Friends and Flowers

  When you think about it friends are like flowers. When a friendship is nourished it will blossom. Moving here has been amazing. A beautiful home, great neighbors and a new chapter in our life. You might ask, what does this have to do with friends? A lot. We have such sweet and caring neighbors. and so… we have been…

Cruising on our Cruisers

Okay, so the picture is not of Dale and I. Maybe when we were younger and the hair color being reversed, she being brunette and he being blonde. But they are having fun on their Beach Bikes. That’s just what Dale and I did today. We cruised around the neighborhood on our Beach Bikes, with JoJo in his trailer. It…

Skyler Lee became part of our family today, May 26, 2016, at 6:50 am weighing in at 8 lbs. Proud parents Derek and Jocelyn. This is our 6th grandchild. Oh, how time goes by so fast.

And as hard as we tried not to get sick, it was inevitable. By the time his party rolled around Dale and I weren’t able…

It’s rich and moist and the glaze, well, it makes this yummy little treat, decadent! Makes one 9×5″ loaf or 4 small loaves 1 cup almond flour 2/3…
