Carrying our Mistakes

Last week we got some much needed rain. The garden was so dry! The problem is, we got just enough to make the weeds start growing too! Pesky weeds. Still a little too damp for the tractor, I headed out with mismatched rain boots and a hoe in hand. Some of those weeds grow really close to the base of […]

It was a gorgeous day outside today here in the Carolinas.  With temperatures in the 80’s (in March- crazy!!) it was a great day to play in the back yard.  My daughter is now 21 months old and loves to swing, slide, ride her car, chase the dog and play with bubbles.  We played with bubbles for almost an hour this […]

Sometimes I just CAN’T

There are days, where I get so bogged down that I just CAN’T. I just can’t take another sleepless night, I can’t take another missed nap time, I can’t make another dinner or wash another dirty dish. I can’t do another load of laundry or send another email. I can’t think about another day at work  or another missed day at […]
