Framed Flowers

I was walking across the yard yesterday, and all I could hear was, “Crunch, crunch, crunch…”  Mercy.  Was it only a month ago we were saying we needed a little break in the rain?  I’m not going to tell God … Continue reading

Tangerine Flowers

Today is errand day.  I’m running errands with “the man,” so that always doubles up the errand list.  Then I need to vacuum the pool, unless one of the boys gets home first and does it.  There are a few … Continue reading
