Rest In Peace

OK – bear with me today because I’m in that kind of a mood. The mother of one of hubby’s childhood friends passed away last weekend and hubby and I are going to the visitation later this evening. This was actually more than “just the mom of a friend” to my hubby. This mom was […]

Suggestions for General Teen Acne?

Poor Sarah…she is at that age when her skin is not cooperating with her. We have traced several foods that do not seem to agree with her and give her predictable problems on her face…trouble is she loves these foods.

Have I mentioned my muscle-head son? No? I can’t believe I forgot to tell you about David’s turn to weights and body building. He’s turning into a pretty big kid, too.

Those Dreaded Age Spots

Treasures Under the Furniture

So…this week I’m doing my deleavening and moving furniture around. As I’m moving the furniture around, I continue to be amazed at the treasures I find.

Moving Right Along…

Did I happen to mention that I have recently found my sewing machine again and I am LOVING it? I forgot how therapeutic it is for me to sew. I just adore the construction and the process of creating with fabric…combining the colors and the textures into items we use.
I know…I should be […]
