Re: Daily Check in July 14, 2021

Good afternoon friends. It's a hot and hazy day in the middle of a hot and hazy week. Monday I had an ophthalmologist appointment. The cells in my cornea are dying more and more. My doctor is talking about sending me to a corneal specialist in Indianapolis when it's time to do the surgery. Ugh... I ...

Re: Daily Check in July 1, 2021

Good afternoon, frugal friends, and Happy Canada Day to our neighbors to the North. I've had a few days of pure panic.

Re: Are Your Meals More Simple or More Complex?

Re: Daily Check in June 7, 2021

It's raining here again. We have had a very rainy pattern the past few weeks and it looks like it's here to stay for awhile longer. The flowers are loving it. The grass is growing like crazy and everything looks lush and green. I'll enjoy it while it's here. When the searing heat sets in I will long...
