Pumpkins with Personality

Carving a pumpkin was always part of our autumn celebration . . . . but it was getting kind of boring just doing the same old thing, year after year. There were a few years when we tried some different ways to fix up our pumpkins, but it was still the basic orange pumpkin carved …

A moment in time

This has been a difficult week around here. On Monday we learned that one of the students at our middle school passed away on Sunday night. He was a classmate of one of our daughters, and since we live in a rural, farming community it seems that everyone knows everyone else. Or at least knows …

Favorite (and not so favorite) Things: Painting and Allergies

We moved into our house last autumn, with just barely enough time to get everything inside the house and garage before the weather turned cold and rainy. There were some rooms that were fairly well organized right away – the kitchen and the bathrooms. Kinda. But then there were other rooms that we just shoved …
