About Me

to my swap partners....I received a cute garden flag that came from Amazon directly to me, but no name or swap. SO please if its yours let me know so I can give you credit for receiving this cute flag!!

Things are improving, but still quite hard. Things pop up and more for them to deal with. ♥♥ sept 12 update: Girls are doing much better. school activities are keeping them busy. Thanks to all my swapper and their patients with me. ♥

August 29 update:

Its still been really rough on my granddaughters. They will be spreading their dads ashes on his birthday, Sept 1. They are planning to go where they camped alot up in the mountains of Adirondack which is about a hour away from them. So please be patient with me as I help them stroughle through all of this.
Things are getting better now that the funeral is over. But the girls are taking it rough. I'm trying to be there for them as much as possible. Juliana 15th Bday was day after funeral. That was hard. Thanks for your understanding. I will try very hard to send all swaps on time..

Hi, Patti!


Once Upon An Autumn Day - Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

Once Upon an autumn day, Colorful leaves began to fade In the midst of a chilly, frosty air As multitude of trees grew steadily bare.

Once upon an autumn day, The whispering breeze was here to stay Moving aimlessly through the countless trees Scattering leaves with the greatest of ease.

Once upon an autumn day, The leaves whirled freely in every way, Until at last they came to rest Finding a haven in which to nest.

Once upon an autumn day, The trees were dormant, and the leaves lay Waiting for the winter snow to fall To quickly obscure them one and all.

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne
