About This Blog


Well hello!  Welcome to my blog, Afternoon of Sundries. A sundry is an unimportant item, generally of little value.  Our lives seem to be filled with those: moments, things that do not seem to matter at all.

That’s not true though, is it?  These little events, buying a new dress, taking the bus home instead of driving, skipping lunch: these things have a larger impact than we usually realize.  There really isn’t anything in this world of little consequence.

Though my blog seems to be one among a sundry of other blogs; I  hope together we can collect these little moments and watch the unimportant spark into the important.

Please, welcome, and stay awhile. I’d love to talk to you.

Things I discuss on AoS (Afternoon of Sundries) :

  • Fiction, Fantasy, and Facts (and my love of the Oxford Comma): These posts are mainly short stories (fictional or nonfictional)

  • Family: I write about my family or personal experiences

  • Faith: I am exploring the Word of God and the Gospel (and no, I don’t have any pamphlets, but I am happy to talk if you are interested)

  • Beauty: I had to learn about what self-worth is, and then self-care. I share my findings and beauty products I love.

  • Reflections: This can be about anything that causes me to reflect. (I welcome all thoughtful advice and suggestions!)

  • Teaching Experiences: I talk about problems or joys I face because I am an educator (Children are truly the oddest people)

  • Technology is my Friend: I grew up with only a TV and a Telephone. Everyone else had the internet.  Goodness, I love gadgets, apps, and technology! I love sharing my finds!

  • Thankful and Grateful: I share blessings and stories about wonderful people who have touched my life.

  • Uncategorized: What can I say? life can be so peculiar that it cannot be labeled and boxed away neatly.  These sorts of stories and posts end up here.
