One Day My Heart Just Opened Up

If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that we have been having housing problems.  Oh my goodness!  That sounds so tame!  No, really, we have been living in a homeless shelter!  Our story is not the worst one here.  It’s so terribly distressing how hard some of  the nicest peopleContinue reading “One Day My Heart Just Opened Up”

I have wanted to make pie for quite a while now, but when you’re staying in a homeless shelter, well, it can be a challenge. I had some apples from the trees in the back. I then bought raspberries.
