Believe it or not, last week was a very busy one for me. You would think the week between Christmas and New Year’s would be quiet, but I was busy with my consulting project. The week just flew by! I was “stuck” inside because of my foot, so I was looking for things to do. […]

No Thanksgiving post would be complete without a picture of Thanksgiving chipmunks! 🙂 I am going to attempt to bake two pumpkin pies this year. The last time I attempted to bake pies, I managed to almost set the stove on fire. And this was with my dear mother supervising. I’m on my own this […]
