Today Is Brought To Me By

Today is brought to me by: The men and women of the labor force, who work hard to make a living and support their families (today is Labor Day, a holiday in the United States).

Morning Musings (December)

The other morning, I came downstairs and let da’ boyz out in the yard, only to find a hard frost.  The deck was slick, not that it stopped three dogs from slipping and sliding their way out the door in their eagerness to bark at little boys walking to get the school bus. It was…

Saturday Errands

My sweetie and I woke up Saturday to a gray and dreary day.  Although it was icy on the trees, the deck and the windshield, the roads were warm enough to be safe. After breakfast at Cracker Barrel (my favorite place for breakfast!), we decided to do some errands.    My sweetie has been doing most of our…
