Rachel Anne | Jan 03, 2010

Shortly after we moved to our barn house in the country, we began hearing strange noises in the woods.  It sounded like a woman in distress, day after day, calling for help. We weren’t sure whether to call 911 or just mind our own business, until we discovered the source of the shrieks: wild peacocks. […]

Entertaining on a Dime – Frugal Friday

Priscilla | Dec 31, 2009

New Year’s Resolutions? Nah.

Rachel Anne | Dec 29, 2009

A few years ago I asked my son Grayson, age 12 at the time, if he had any New Year’s resolutions. He thought a moment and then said, “Yeah.  Eat a high fiber diet!” Wait a sec.  Unless Pop Tarts are now considered a health food, I don’t think he had any idea what he […]

He’s Not Exactly a Christmas Donkey

Rachel Anne | Dec 22, 2009

Some of you might be familiar with Flash, my stray donkey who showed up….and never left.  He’s the lovesick dude that Priscilla and I tried to pull home in the story featured in the “Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed” Bible study. Yeah, that donkey. See, we’d only meant to keep Flash overnight, or at least until we […]
