What’s the attraction?


Do you use magnets on your refrigerator? There are times when my refrigerator looks more like a bulletin board. I have tons of family photos on there, wedding invitations, reminders and, my favorite, artwork from my niece and nephews. I have quite a collection of magnets that I use to hold everything in place.

Have you noticed the birds chirping first thing in the morning? A sure sign that spring is creeping up on us. I, for one, am beyond ready and excited. I love almost everything about spring.
