I don’t know what to do, so I just keep doing what I know…even when it’s not quite right

Every day there’s a new alert that takes hostage of my phone screen. Our county, our state – hitting a new COVID-19 high. And now today, worldwide records being broken, the U.S. topping the list. I don’t know what to do to help solve this problem. I wear my mask and keep my distance but … More I don’t know what to do, so I just keep doing what I know…even when it’s not quite right

Happy Hydrangea

Last week I bought my first hydrangea (Nikko Blue). This week I bought all new sheets and rearranged a bedroom just because of the amazing blooms. I’m doomed. Let the hydrangea addiction begin! I even hung one to experiment with drying them… There are worse addictions, right??? (Famous last words!)  Do you grow hydrangea? If so, … More Happy Hydrangea

She found them difficult to pass up … More the second question

The truth is though, it’s perfectly okay for us. We have … More just a tweak

Vacationing without vacationing seems to be our rallying cry this summer. Keeping things local, daytrips, and ‘cheap entertainment’. Like so many of you, COVID has left its mark on many. We continue to be grateful, however. For health and the health of our extended family as well. And, of course, for Tilly and all of … More Tilly’s First Tide

THE LOVE U GIVE

  I spent the day reading THE HATE U GIVE. I would like to say it’s eerily ironic that the storyline is so similar to what’s going on in our world today, but it’s not ironic, is it? It’s the same horrific story, repeated over and over again. This is a powerfully strong book that … More THE LOVE U GIVE
