Life seemed to take a bit of a vacation right before Christmas Day. My three day work weeks were decadent and wonderful and I enjoyed every bit of them. But now we are back to real life. I’m not complaining (well, not a lot, anyway), but it isn’t easing its way back…I got one day […]
but first I had to drink my smoothie…banana, strawberry, spirulina, apricot nectar and a little vanilla ice cream…yum!

We are so thankful for good health and a comfortable home and jobs…thankful that […]
