It’s pretty hard to sit at the beach and not notice people. It’s probably the only time when I wish I had my husband’s bad eyesight. He takes off his glasses and only sees blurred images. For the most part, I avert my eyes. (This is also the reason we head for the ocean in … More Beach Bodies
“What a nice group of people.” The comment was made several times, and I had to agree. Of course, they were all my relatives!

The garden is ready, but for what? It’s ready to rest; however, any seeds that are still in the … More Ready, Set, WAIT!
What makes the perfect seashell? Last week I enjoyed a morning stroll on the beach. Usually, that’s my husband’s routine; however, since his fall in March, long walks are still a trial. This vacation was a step into the unknown: How much would he be able to walk or enjoy the beach? Certainly, life has … More The Perfect Shell, or Finally Home!

“Your carrots look really good,” my mom said as she looked out my kitchen window. Ah yes, two lacy green rows of baby carrot tops all in a straight row – nice and thick. “Yes, I bought my seeds from the local hardware store,” I said. “Only paid fifty-two cents for a half scoop of … More Too Much Green in My Garden?
