Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Badger Pasta


I've introduced you to my friend Janell several times on this blog. She is a fellow Wisconsinite who now makes her "burrow" in Indiana, just like I do. I am also privileged to have her sons as students.

From time to time, Janell shows up in my classroom bearing gifts. She brought me this warm fleece throw just after Christmas. Once she brought me Christmas card samples which ALL had Badgers on them.

When she sees something that screams "Wisconsin" - - - she thinks of me. She is just a GEM like that.

Well, yesterday she walked into my class room bearing these - - -

Two bags of "Badger Pasta." Seems her mom, who still lives in Wisconsin, ALSO thought of me (and I've never even MET her mom!) when a student came door-to-door selling these for a trip fundraiser.

Janell's mom came for a visit, brought the pasta, and Janell brought it to me!

I'm so excited about all the pasta salad I will make this summer with these adorable white and red University of Wisconsin "W's."

I don't even think I'll share.

Thank you, Janell!!! Thank you Janell's mom!!! One day I want to MEET you.

She sounds like a wonderful person.
How sweet of her to bring you the pasta. It will look great in a summer salad. People can be so kind.
Happy Mother's Day
