February updates and favorite blogger posts.

    But where are the clowns?, send in the clowns.                              Stephen Sondheim. What a month. We had an incident here at our home but it involves politics. Something that is  going on here in our state that I fear will cause or trigger others if I go into too much detail. That right there is your…

A rainbow of colors in an Arizona Sonora desert.

“Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.” Mayo Angelou  Thought I share some Spring time colors to brighten your day. Been a lot of snow out there in the world lately. Hope you are all safe and staying warm. These photos are from my many hikes and walks over the years here in my home…

Sunday greetings and a box of blessings.

ASD table time crafts…speech lessons.

A chocolate house for Valentine’s Day.

A whole lot of DIY for Valentine’s Day.

We have been getting a lot of rain here in Arizona. A lot to me that is. Even those tiny sprinkles with shady clouds are treats to me. Just something to break up having the same weather every day. Here in the desert we love rain storms. You all know what happens when it rains,…
