The Beauty of a Network of Friends

I wrote some of my scary experience with my Skateboard Guy last week. If you read that first, this post will make more sense.

Thursday’s (or Friday’s) Walk in the Word

Whoa! Yesterday was such a busy writing day for me I didn’t get the Walk in the Word Up.  Sorry!  I knew it was Thursday, at least most of the day ;) I will admit I am so focused on the fact that it is going to be 70 degrees here today that I have been a bit distracted.

The Promise of Spring

I have spoken before of my frugal journey to not using my dryer, but today is a huge milestone.  Although hanging everything inside over the winter was a new experience this year, I have been hanging things to dry outside during warmer weather for as long as I have been married.  Maybe because my … [Read more...]
