Painted Sunsets in Tucson

People live in Tucson for the sunsets. Each day of our visit, I knew exactly what time the sun would set and had staked out a spot to watch the show. Every single evening is a masterpiece. The sky is a canvas that is painted in a new way. Like a snow flake, no two […]

Just say “No” to the gift card

I’ve been guilty of boring gifting, but no more. I’m ditching the standby Starbucks or Visa cards for more personal, themed gift bags.

What did you read this Summer?

Labor Day is behind us and the kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter… so, hopefully we can all find some time this Fall to curl up with a good book. I recently participated in one of those FaceBook chains that I generally ignore. This one was in support of literacy promotion […]

So, like a lot of commuters, I’m kind of, okay, a lot, hooked on podcasts.  My podcast library is right up there with my Youtube music subscription because whatever I’m in the mood to listen to, is at my fingertips. So whether it’s learning French, solving cold cases, exercise motivation, current events – I’m in.  […]

To App or Not to App?

I’m conducting an experiment. I can’t promise how long it will last and it has already given me a bit of heartburn. I got a new phone, and wait for it, I’m using it just as a phone… mostly.  There is obviously a camera, texting capabilities… and my work email on it but I have […]
