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.

I Have a Car!

At the end of January, the clutch on my lovely Subaru Outback began to emit a distinctly incorrect aroma, most especially when I drove the car in reverse and even more so when I drove the car in reverse up a hill. When I informed my husband of this problem, his response was adamant, “Don’t drive the car!” It is now seven months (plus) later and my car is finally fixed! My husband test-drove it last night and, apparently, all is well. I will be hopping into the beauty in a few minutes to go (where else?) out for breakfast to celebrate! Yippee! My car is fixed! My car is fixed! My car is fixed! Hurrah!
