Due to the regular “busyness” of my life – church work, sickness, housework, homeschooling – I am taking a break from blogging. I do not know how long it will last.

I have this wonderful friend, Dixie, whom I seem to have fooled completely. She seems to think I’m organized, disciplined or creative. Man. Is she blinded by kindred spirit friendship or what?
