Wicked Walk 28/May/18

I promised y’all a walk soon and here it is! I suppose 97% of Americans who aren’t at work on Memorial Day spend it at the lake.  I am not part of the 97%.  First of all, I can’t swim.  I sink like a rock.  Secondly, I’m REALLY white.  Like, blindingly and I don’t want…

Taking Shape

I hope I’m not boring you with house stuff, but that’s the biggest thing going in my world right now. I’ve tried to take a few seconds to soak in the details. Wood shavings…. Penciled in notes….. And doors marked just for us. I told my husband, just last night, how this doesn’t seem real.…

Albeit, it is not my low-country cottage with enclosed porches and a library like Belle had in Beauty and the Beast, but hey. …

Hi everyone!

Hi y’all!  I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, although some days it feels that way!  I’m just hiding out, rather unwillingly, waiting on the blessed day I regain internet service!  Good news is, my darling husband informed me, they are coming to set the forms for concrete tomorrow!  Happy Day!  That is…
