SUCCESSFUL SATURDAY

Although the day was damp and dreary, my house was bright and cheery. Today was my Open House. I was thrilled to see all the wonderful visitors who came to see my many trees.  It was a pleasure to share the stories behind the fifteen trees. Yes, I did say fifteen.

FINE FRIDAY

Did you ever have a day that you enjoyed from the time your feet touched the floor until it was time to climb back into bed?  Or for me until I sat down to write this story. Today was that kind of day for me. My day started like it does every morning with a cup of hot coffee, a […]

As I was thinking about my story, my mind seemed to get stuck on the word, “still.”  It is not uncommon for ideas, words, and pictures to run like a movie through my mind. So, when “still” would not […]
