Friends, Football, and Fun

I must confess, I packed a lot of living into my Sunday this past weekend.  The hubby and I hosted a brunch for ten friends, we witnessed a football game of epic proportions, and we played the most extraordinary and engaging board game with a pair of our lively grandkids.  Life is good. Sunday morning …

Six for Saturday

I must confess I am a sucker for sweet sounding alliteration (did you catch that?) which is why many of my blog articles are entitled this way.  Anyway, it's about time I posted again, but I’ve been preoccupied with a variety of late summer activities which have kept me away from my laptop lately.  But today …

The Big Reveal

I must confess that I've been a little less than enthusiastic about blogging lately.  Recently several people asked my about my blog, and I thought it was about time to get back into the swing of things.  When my daughter in particular asked why I haven't been posting, I thought about it and replied honestly, …

The Perfect Word to Describe Today

via Daily Prompt: Fret I must confess, when I saw the Daily Prompt today I was shaking my head and saying, "Yes! Today is a day to fret."  In a recent post I was excited to tell you about some upcoming renovations we were doing to our home, and today was carpet installation day.  Only …
