No Roomba In The Inn

December 25, 2016

Christmas. The time of year when we think we have to buy a present for every person we know, bake all the cookie recipes known to mankind, completely redecorate the house (including risking life and limb on our roof just for the neighbors’ amusement!), and mail a card to everyone we’ve ever met.

Thankfulness

November 20, 2016

It seems every year, the Christmas “season” starts earlier and earlier!

Spring Cleaning

April 13, 2016

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. There’s just something about the way that new life stems from green blades of grass, blooming flowers and blossoming trees.
