WHAT ARE YOU DOING? My email joyously provides me with so many exciting things.  I read everything from my blogging friend's posts, to handyman tips, to local area sales (even though we are not leaving the house, I can still buy online should the need arise), so simple things like this: Word of the Day … Continue reading
