Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

Chinese New Year

Did you know that today is Chinese New Year? It is the Year of the Pig. I was born in the Year of the Ox. Though I take absolutely no stock in any of the Chinese zodiac stuff, I am a fan of Chinese food. That is why I am on my way out the door to eat some of the delectable fare. Yes, that means I will be spending more money on restaurant food but, hey, it is a holiday, right? Forgive me.
