Do Everything…

You can learn a lot from a two year old – about being brave, about trying. I’m not one who likes to try new things. I like the routine of life. Sure, a vacation here and there. But don’t talk to me about eating… Continue Reading “Do Everything…”

Soaked…

Rain, rain, rain – for weeks. The canvas canopy over an outdoor swing was sagging – I pushed up and – whoosh – over the edge cascaded water. It caught the attention of my one year old grandson, but I hadn’t noticed he had walked… Continue Reading “Soaked…”

Have It All…

It’s been a long, hot summer  – and not just here, and not just the weather. Here the usual relief of afternoon downpours often haven’t happened. Then there’s the flooding in Louisiana – and we count our blessing of not too much. There’s the… Continue Reading “Have It All…”

Peace Whispers…

Til the Violas Return

 Summer is early in Florida this year – yes we typically warm up in May, but we are talking the heat is here! That means humidity is on the way in quick order… People joke and say we only have two seasons: early summer and… Continue Reading “Til the Violas Return”
