Hello to you, my friend...


It's been forever since I've sent out a newsletter, partially because I've been busy taking care of my 86-year-old mom and partially because I upgraded my Dreamweaver software and it has turned out to be darned difficult for me because my pooh bear brain can only learn new things in small spoonfuls.

We are all healthy and doing well. Thank you to everyone for all the kind emails over the last year. They are encouraging.

Summer is coming and this week I'm working on a list of fun things to do that don't cost a ton of money like picnics, potlucks and nature walks. What kinds of things to do make you happy? If you have a suggestion post it on my blog =


Wishing you all good things,

"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.

A Garland of Friends

Here are some pages of paper animal friends to cut out and make into a garland.

You can also use them as  encouraging cards to share or paste into a book. What stories can you make up?
