I have always wanted to see the country. To travel and meet lots of people. To start a little fresh, see if I can make friends wherever I go…. To see what the similarities and differences are…. But … Continue reading Moving…. again
I love the rain. Rain in the day is my favorite. The kind of rain that falls softly, and pitter patters on the concrete. Soft rain that makes the day gray but lovely because it is spring and all glistens greens. One of my favorite rain days is September 02, eleven and half years ago.

But I pray that I never talk to my children in a manner that makes them or … Continue reading Guess what….. I LIKE my children
CAMPING! We went camping this past weekend! Well, I did with our two youngest girls. Rebecca is a Junior Girl Scout and Miklayla is a Brownie, I am a leader and have been for twelve years now. I love Girl Scouts. I love the girls and the fun that we have. I haven’t always loved the Councils that I have worked with, but I understand some of their decisions and choices. But this isn’t a political blog so enough of that. We went camping this weekend! And we had “s’more fun” than we should have been able to handle. Hiking, … Continue reading A camping we will go…With Girl Scouts
