Our youngest daughter is married to a Brazilian. Not only is he an exceptional handyman and can fix just about anything, we also have been introduced to these yummy, cheesy snacks.

Tuesday Thoughts: It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

As Hurricane (now Tropical Depression) Florence winds her way up the coast on her way to finally fizzling out, we are feeling the effects here in New England. Nowhere near what the Carolinas and Virginia experienced, but it is raining pretty darn good out there right now. It looks like this is what we will … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: It’s Raining, It’s Pouring
