It is not that I am sitting around baking up a storm over here. We just had a few birthdays in January. No, really! And tomorrow is my granddaughter’s birthday…..1st. She already had the traditional first piece of cake but might she need another? I have never seen a baby love cake like she did [...]

Visiting Venice on a Breathtaking Day

January 7, 2012

In case you hadn’t heard, we went to Italy.  I know people who travel all over the world and I am sure this is old hat to them but for me, it was a trip of a lifetime.  I enjoyed it so much, but mostly because I was with my kids.  My daughter-in-law is like [...]

Nothing Like Getting Rid of Needless Knick Knacks

July 21, 2011

Quotations Out the Ying Yang
