Thanks, Annie

I had a writing afternoon today, the first in several weeks, the first of the new year. It was great to be back in it, and awful. I spent some time this evening looking for what Annie Dillard has to say about this kind of thing, and she says it so well: “I do not […]

Every, every minute

I love coming home from class. Usually my mind is brimming with new thoughts and ideas, and tonight was no exception. And I enjoy so much Dr. Clay’s teaching style.

For Bill’s 38th birthday, we went to breakfast at Guglhupf. It was delicious! Who needs anything other than pan au chocolat and a big cup of cafe au lait? Of course the boys had hot chocolate, and Emma Grace had milk. We were all very happy.

Stevenstine Evening
On January 13, 2005 | 4 Comments

January 11, 2005 We think we’ve begun a new tradition: the first Tuesday night in every month, the Stines and Stevensons will have dinner together. This was the first. Well, actually, it was the second. That is, the second Tuesday in the month. But we’ve agreed on it being the first Tuesday from now on. […]
