"God made rainy days so gardeners could get the housework done." ~ Anonymous I'm not so sure about that as it seems as though every time it rains or there is a bit of wind, another section of my privacy fence falls over. I finally purchased the hex nut bit I needed for my impact… Continue reading Bits and Pieces
It seems like I was just headed to Missouri to get my kids for a summer visit after four long months without them (not counting the 4-5 hours I got to spend with them every third weekend).

The two small burners worked, the larger ones did not. The oven worked, but whatever had been burned in it years… Continue reading Chicken Alfredo
“One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren't enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get… Continue reading Three Days
