About Kim

I've returned to blogging after a long hiatus. Seasons change, as do seasons of life. I'm now retired, still married to The Mister. Mom, grandma, great grandma are some of the hats I wear in addition to wife. Lover of books, swimming, chocolate, and sarcasm (but not simultaneously - the books will get wet and chocolatey). I dabble in crochet and writing (fiction, non-fiction, and poetry). I may occasionally write about crochet. I will most definitely write about family, and how being a grandma is the best gig in town. My original blog, The Ratio of Failures, has been retired. This is my second (and final act). Let's raise the curtain and start the show! I hope you'll join me, and leave comments so I don't have to talk only to myself. Join me in Flirting with Normal!

Coming Soon!

Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers. Isaac Asimov I have had a dearth of that type of thinking lately, and my fingers turned twitchy in anticipation. I hope you’ll join me as I create/discover/rehash/whine/bitch/crow and brain dump … Continue reading
