You mean there is a Biltmore in AZ? I thought it was only in NC! I will have to google it and see :)

Enjoy your sleep in your very own bed!!

Oh, Wow...lush! Very nice hotel!


I love Malory Towers too! I've given my books off, though. Oh well. I'm determined to scout for those books after my exams. Can't wait for the 20th of November. That is when I will be free from all my work and can go scouting for books!

Looks like you had fun during your trip! That's nice!


Ah, I dream of the day I can visit a Trader Joe's. Some of my friends from California talk about it all the time. I'm green with envy!

Hi Joanne-

I really enjoyed your book, Living Simply. I'm rereading it again. I also love sweet stories. Thanks for recommending Betsy-Tacy. I'm on the second book. I just watched (again) You've Got Mail and Meg Ryan's character mentions the Betsy-Tacy books. I couldn't believe it. I wish I would have known about these books as a girl. Anyway, I taught lang.arts before my son was born and LOVE to read. He's now five and my only child.

From sunny Fl. your leaves look great. Of course, I decorate for fall too (Fake leaves, always. :-))

Take care and I enjoy your website.
