April Currently - 2015

It's been awhile since I wrote a blog post.  It's been crazy busy around here.   Kidding season on the farm began with a bang, and not the good kind.  Like many goat farmers across the country, we have had to deal with the unpleasantness of problems with the deliveries.  The up and down weather, along with forces we cannot control or see - we had a really rough time of it with loss as well as life.

Along with the responsibilities of caring for a lot of animals - I also have had a full work load with Blog designs, and writing assignments.  I have some of the best clients ever!   I love them for having faith in my work, as well as being understanding when I had to deliver babies at a wonky time.

LISTENING: I am currently listening to the rumble of thunder and the sound of raindrops on the roof.  Though the sun is peeking through and it looks like it might burn off and be warm.  It's already 70 something.

LOVING: I am loving a few quiet moments to myself before I head out with my Mom to celebrate my Aunt's 80th birthday. Bring on the margaritas and cute waiters!

THINKING:  My brain has been going on overdrive for a few months so it's hard to narrow it down to just one thought.  Though I am thinking about the winding down of some of the projects I have on my to do list. I am looking forward to finishing all of these things so I can move on to the next big thing. :)

WANTING:  To finish my list of things - and chocolate. :)

NEEDING:  Chocolate. :)   

EGGS-PLAIN YOUR NAME:   I initially had a name that locked me in to one age group.  Which meant that most of my followers and customers didn't realize I could or did create other things.  In 2010 I sold my very large website - and created Crayon Box Learning.  I love Crayons - they make me happy. And the name has some symbolism of being colorful, cheerful, diverse, etc.... and learning added onto the crayon box made me think of a broad spectrum of learning resources without limitation.

Thank you so much for stopping by!   I hope that you have a happy day!

A special thanks to Farley for this pretty cool link up:


  1. Love your name CrayonBox! So colorful and fun. Also, chocolate is the best.

    Hope you can knock some things off your list.

  2. I love your work and your name. It always makes me smile :)
    Enjoy those margaritas and some chocolate!


  3. Love all that your name symbolizes! Just perfect! I agree, one can never have enough chocolate. I keep some super dark chocolate in my kitchen and classroom at all times. The kiddos, at home or school, don't like dark so I never have to worry about it missing. Sounds crazy busy with everything you have going on, wow! Enjoy your few moments of silence and the rest of your weekend!
