You Are Now Entering A Stress-Free Zone

As our youngest son commented  "Its good to see the rooms cluttered with things instead of debris" - that was certainly a welcomed way… Continue reading You Are Now Entering A Stress-Free Zone

Sewing On Gilligan’s Island

A three-hour tour....a three-hour tour....we can all sing along to that famous theme song. It's been like a three-week tour as I sit here and wonder just where did May go?
