It is nearly that time of year, when you can sit outside on your porch without fear of melting or being carried off by large insects.

The Lantana Plan: Summer into Fall

It’s July, and summer is still present. However, fall is trying to sneak in. I saw leaves turning red on a neighbor’s tree. Blink, and you’ll be wearing that scarf and hat you keep somewhere.

With the right crust base, you won’t go wrong.  Building […]

Guiding Home – Hatteras

“I can think of no other edifice constructed by man as altruistic as a lighthouse. They were built only to serve.” ― George Bernard Shaw I adore the ocean; its moodiness and its calm.  The moodiness of changing colors of the waters and the intensity it takes to build the wave-capped foam, that is yet, so […]
