    That's me, Mrs. Storytime today. It went well, and I already surpassed my daily walking goal (5000 steps), and we still have Bible study tonight.

  • I did not get my hyacinths this year! that is a bad sign for me.

    4/19/2017 7:28:19 AM, by CTUPTON

    I have been way too tired too many days. I ALWAYS get hyacinths for Easter. It does not feel like Easter to me till that fragrance is in the house. It is very hard to rouse myself to go driving.
