It’s August now, almost September

By Myrna CG Mibus / August 29, 2016

It’s August now, almost September, and I have not written a blog post in four months. A lot has happened in this short period of time. My Dad passed away in July and while I am glad he is now at peace the weeks leading up to his death were some of the worst. There’s way more…

Books I love from 2015

Favorite Reads of 2015 – all set in England

By Myrna CG Mibus / December 18, 2015

A writing group I belong to, Write on Mamas, is compiling a list our favorite books from 2015. I just sent in my list and realized the three titles I sent in all have something in common – they are all set in England. I don’t believe I’m making a special effort to pick British books to read…

Z is for Zotz

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 22, 2015

Monday morning I set out on a quick road trip to Bemidji, Minnesota to deliver my daughter, Rose, and her friend, Chloe, to one of Concordia College’s language camps, Sup sogŭi Hosu. Sup sogŭi Hosu is the Korean Language Village that Rose attended for two weeks last summer. She had an absolute blast so is going…

W is for Wabasha

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 12, 2015

My family went on a mini vacation this past weekend. We were invited to a wedding at the lovely Villa Bellezza in Pepin, Wisconsin so decided we’d stay overnight in nearby Lake City, Minnesota instead of driving home after the wedding. Saturday was also my daughter’s 16th Birthday so part of our decision to make a weekend of things…

S is for Summer

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 7, 2015

It’s hard to believe it’s already July and we’re already well into summer! I like summer because I enjoy having the kids home and having a more relaxed schedule. The weather this summer has been glorious and the mosquitos haven’t been bad. As a result, we’ve spend a lot more time out on our deck than normal…

P is for Poznań, Poland

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 1, 2015

As I type this post, my older brother, Don, is on a plane headed for Poznań, Poland. I know about the country of Poland, of course, but hadn’t heard of Poznań before my brother told me he planned to spend a month near there. Have you heard of Poznań? Well, Poznań (according to Wikipedia) is the…

O is for Owatonna

By Myrna CG Mibus / June 30, 2015

Three years ago I had the fun of writing a story about Owatonna, a lovely town of about 25,000 located 35 miles south of my home. My story, Explore the Heart of Owatonna, was published in the Star Tribune’s travel section three years ago today – June 30, 2012. So, since today’s blogging challenge letter is…

N is for North

By Myrna CG Mibus / June 29, 2015

North is a direction on the compass, of course, but here in Minnesota it means something else, too. North means Up North, as in “we’re going up North this weekend.” Oftentimes “going up north” means the same thing as going to “the lake.” Funny thing is, “north” and “the lake” don’t mean any particular area, it…

Oliver!

By Myrna CG Mibus / March 10, 2015

I’ve been super busy lately helping out with a Northfield Arts Guild production of August: Osage County as well as getting my daughter, Rose, to and from rehearsals and performances of Northfield High School’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Revival XI. To top things off, I decided to audition for the upcoming NAG production of the musical Oliver! Well,…
