What We Did in CLE: North Coast Harbor Ice Fest

What We Did in CLE: North Coast Harbor Ice Fest

I am not a fan of the cold. Winter in Northeast Ohio isn't as bad as other places. And, my little suburb is by far the best place to live if you aren't a fan of snow.

You can keep your white Christmas. And, skiing is great for other people. But, when it comes to outdoor festivals! I will bundle the gang up in every stitch of thermal underwear and make them go outside!

North Coast Harbor's Ice Fest on MLK Day 



Despite the pleas and desperate cries of not wanting to leave the warm cocoon of our home, we headed downtown to North Coast Harbor.

35 ice sculptures were on display throughout the grounds of the Great Lakes Science Center, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the harbor leading to Nuevo Cleveland where hot chocolate and crafts waited. We also participated in the scavenger hunt. Last year we got hats, this year scarves, maybe next year they'll give away gloves!

5 Podcasts That Could be Your New Favorite

5 podcasts I'm listening to right now and you should to


My working days look like this, drive kids to school, drive to work, work, drive home, family stuff, write, sleep. While listening to music does play a part in my day, podcasts have taken over.

While I make lunches, I listed to Alexa's Flash Briefing, in the car - anything that makes me cry, and at work mostly news but also indulgent podcasts.

My indulgent podcasts include Doctor Who recaps and discussions as well as the Good Place and The Wiccan Read-Along. Listens that have a narrow-ish fan base. The podcasts that I am sharing not so specific - sort of. And, they are all presented by women! I didn't plan that but since we are heading into Women's March weekend, bonus!

What We Did Last Week: Fitness, Christmas, and Girl Scouts

What We Did Last Week: Fitness, Christmas, and Cookies

Last week does not feel like it was just last week for me!


We celebrated Orthodox Christmas, I hit the gym with enthusiasm, and my Girl Scout started selling cookies, again.

It was a week of Girl Scout activities, too!

Selling cookies was a blip compared to the cookie rally, troop meeting, and a trip to the aquarium!
