Our oil company overfilled the oil tank when they made our delivery last week. The man caught his mistake before too much oil spilled out, but even a little bit of fuel oil smells bad, and the odor-killing powder that they put down smelled really strong as well. I spent most of the next few… Continue reading All is well and a give-away!
My mother has always been a giving person, especially with her children. lf one of us said to her, "I like the sweater you're wearing mom", she'd inevitably respond, "Do you want it?" or she'd just go change and come out wearing another top, while handing the one we'd admired to us. We've gotten into… Continue reading The key, the lesson, and a give-away!
I think it's about time for another give-away. A tin of the skin balm that I make is the gift. To enter, just comment with an "impossible wish"...something that would be beyond your wildest dreams (but that you would love to see happen anyway). Have fun with this. Your comment can be as silly as… Continue reading Give-away day! A tin of Mary’s Skin Survival Balm

She struggled with life and so other people's victories or happiness felt unfair, or even like an unkind barb to her. As much as I… Continue reading Friendship, and a Blue Moon Giveaway!
A couple of times a year, I go through my books and donate or give some away to make room for the new. Instead of putting this one in the donation bag, I thought I'd offer it here as a give-away. Since I really enjoyed these stories, and we are such a community of animal… Continue reading Loving animals, and a give-away
It is Saturday afternoon here in upstate NY. I met my mother for breakfast today. At the end of our visit, I was telling her about an order of incense that had just been delivered. It is my favorite, and so I order at least 10 packs at a time, because I burn it both… Continue reading Saturday afternoon smile and give-away!
