My favorite season of the year is Winter, followed by Autumn, Spring, and dead last Summer. However, having lived in a climate most of my life, and enjoying all four seasons in their best and worst times, I couldn't think of a...

On my way home from work, I decided to stop and grab some fast-food, as it was late, I was tired, and I didn't feel like cooking when I got home. When I placed my order in the drive-thru line, the manager told me that my order...

Today was a little cooler and I could definitely feel fall in the air. I swept dried leaves off our deck and I can see more sky through the withering leaves. Fall is here. It sneaked in quiet as a mouse and within a couple of...

The photo is of the top of our car with the caravan on behind. It’s a bit of strange angle but I wanted to show you how little room there is each side of the caravan when it is backed into the shed. We won’t be needing it till...

Deborah-Diane @DianneN - We used to go river rafting when we were young. It is so much fun! It will be pleasant here in Southern California most of the year. There is generally only a 10 to 15 degree difference between summer and winter. I have become such a wimp since...
