How long will this thing last??? No one knows, but I am mentally and physically preparing for the long haul. Here’s what’s new at our house this week. 1. Quarantine. No, not us. Thankfully Mr. Ken and I are well. Our dryer broke last week, of all weeks for this to happen. It was easy […]

We all know what is on everyone’s minds these days. Such interesting, yet sad times. I opened the paper last week and this was the headline: And the insert inside the paper was even better: Mmmm, so much for trying not to panic. This picture says it all though: Stay calm, stay well and wash […]
