I went out the door last week in the midst of that polar vortex and told myself I was so glad I didn't have any dairy animals. The cold was bitter. Dru had three days of school off. We hunkered down and enjoyed the comforts and diversions available to us. Once I was sure Goldie… Continue reading Polar Vortex
My dear man bought me an iPad a few weeks ago. At least, he said it was for me. But there are times I open it and find that he's been reading kindle books.

I'm even getting excited for school to start. My thrift store shopping was particularly successful last Saturday. I'm loving that… Continue reading Where Summer and Fall Converge
