For most of us, we’ve settled into 2017. Maybe we’re so ‘settled’ that the ubiquitous goals to lose weight or organize our homes have already gone by the wayside. And that’s ok. Yes, it’s wonderful to have an organized home. But having an alphabetized spice rack isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s great to have goals to get the little things done that make
I belong to a FB group whose focus is the photo editing software called Lightroom. Whenever I log into FB, my feed is inundated with postings from this group. Mostly it’s photographers showing their work and the photos are more often than not beautiful, so I don’t mind this new phenomenon at all. It gives me something to work toward actually. But it did get
The title of this post is a bit deceiving. You see, *I* didn’t redesign my blog, a graphic designer did. (I would no sooner mess with the back end of my blog than volunteer for colonoscopy research.)

It’s finally here. Whew! My new site. New look, and more importantly, new name. Some of you may recall I mentioned a few changes would be coming soon in early January.

I’m thinking most of you are busy cooking and cleaning and hustling about and don’t have time to read blogs, but I wanted to update you on my week and of course, wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Sarissa and Josh are here in the states until Saturday. They arrived last Tuesday and are
I had the very, VERY distinct pleasure of meeting two of my favorite bloggers yesterday! The always funny, smart and oh-so-good cook, Amy from Ms.ToodyGooShoes and the sweet and uber talented Cindy from the lovely blog, Cloches and Lavender. But wait, that’s three people including moi, so who’s the other young lady you might ask? That’s Audrey, Cindy’s bff and hopefully soon-to-be blogger. It was such
Sunset has always been my favorite time of day, and it is by far the best time to be on the lake. Most of the community residents are at home at that time, busily cooking dinner, helping their children with homework, or themselves returning home from work. They are too busy to think about taking a quick trip around the lake with their kayak, canoe
