You may have noticed I haven’t been posting much. Life is very busy right now! I’ve spent a great deal of time outside working on the new trail to the Back Five, clearing flower beds, planting trees, repairing gutters, and pressure washing just about everything that doesn’t move.

A Glimpse Into My Brain

No, I’m not always serious. And I’m not always completely….hum…sane? Here is a glimpse into my brain according to my Facebook feed the past few weeks:  It is Monday. And a sweet friend met me there for lunch. We talked for four hours. 😳 Almost a year ago I posted about being sure you have…
