Right Here Waiting For Food

My husband and I were inspired to write a song parody about our dogs and their love affair for food.  From the moment I wake up they are following me around, waiting for their next meal.  I think if you have a fur baby, you can relate 😉 Hope you enjoy! “Right Here Waiting For […]

expectations

in my head  I plan ahead  and hope that  all works out  until the dread  when those best laid plans just don’t  pan out  It’s no secret that I get excited easily- and it doesn’t take much!   But I am finding that being excited takes a great deal of energy.  And if whatever I’m excited […]

The After-Christmas

Maybe I’ll keep on Christmas-ing do you think anyone would know?

Peace on earth…and goodwill at Goodwill

The thrift store and I go back a long ways. I began going to thrift stores when I was 16.  I love the interesting people I meet shopping there, and all the treasures I find are just an added bonus! This past year, I had gotten several bags of clothes ready to donate to the […]

Siblin’s Day- our made-up holiday…and a song about it

Two are better than one- Ephesians 4:9 I love my sister. There is no person on earth that knows me like she does.  All we have to do is look at each other- and we crack up. We know what each other is thinking before we even utter a word. It’s like we can read […]
