I’m about three quarters of the way through the final book,¬†The…

  • Overdue posts and holiday wishes…

    The year is almost over, and I can’t say I’m sorry to see it go.

  • Post-holiday blues

    Well, this is it. Time to take down the Christmas tree and put away the decorations for another year.
