I sit here with candles lit, I just turned on the stove for tea, and my Spotify radio tuned into classical music. Winter is almost over and the spring rain is returning in my part of the world. The sound of the rain pattering . . . → Read More: The Spring of Hope

I am so bad with dates (It’s a good thing I’m single)! I realized a little belatedly that I had not shared The Fortune Cookie’s birthday with all of you! The Fortune Cookie turned one year old . . . → Read More: The Fortune Cookie Turns 1 year Old!

The Fortune Cookie has been getting a lot of buzz lately. A few days ago, Steven over at Tiny House Swoon gave me some love.

Then There Was Light!

Shelf light. A place for my books! Going to have to find some neat book ends now.
