My hubby and I decided to go mall walking at a prestigious mall because it was too cold outside. One thing struck us: There were barely any Christmas decorations compared to previous years. The only real display was at the center with a castle for Santa pictures. Sure, stores had their decorations up. Of course, they want to sell Christmas gi...

It’s been interesting since I came back from the Christian writers conference and retreat now that I am trying to get caught up. Nothing came to mind for my blog post this week. Ugh!

Our home is still under construction, finalizing g all the details for our final inspection. One of the people helping us finish the detai...

Coming home from our trip to London was rougher than I thought. The first couple of days I chalked up my fatigue and pain to jet lag. However, jet lag only lasts two or three days. Today I am in bed writing this blog post. The weather patterns at home are horrible! Today it is pouring down rain....
