Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Bummer! At least if you had the net you could bring up pictures of bonfires to warm your mind. Of course, we are here to do that. And warm you heart. You warm mine, that’s for sure.

  2. I used to come home to check online at my old job where I had a lunch break….at my current job we do have a computer but we’re not suppose to really use it. You can imagine how hard my double shift Sunday’s are…as soon as I get home Monday..even though I am exhasted, I just have to check my email and all that.

  3. Brian — by noon the weather took care of it.

    Jackie — pft

    Gawpo — wow. Thanks.

    Silver — it was great to get home tonight and find my email full of wonderful stuff.

    Kat — I totally agree, but we are forbidden by law to strike!

    Lori — I wish a few of our parents would complain on behalf of their children.

    Dr. John — and I scraped a quarter inch of frost off my windshield this morning. Go figure.

  4. Ahgh! AHGH!!! I caught you! I CAUGHT Quilly!!!!
    I caught you in a Language Usage Faux Pas! Yes I did!
    Then or Than???
    Is it warmer outside and THEN warmer in your classroom? *chin drops*
    Orrrrrrrrr…. is it warmer outside THAN IT IS in your classroom!

    Whooooo hoooo! I caught the teacher! I caught the teacher!!!

    (and no… we’re not discussing MY mistakes! I make TONS of them! But Quilly dear… you really ARE pretty careful… it’s hard to catch a Quilly Error!)

  5. Melli — Fixed — but you’ve got to follow my sister, Jackie, around. She is forever correcting my spelling. In fact, she did it on this very entry. My mistakes are common place. Honest.
