The grand fairies love to do art projects in front of the tv. (Actually, I won't let them watch tv without a project in their hands, Legos, play dough, coloring, anything other than simply staring at the screen). So, we've... Continue reading

Birdsong is BACK! I sure missed hosting it in 2016, and was afraid that this year would zoom by and I would miss seeing my Peeps yet again. So, I decided to make it work for later in the year.... Continue reading

Marilyn, I think that Debbie still blogs sometimes and Beth does for sure, but not regularly. I miss the days of a long list of new posts to read on a regular basis too! I just keep plugging along, because by now, it is more of a habit for me, like keeping a diary. I hope that someday, my grand fairies will start at the beginning and read through to relive all the adventures we had together.

As I love to do when I visit a beach, especially my beloved, Siesta Key, I leave behind a thank you fairy after collecting shells during my stay. I wonder if anyone ever sees them? I always hope a small... Continue reading
