    Happy Labor Day to me! And Happy Birthday to my Nathan, of course! He is 3-dozen-years-old today. Holy-Moley.  How can I be old enough to have a 36-year-old???

    i’m launched!

    What an exciting day for me! I finally have a website for all my ‘make it yourself’ stuff! This website has been more of a dream than reality for longer than I care to admit. My son, Adam, was kind enough to bear with me (with a lot of patience, trust me!) and helped me [...]
