The 133's. It is where you can find books about crystals, tarot, witchcraft, astrology... You… Continue reading Alignment in the Public Library
We love games at our house. Rummy, Settlers of Catan, Cards Against Humanity, just to name a few. But the Minimalist Game is something quite different. We are not minimalists, but would love to be.

Today, it's just strange. Apparently there is a cyclone on it's way and you can just feel it in the atmosphere. A chilly breeze from the north, a humidity you can see in the air. It's all quiet except for the cicadas. So while we have the chance, today was spent outside for a long… Continue reading Happy Friday!!! (and fruit picking!!)
