  • Attractive presentation makes punch taste best

    I was thinking the other day about having a refreshing beverage – it was 90 degrees outside, and my mouth was parched. My mind ran down the list of cool drinks I have prepared in the past.

    I began thinking of new beverages to prepare and how pretty and enticing I could make them look, which truly is a blissful experience for me.  Sometimes I am amazed by where my imagination can go.

  • Easter ‘alleluia’ resonates until feast of Pentecost

    Have you seen the large wooden cross in our churchyard on Fifth Street? I watch people staring at the draped cross as they walk or drive by.

    Some people in the community have asked me why that “white rag” is hanging on the cross. Once in a while, young people rearrange the cloth just for fun.

    Periodically, I wash and iron the cloth because the wind and rain and birds take their toll on it. I am so happy that it is not being ignored.
