Forms…Do we have to love ‘em?

Posted on November 30, 2015 by Wanda Sturrock, Sister #3399

How did America go from ‘the land of the free’ to the land of the form?

I am hard pressed to think of many things we can do today without filling out a form. And those things would probably all be considered the very basics of nature. But, who knows? One day we may need a form, or permit, to do those, too.

Think about it. The demand for forms begins before we’re even born. Mothers-to-be must fill out forms with questions demanding everything from the date of her first burp to the cause of death of her relatives going clear back to…Noah!

Who knows those things? If you find yourself thinking, as I have, that someone must have jotted down those tidbits somewhere…good luck with that ... Read more →

I am a very fortunate women. My husband brings me my coffee every morning and it is the best coffee ever! No kidding...I always compare every cup of coffee against his and none have ever come close.

Isn't it funny how life can be that way too ... Read more →

But when I think of South Dakota in winter, it brings to mind a palette of blues, browns, and whites.

The blue skies of winter can be breath taking. The muted tones at sunset ... Read more →

My dining room is complete!

Posted on November 29, 2015 by Rachel Hayden, Sister #5159

Slowly getting this new house decorated. Ever since I bought the vase now sitting on my new dining room table, I envisioned a maritime theme for my dining room. I went to Olde Central Antique Mall down the hill in Port Orchard today and came home with the decorations I needed to complete my theme. I love it! Next to finish is the guest room, which will be done in a Pacific Northwest theme.

Come check out my dining room! ... Read more →
