Wicked Walk

Thanks to God, Jesus, Mother Nature and Mark Scrito (our weatherman) Wednesday July 16th was gloriously cool!  Upper 60’s and sunny with a slight breeze, thank merciful heavens!  I didn’t even break a sweat until I was 2/3 of the way home from my 2.5 mile excursion. Here is what I saw. The railroad tracks…

New Shoes

     Do you have a list of things you are going to ask God when you get to heaven?  I know I do.  After I meet Moses, Noah and Daniel I’m going to get down to the matters that weigh on my brain daily like “Why can’t I get a tan instead of turning a brilliant lobster…

Tuesday~The new Monday

Yesterday I took a vacation day to celebrate my daughters 6th birthday with her.  I still went in to work for 45 minutes to order feed but hey, 45 minutes is better than 10 hours.  So it was awesome.  This morning I get out of bed, late.  I go to make Addie a peanut butter and jelly…
