Looking for a Home Office in Your New Home?

Looking for a Home Office In Your New Home? While I try to put into practice what I preach I don’t always follow my own advice. I LOVE the “idea” of working from home but I must say if the environment isn’t right the actual solitude can quickly turn into isolation and excuses to do anything but work. I may stop to put in a load of laundry, take the doggies for another walk, make lunch, a cup of tea or call a friend. The best way for me to work from home is to make sure I don’t start …

That means you have more time in the day …

I never met a Pumpkin I didn’t LOVE!

I never met a Pumpkin I didn’t LOVE! Pumpkins, like other squash, are thought to have originated in North America. The oldest evidence, pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 BC, was found in Mexico. Since some squash share the same botanical classifications as pumpkins, the names are frequently used interchangeably.
