Lucy’s Hiding Place

The other day I was trying to find Lucy, but I wasn’t having any luck.  Finally, I heard her collar tinkling from our closet.  Even then I didn’t find her right away.  I’m just reallyContinue reading

Dilemma Solved

One of my favorite blogs to read is Ree Drummond’s The Pioneer Woman.  I’ve posted recipes from Ree’s blog, I’ve entered her photography contests, and I laugh each time I read it.  Today, I readContinue reading
