Random thoughts on a Saturday morning:

1.  I’m starting on my handmade Christmas present journey.  I’m going all Laura Ingalls and getting the gifts finished before the first snowfall.  I decided I’m making this to wrap them with.

4.  And lastly,  you are rock stars.

Every last one of you.

It was the day that joy triumphed.Continue reading

Here’s to summer in the country.Continue reading
