Christmas in Our Town

Every year our small town holds a Christmas event where everyone gathers together downtown. Downtown is completely shut off and the streets are lined with vendors selling their products, delicious food, hot chocolate stands, rides, games, carriage rides, and pictures with Santa.

Raindrops are Falling on my Head

It's raining. Again. Well, it's passing showers, but it might as well just be raining all day because I cannot get my frames painted! I bought some old picture frames from a thrift sale and have been trying to get them painted. But...RAIN! So instead I decided to stay in and crochet and have some… Continue reading Raindrops are Falling on my Head
