Last week, we had a bright and sunny day that was perfect for shooting this beautiful Christmas Cactus flower against the bright blue sky! And, as a bonafide “Scottie-obsessed” fan, how could I not include this bright red Boyd’s Glass Scottie?
Since I have so much time on my hands lately…Actually, since I have been coughing and miserable, I decided to rethink my Scottie crochet. The other piece that I showed previously will be framed and not used as a curtain. However, I looked through my patterns and found another “vintage” pattern my Scottie friend, Kim, [...]
My friend, Sorlil, tagged me! I have never done one of these before, but this looked rather interesting… Here are the rules: 1. Link to the person’s blog who tagged you. 2.

With two “teen” kids (technically Ben has not *quite* reached the teen years yet) in the house, we are busier than ever!

I had written on my blog at about 1:30 in the afternoon on Thursday that I had become rather efficient [...]
I usually like to take a nice walk on Thanksgiving Day, but feeling a little miserable, I decided to just stay close to the house. We had a light dusting of snow, and it made everthing seem to sparkle with a new lustre! Even frozen grasses in the ditch looked like a pretty new still [...]
Yes, today is the busiest shopping day of the year here in the good ole US! We bought a newspaper yesterday morning, even though Mark had been logging on each day for the past couple of weeks to check out the Black Friday ads. So…this morning, at 4 am sharp, the alarm clocks went off, [...]
