I have always wondered why the days of winter go by so slowly while the days of summer fly by. Here it is the end of June and there’s so much I want to do before hibernating begins (for me that begins when pumpkins start showing up on front porches).
Remember, last winter we were all waiting anxiously for summer? Well, it’s here.
If it ever arrives, what are your plans for this Summer? When Summer finally gets here, I promise not to complain about the heat. I may decide to stay inside in air conditioning, but I won’t complain, honestly.
Between the cold, the snow and the general ickyness (is that a word?) we have lived through since Christmas, many of us. . .okay me. . .have been in total hibernation mode. Now that we’ve seen a little sun, felt a little warmth, maybe we can put away our warm winter throws and get ready for …
I am sure some of you are suffering from cabin fever. But a wonder if any of you have caught what I have come down with - reverse cabin fever.
Well, that was a unique way to start a new year. A snow storm and wind chills that broke records. The only time I went outdoors was to snap pictures of my husband blowing snow off the driveway. It was tough.
My family and I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas. We hope that all your wishes come true today and throughout the new year..
Irving Berlin could always write the perfect song for any holiday. His tune "Count Your Blessings" is great for Thanksgiving.
I really don’t like mentioning Christmas before Halloween or Thanksgiving, but. . .
That was an interesting summer, don't you think? Other than snow, I think we had all the seasons in one, spring to summer to fall to summer again. That’s why I love Northwest Indiana, always an adventure.

Memorial Day is Monday, and for some people, it’s become a three-day mini-vacation, filled with planting and a cookout or two. Sometimes, we seem to forget the true meaning of Memorial Day.
This Sunday, you can make a difference in the life of a Wounded Warrior. All you have to do is eat breakfast.
If spring’s arrival hasn’t inspired you to start cleaning out your garage, attic, or basement, watch an episode of TV's "Hoarders." I’ve emptied entire rooms during the commercials.

Daylight savings time begins March 10. Yes, I know it’s more than a month away, but it’s a date I look forward to almost as much the White Sox spring opener - April 1 vs. Kansas City Royals.
Even though Christmas was yesterday (for most of us), it’s not over until the tree comes down or the cookies are gone, whichever comes first, and if you’re a betting person, bet on the cookies.
Hopefully, everyone had a great Thanksgiving and lots of fun at the Town of Schererville's and Schererville Chamber of Commerce's Christkindlmarket. Thanks to all the vendors who came and braved the night.
Fall is definitely in the air. Pumpkins and scarecrows are starting to show up on doorsteps and leaves are beginning to change color and fall. Pretty soon, Halloween Peeps will make their annual appearance.
