This has to have been the easiest #Sundaystills post to pull together EVER! My kids (and their spouses) and all the pets. Now technically the cows in the second picture are not pets in the usual sense but we get a lot of enjoyment out of watching them. The dogs have changed over the years and the kids have left home while the grandchildren change all the time. But what doesn’t change is how this is it.

The phone rang shortly before lunch, an odd enough occurence for sure. The caller though someone I often speak with. She calls me her second mom as I helped guide her through some formative times. Now a dozen years later we still keep in touch regularly. The call promoted a string of events.Continue reading “Whimsical Win”
Today we saw a silhouette of four; a cold four. Not a warm huggy four. Let me set the stage for this.Continue reading “A silhouette of four”
My eldest sent me a text yesterday asking what I would like for my birthday. Truth is that I can’t have what I want for my birthday.Continue reading “The Wishes”
Today’s the day when people rush to the stores for all those great sales. We thought outside that box with our event today.Continue reading “Boxing Day Fire Sale”
