    Another time, I guess.

    My version of what to do on a Wednesday and my husband’s version of what to do on a Wednesday are not the same.  You see, when I woke up this morning I thought to myself,  …what a perfect day to do nothing except read.  just bounce around from magazines to blogs, then books.  But my husband woke up and thought to himself, …what a great day to paint the walls in my house.  Now, obviously my idea is just an illusion.  There is no way that will ever happen anytime soon.  But still, I didn’t expect to find my husband and Nathan painting our dinning room and hallway after…

    I Hate When Things Bite Me In The Butt

    It’s not too surprising that I wrote a blog post adorned with cozy pictures of my homemade hot chocolate, followed by a trail of words that shunned summer, that in return, summer would show me what’s, what. This very fateful day started off great; the middle was pretty good, too. But by 4:00pm the city’s electric company blew a breaker (or at least that’s what I picture in my mind). Half of the town was left without power; this included my house. We found this information out while trying to make a quick run to the store, which were all closed due to no power. And because summer wanted to…

    snow

    Ever since we moved back to the south, this is the one thing we miss the most. Snow. A lot of people don’t like it because it’s cold, but I love it because it’s cold. When snow flurries begin spilling from the sky, children cuddle up beneath the covers, hot soup warms the body and the soul, while a warm house becomes the cozy retreat you’ve been waiting for all year long. Suddenly a book and a blanket becomes your best friend. Ahh…snow.  I’ve missed the good and bad times we’ve shared.   😐 Tonight, snow has come for a visit, waaay down in the south, and I couldn’t be more…
