I’ve gotten in the habit of carrying my digital camera with me everywhere…never know when you might want to take a picture! I grabbed it the other night to take when I rode in the golf cart with Don and afterwards we were going to a farm to check a job. [...]

Just some random things for now!
1. I’ve made pretty good progress on cleaning up my email. I think I had gotten my inbox down to about 50 something yesterday! I’ll probably accumulate a few more than that until I have time to purge again but hopefully this has gotten [...]

The Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg was on my spring reading thing list and I finished it up over the weekend. I read it a bit slowly I think because parts of it seemed so sad to me and made me teary. Betta Nolan and her [...]

Last week I got a bit off with meals because hubby was out of town, no point making a big casserole just for me! I sorta like it when it’s less cooking though, maybe that’s not a bad thing.
