Take a look at the beautiful flower pictures on Peggy’s website!


My cousin, Peggy, has posted some really gorgeous flower pictures on her website, PeggyGates.com. I love them. They are a feast for the eyes when it is gray and dim outside! It reminds me that beauty can be found in the rainstorm… if you have the right perspective. I love spring!

Time to grow up (or get a smaller chair)!


I thought it would be fun to share this fun photo taken of me in a giant chair at St. Louis Family Church. Fun, ehh? Brett would love to have it. It would look good next to the R2D2 giant plastic mold and the 3 Stooges statues.

I take back that spring comment – snow in March?!


I guess I spoke too soon! We had snow last night, but luckily I covered my flowers and they survived. I saw one of the coolest visuals ever last night in the snow. Brett and I were driving home from my dad’s house after midnight. The snowflakes were clumped together. It was snowing steadily. Suddenly, […]

Space Heaters Are the Bomb!


For the past year since I’ve been working at home, I often get a bit chilled. My desk is right next to one of our 40-year-old windows, so I guess it’s a draft. But a few weeks ago when it was bitter cold outside and snowing, I declared to Brett that, “I had to have […]

Published on GetRichSlowly.org: Creating a Stir about Credit Cards!


A few weeks ago I wrote a post on ColemanUnlimited.com about credit cards making me money–and I funny experience I had on the phone with a bank customer service rep. Brett suggested I submit it to one of his favorite personal finance blogs, GetRichSlowly.org. So we did. The editor, J.D. Roth liked the post and […]

Grateful for Jesus


Today I am grateful for my savior. I’m grateful that He was born and that He took away all my sins and infirmities. I’m grateful I get a day off to think about what He did for me. I am so glad that I am not alone, for He said He would never leave me […]
