Energy How are you doing for energy? If you are like me, then your energy waxes and wanes. Seems mine does more waning these days. One lesson I have learned is not to push through exhaustion. I either do something mindless or simply rest up to recharge. Rainbow Scrap Challenge Three cheers for the Rainbow… Continue reading Week in Review 2024 – 07/19

Stymied Today I am feeling stymied about how to frame my post. So, I am simply putting that out there. Being stymied isn’t unusual.
