I feel so sorry for all those in Houston and surrounding area that have been devastated by the flood waters of Hurricane Harvey. It will be years before all the destruction will be cleaned up and rebuilt. I pray for those people who do not have flood insurance and even if they do – there […]

Sometimes – doing something you don’t want to do – is a blessing! Back a year or so ago, as my sister was recovering from breast cancer and a near-fatal car accident, I was out at her house helping out. They had to buy a new vacuum because the old one had bit the dust […]

I hope you are having a good week! Kids are back in school and all is right with the world – well – OK – that was a bit overstated. Anyway, in the little corner of where kids should be this time of year – all is right with that world. I hope your child […]

School has begun for the 2017-2018 school year! I hope your younger kids are happy with their teachers – although the Kindergarten children don’t start until Wednesday.

We’re on the countdown to the start of school – Aug. 14th. Teachers will go back on Aug. 7th. Wow – the summer has passed very quickly for me – but it always does. I know it has for the teachers. I know I said I was going to get my picture (above) redone but I […]

I hope you’re having a great summer! It won’t be long until school starts – Aug. 14th (7th for teachers). My niece, Hannah Musto, is going to have her first Kindergarten class! She has taught 3rd graders for the past 3-4 years (I lose track). She is so excited about having these little ones in […]

I hope you are having a great summer! The heat is on this week and it really feels like July. I am having cataract surgery this week on one of my eyes. The other will be done in a few weeks. I am looking forward to being able to see better. I am still amazed […]

I was so disappointed that our city’s 4th of July celebration had to be cancelled but I totally understand and agree. There was so much rain that it flooded the field where most people would have had to park and also all the rain and lightning made it impossible for the entertainment to use their […]
