Sharing is Caring

What you're about to read is a direct copy of the Counios and Gane newsletter. David said I shouldn't copy and paste it because we don't want to have the same content for both our Counios and Gane newsletters and my blog. However, I don't think we have the same audience...and I like the idea... Continue Reading →

David and I

One of my daily tasks is to promote Counios and Gane on social media. I also have a smartphone that does things like gather up pictures that fit into a category. The phone shows me the photos in what feels like a "look what I did Ma" moment. This morning I saw a nice little... Continue Reading →

Buying Books, Giving Books

My cousin sent me a text with a photo of children's books. She captioned the image with you gave me all of these books as gifts over the years. I don't remember getting her any of them but I'm glad I did. It spurred some thoughts. Gifts Gift-giving is not my top love language, however,... Continue Reading →

At Least My Mom Will Read It

I was at a conference where Lisa Baylis talk about self-compassion for educators in a time of burnout. In a brief critique, I want to tell you that she's great. Check out her website. Find her on Insight Timer. If you get lucky enough, see her in person. She's a great educator. I walked away... Continue Reading →

I'll add to that---keeping my home and my social life neat and tidy and a little busy. I was so proud of writing... Continue Reading →

Happy Anniversary to Counios and Gane

It happened again!! I missed our anniversary. I'm a terrible partner. Dave missed it too. I guess we are very preoccupied with writing and life. Although receiving an award from the Moonbeam Awards was a great way to unofficially celebrate. It's been a month since the day David and I picked years ago as the... Continue Reading →

It’s Summer Time

It's summertime! As a teacher, my life runs on cycles. Fall---start of school. Winter break. Semester change. Spring break. SUMMER! I look forward to each stage as they all move me forward. And well, truth be told, I don't know anything different as I've been in the cycle of education since I was five, which... Continue Reading →

Shepherd’s Call is Out

This Angie Counios blog is a meandering of thoughts. Sometimes there is a destination and sometimes there isn't. Sometimes I talk about the food I ate yesterday and sometimes I talk about my author life---that life I'm trying to nurture and grow with all the love and effort of an attentive parent. And like a...
