About Me
I've been a attender (FGC) for years and was recently moved to make the change to member. I am a university instructor and am writing my dissertation. Incidents beyond my control in 2009 - incidents like being laid off from a technician job - allowed me an invaluable opportunity to find my way back to the path. I am ever grateful for it.

Gosh I think I'm a Quitter! Looking for Clearness!

I am an adjunct university instructor for a number of institutions; Mount St. Mary's University, University of Phoenix online, University of Phoenix Harrisburg campus, and Frederick Community College. I had also, some time ago, applied to Kaplan University and have been accepted there. I am currently going through the training process with Kaplan. Online schools make faculty undergo rigorous training before they let you into the classroom (traditional schools kind of just turn you loose). I say… Continue

Is thee Plain?

She wore a long denim skirt (ankle), and a simple long-sleeved Henley type shirt. She also wore a white bun cover. I recognized her right away! I mean, I didn't know her of course, but you know what I mean.

"Is thee plain?" I asked in my excitement. I hope I wasn't too pushy in… Continue

Bought a cap and apron...

I went to Katie's Mercantile http://www.katiesmercantile.com/index.html

(thanks, http://quakerjane.com/) looking for a strong apron. Now that I

take the care of my hearth seriously I felt led to dress for it. Like I

said in earlier posts, I wake up, make my bed, wash my face, and dress

for the day from the skin out. Right now house/hearth keeping demands

more respect than a… Continue

Slowing down is driving me crazy! But in a good way.

My house is a mess. I've been a slob for all of my life save these past few weeks when the mess has been distressing me to no end. Why the change in perspective? I think it's as I said; as my mind finds order my spaces must also follow suit. My sister-friend couldn't come today to help me clean, but conversations with her, and with you all, have inspired me to industry in a way that I barely recognize.



I've started in the kitchen. How did I live with this all this time? I ask myself… Continue
