So Sleepy…

As I sit here on this dreary, gray, rainy Monday, the thought of taking a nap definitely crosses my mind!  Hunkering down on the sofa under the soft handmade cotton blanket my Mom knitted for me, with the Golden Girls playing on the DVD player in the background of course is a stellar idea.   My […]
