My late husband grilled steaks and we devoured them while watching our favorite football team on television. It was the best Thanksgiving. Fast forward two years later when we celebrated our last Thanksgiving […]

Special Things

Pine cones aren’t the worst, I suppose.  Some people actually collect pine cones and make homey, folksy art […]

The sun is setting earlier, which used […]
