Rainy Days and Sunday

And now I find myself singing The Carpenters Rainy Days and Mondays. For those of you who have no idea who The Carpenters are, here you go.

Merry Christmas, Wicked Weather

Guess we’re in Texas now :-0 Our first Christmas in Texas was really quite nice.  The girls were excited Christmas morning to discover gifts under our little tree.  Of course it meant more stuff in our small space that have no home, but I’ve managed to find places to put some things and today I’m offContinue reading “Merry Christmas, Wicked Weather”

Sadly, it doesn’t appear we’re done with the snow as we have more snow forecast mid-week and this weekend.  Ugh!!!! However,Continue reading “Record Breaking Winter May Cause Delays”
