Spring 2015 at the Flower Memorial Library

Today I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of this poster while returning some books to the Flower Memorial Library: Because it’s winter, and because it’s THIS winter, and because my kids aren’t much for sports, we’ve struggled with finding interactive things to keep them socially engaged outside of school and playdates. They’ve enteredContinue Reading

Book clubbers, be sure Big Little Lies is on your list of upcoming reads. Last week I borrowed this tremendously readable, deeply engrossing novel on my Kindle from the Flower Memorial Library.

Snowtown Kick-Off!

Snowtown Kick-Off!

I don’t believe you can call any Watertown winter NORMAL, but THIS “winter” is starting off a leaning more toward weird than is typical. Take, for example, the fact a pre-Thanksgiving lake effect snow storm has already kept kids in the greater Watertown-area home for 2-3 precious snow days this 2014-2015 school year.

I was 20). Unfortunately, it was during a lake effect snow storm in northernContinue Reading
