World’s most inconsistent blogger.
That would be me. Sometimes I’ve got things to say, sometimes not. And other times I am limited by the amount of time taken up by other things. Like my three darlings. The rundown here since D Paul has been away: 1. The kids are still alive, as am I. There was one night where … Continue reading

The strange addiction known as Pinterest
Have you heard about Pinterest? It’s basically a virtual bulletin board onto which you post (or “pin”) things. Doesn’t sound so exciting, does it? At first, I didn’t think so either. And then you get SUCKED IN. There are recipes. There are crafts. There is fashion, lifestyle, design, organization, quotes, photos….the list goes on and … Continue reading
