Day to day life as a retiree, dedicated runner, avid gardener, reader, and a fearless cook.

I worked hard to get these drips of melting snow as they sparkled and changed colors in the sun. I did a lot of zooming and a bit of cropping so it may look too grainy in this photo. But trust me, it was a pretty sight.
My blog's title originated in July 2004 as I was preparing to send my then 16 year old daughter to Annecy, France as an exchange student. It was to be a 10 and 1/2 month separation that I was sure I could not endure. BUT, thanks to the internet and blogging I survived her adventures outside of our 'nest'. Once she returned, I thought of changing the title but realized that 10 and 1/2 Months was a fitting description of the cycle of my teaching life too. Now that I am retired the days and months have much less structure but the title remains out of nostalgia for my teaching days.
