Welcome to Bright Tuesday!

I started this blog to share my thoughts about my life, my hobbies, my perspectives on God and His love for us, and whatever else comes to mind.  I love to write and hope that you’ll always find something engaging to read and think about when you visit here.

I have been happily married for 18 years to my husband Brian.  I’m the proud mother of three children, ages 11, 16, and 25.  I taught elementary school for 9 years, and I worked as a case manager for at-risk families for 6 years after that.  I am currently busy as a stay-at-home wife and mother.  My husband became an ordained minister in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) in 2012, and so I have been adjusting to the ins and outs of my new role as a “pastor’s wife” since then.

I enjoy all things crafty, but my favorite hobby  is crocheting.  Much of my time is spent writing and reading, and daydreaming.  I consume copious amounts of coffee daily, and can almost always find a reason to laugh.

  1. Hi! Sooooooo now that I am about to post this on your About page, I see you have already won it…so no pressure to repeat the “accepting” process…but…I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award! Thank you for inspiring me in a positive and creative way. 🙂 If you want to pass this along again, see my blog for more information.

    Which reminds me: thank you for the follow! 🙂

    Happy blogging! 😀


    1. Sorry to have taken so long to reply! Thanks for the nomination — I plan to write a post soon about this award. Thanks for your kind words. I definitely appreciate the encouragement. 🙂 I’ve enjoyed reading your blog as well, and am always on the lookout for your posts.


    1. Thanks a lot! I have done the Liebster award before (twice, actually), so I won’t be taking part again. I will give you a shout out on my blog soon, though — I have really enjoyed your short stories!


  2. Hello newest Spikey! I know, a bit corny, eh, but that’s the term that has come to stick for those folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it, thrown in for good measure.

    My promise to you is not to be overbearing, just a couple of posts a day, maybe 3 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…
