Kathryn View All →

Hello all!

My name is Kathryn. I live in suburban Cleveland. I have 2 cats, who are my kids. I work in early childhood education, specializing in infants at a local childcare center. I’ve also worked with preschoolers and school aged kids there. I used to be an ESL teacher in South Korea.

I love to bake. My coworkers get to be my taste testers. I enjoy coloring, and I even participate in a coloring Meet Up group. I’m a fan of all kinds of music, but country is my favorite. I started taking a tap class at a local dance studio. Ginger Rogers, I’m not. But I’m holding my own after *mumble years* away from it.

My kitties, Gidgette and Ivory, are my favorite models for my photography. I play around with photo editors to create what I call “Works of Art”. I’m not very good at it, but I do it anyway.

Please visit me at Mighty Kool Kat. You can find my links to social media there.

So Proud

In the last few years, I’ve really started to enjoy working in the flower bed in front of my house. I’ve slowly been adding perennials each year to make things easier for me as I get older. There are still annuals in there, but they haven’t grown as big as in the past. Last year,…

The Golden Hour

It seems that I’ve taken quite a few pictures of sunsets. Yes, sunsets only. I’m rarely cognizant enough to take pictures of the sunrise. That’s something I should rectify at some point in time. Maybe I’ll do it when I’m on vacation. The Photos app on the iPhone does this thing where it creates slideshows…

Summer Bulletin Board

I recently finished the summer bulletin board in my classroom. As usual, the babies painted. My theme was summer. The saying I chose was “Summer Is Flip Flopping Fun”. I did things you’d find during summertime, including flip flops with the babies’ footprints on them. I found this neat foil cardstock at the craft store…

Parma Pierogi 5K

Another 5K in the books for me. On Saturday, I ran the Parma Pierogi 5K. If you recall, I was supposed to do it last year, but had knee trouble. I ended up doing the one mile walk. I was sorely tempted to do the mile this year because I was so tired. But I…

Clothes Shopping…

…In Cleveland in February. …in Cleveland in June. I was just at Walmart yesterday and the bathing suits are on clearance, just 4 days after the first day of summer. I’m surprised there weren’t any coats out. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture.

Ivory and Peonies

My grandma loved the peonies in her yard. My brother who lives in the house hates them. However, he hasn’t followed through with ripping out the last of them. And he won’t let me transplant them into the yard at my* house. As usual, they were in bloom on Memorial Day, so I cut some.…

Another 5K in the Books

Last weekend was the Cleveland Marathon and associated races. This was the second year I’ve participated in the 5K, and I think I’m going to make it an annual event. Last year I had four goals: Finish Not be the last one across the finish line Finish under an hour I accomplished all three. I…
