Carol’s Ramblings

It has been raining for days and dreary! I’m a sunshine kind of girl but I will not complain. At least we are not in the midst of a hurricane! I pray for the safety of those who are in the midst of Florence at the moment and I hope everyone does all they can to help those people.

Fall is bearing down on us and there is nothing to stop it.  I just wish the weather would clear up a bit.  A little bit of sunshine goes a long way.

I hope you enjoy the articles this month.  If there is something specific that you would like me to cover, please let me know and if you have any tips to share I would love to hear about them!

Until next time, take care and be kind to all…
