Two days away – Valentine’s Day is two days away, and there hasn’t been much time to decorate for the season around our home.  Perhaps a couple of touches of love will brighten our abode.  What I put together is super, super easy. A year or two ago I bought these darling beaded hearts.  The […]

Hello Home

Posted on: Feb 8, 2015        In: Life and Love        With: 5 comments
While in rehab, I started thinking about the classic children’s book Goodnight Moon by Helen Wise Brown.  In this charming story with striking illustrations by Clement Hurd a little bunny goes through the ritual of saying goodnight to objects in his room. As I thought about this story, I began thinking about saying “Hello” to my home.  My story does […]

The flowers on the desk in Room 106 came to be known as “My Garden”.  I thought about calling it “My Secret Garden”, but it wasn’t a secret because the flowers were in plain sight for everyone to see and enjoy. What a bright and cherry corner these flowers created.  Come visit “My Garden” The light pink […]

On Wednesday, Lanabird suffered a fall resulting in a broken hip. This morning (Friday) doctors performed surgery to mend her injured leg. Everything went well and Lanabird is resting comfortably. Blog posts will resume as soon as she is feeling up to it. Thank you.

It is basketball season for Hot Rod again.  We have attended his first game of the season. First Baptist Church Richardson partners with the YMCA to offer basketball for these kids. Hustle! Run! Block!  As in years past, his strong suit is  defense. Yea!  He cheers when they score.  In some ways, he is a […]
