Making Memories

I have found myself in the process of doing something and realize, hey! I’m making a memory. Then it hit me, everyday there is an opportunity to make a memory. Yesterday was overcast and cool, my favorite kind of day, so I took my coffee and my yarn and went out to my favorite little…

Who says Halloween has to be all orange and black?

I love Halloween and it is approaching quickly. I see it everywhere the pumpkins are appearing on the lawns of nearby farmers, the bats are hanging from the ceilings of little shops in town, even Zoey my daughter’s chihuahua is getting ready trying on costumes, should she be a fairy or a witch or a…
