I’ve looked at the calendar and realized that, since late July, I have spent more time with my feet up (due to the herniated disk in my back) than on my feet. šŸ˜ UGH. That’s a lot of time laying around. No wonder my gardens are riddled with weeds… Anyone who knows what it’s like […]

What is it about bubble wrap?! When I get a package in the mail, the kids look at what’s come, then divebomb for the bubble wrap. It must be human nature to want to poke the bubbles and hear and feel that satisfying snap. I could do it for hours! I saw this at someone’s […]

I have learned a lot as a member of Entrecards, visiting all sorts of blogs. I’ve learned that there are some incredibly talented and witty people who run great blogs, and I’m a lot smarter and blessed by them.

It’s Baaaack!

For us in the Northern Hemisphere– it’s baaaack! Autumn, and winter is on the way! I love autumn– it’s so colorful and the air is crispy clean. And I prefer cooler temperatures. However, as autumn turns to winter, my skin gets horribly, horribly dry. It’s so bad that my hands crack and bleed. No skin […]

That’s what my physical therapist told me. šŸ˜€ My orthopedist says that I still have great strength despite my herniated disk, but I do still need to exercise and continue to strengthen my abdominal muscles.
