Gathering Resources Before 9/11 It's nearly the anniversary of the horrible assault on freedom that we know as 9/11. Take a moment right now to gather some resources so you'll be ready to talk with your children about these things on Thursday.


The Best Things Happen in the Margins {The Wider, the Better} This might be one of my favorite columns. I'm very much taking it to heart this semester. It's all about #smallstepsinwidemargins

We're all about REAL: Pumpkin Spice Latte You've heard about the "no-pumpkin PSL" at Allthebucks? Well, this one is the real deal. Several different versions, hot and cold, and one that is a genuine whole foods kind of meal. 

Paths Unexpected I'm a solitary walker. And now, I'm learning to be a solitary runner. Maybe one day, I'll run alongside someone, but for now, I really like being alone with my thoughts. In this post, I share some of those thoughts and I share lots of pictures of the beautiful places I have been blessed to walk and run over the 243 miles I logged in August. Click on the video. My heart's in it. 


Lots of Reading and Just a Little Sewing In this post, I share about Anna Quindlen, Anne Lamott and Annie Dillard. Just a little love for writers named Ann... And I share with you how I've started reading fiction again after twenty years of being without it.

Daybook. Mary Beth is going to contribute on a regular basis! This is her first Daybook. Stop by the combox and say hello. She'll be so encouraged.

Roasted Tomato Sauce Lots of late summer tomatoes and very little time? Here's what to do!

Could it be a Storybook Year? Here's one from the archives--a way to bring light and love and laughter into your reading with children. And a lengthy list of ideas for talking and writing about books after you've read them together.

There are No Do-Overs There was a tragic accident in my neighborhood around 11:00 on a sunny Thursday morning. An extremely high-speed collision on a residential street. Makes you think. 

i've really missed you. The move was maddening and the problems with feed readers super frustrating. But everything should work now. you might need to check on a few things.

First, if you usually click over here from Facebook, go like this page. My personal Facebook page is going to become more personal, more private, and quieter. As we move in here, there will be more frequent blog updates and I don’t want you to miss them, but they won’t all appear on my personal Facebook page. The blog page is going to get hopping. So, go like and follow the blog page!

You might need to update your subscription. If you saw this post in your reader this morning, you're just fine. If you've been a reader for a long time and subscribed to ebeth.typepad.com you'll need to re-subscribe. We put a handy link in the top bar if you'd like to have posts appear in your mailbox every day. Or you can subscribe on Feedly or Bloglovin’ or another feed reader. Go check yours! You might be subscribed under the old RSS and you won’t get updates.

You can still access learning ideas and lesson plans at Serendipity. We are working on a plan to move all of those over here very soon. 

Have I mentioned how glad I am that you're here?
