Farewell April…….

I can hardly believe how fast this last month has gone by.  This has been such a cold Spring. We finally had three fantastic days in the high 80’s but then we dropped back down into the 60’s. I really need to get outside. I am perpetually behind. Then I sit and think about all […]

Goals

February’s Goal Met

I remember when I was little…I wanted time to go by faster. I was one of those kids who loved school and couldn’t wait for school to start. I know there were so many times when I would ask my mom when was summer over. Don’t get me wrong, I was a water baby and […]
