, they are actually entertaining to watch, especially when a hummingbird shows up. I had no idea they were mortal enemies!
I am a stay at home mother for the most part. Several days a month during the school year I work as a substitute teacher at the parochial school my youngest daughter attends. Hubby is a work-a-holic who works 35 miles away from our house at the family farm. A few times a year he puts in really long days and I feel like a single parent. I am pretty opinionated and can be a bit hostile if the mood strikes me. Hubby says I love to argue just for the sake of arguing. The kids say I am "way overprotective" and need to "let them go." I don't agree with any of them. I love summer heat and I hate the winter chill; yes, I wonder why I live here, too.
