We just returned home from a week at camp.  My Love was the speaker for the group of ten to twelve year olds enjoying Adventure Camp; my df girl and I worked in the kitchen while my cl boy hung out with friends and helped out here and there.

june bugs and hard days

June bugs.  I don’t especially appreciate these nasty bugs who seem to fly without any direction or purpose into my window and worse…into my person.

take time to share your heart

Ahhh spring…just breathe it in.  The snow giving way to new life as the spring flowers send up brave little shoots.  The pleasant smell of freshly exposed earth and the heralding of warmer days ahead.  The gentle rain and invigorating sunshine.  The days grow longer and I feel inspired to be more. It makes me want to…… Continue reading take time to share your heart
