Between grandbabies, unstable weather, new internet being installed (fiber, yay!), a new computer, and repairs beginning on our house for damage from a major storm in April 2023 (yes, it’s taken that long to get our insurance to approve).

    Bunny Abode

    It’s been hard to wrap our heads around what our world is going through right now. It is a challenge to not let anxiety take over. We are lucky that Larry is able to work from home. College classes for…

    Nature’s Beauty

    Getting outside and enjoying the beauty of nature is a great antidote for stress and overwhelm. This morning I decided it was time to enjoy some of the beauty here at home to offset all of the negative news about…
