    I am SO glad this week is over. I’ll be even more grateful when tomorrow is over, but at least today is Friday. Some new furniture is coming for me…yey, but that means then I need to do more organizing. Crazy times.

    clear sunny day, is it April yet? Clear, hot sunny days will be the norm for the rest of the year after that point … along with the horrid humidity. We have two season in Texas. Summer and almost summer.

    sometimes, a good book is the only way to while away those sweltering heat … of course a good book is perfect any time you have a few minutes… or hours … to spare
