It’s the 13th of January and along with being my brother Bob’s birthday (Happy Birthday, Brother Bob!), it’s the 12th day of having Jeanne living with me in our house.  WOW! What a whirlwind! Since the 2nd of January, we (most of it Jeanne) have done the following things in and around my house: Landscaper […]

Another dimension…

On January 7, 2015 By

So, it was a few days before Christmas and I was at my little haircut place, talking to my hair stylist.  I’ve been going to the same place for years, and my stylist (another Linda) is wonderful and her haircuts are quite inexpensive!

So, Mary Wise (Bozoette), had her first Sunday Stealing, and this is my first stealing from hers!  Some of these questions are TOUGH!

Before I get to the info to support the title of this blog, I want to comment on my Christmas Letter post. Seems I can’t even remember my own advice! When I tried to tackle the paperwork that took me down Nostalgia Lane, I completely forgot about how wise I was a few blogs back […]

Holidailie: The Christmas Letter

On December 26, 2014 By

Once upon a time, year after year, I wrote Christmas letters. My friends and family loved them; husbands of girlfriends wanted to read them; and I enjoyed writing them. Then I stopped. Not sure why. But it’s been several years since I’ve written one. I actually have one I wrote last Christmas in an effort to get […]
