Patchwork

My name is Donna and I am addicted to two things: HGTV and NCIS with Leroy Jethro Gibbs!!! Since retiring, I have become obsessive about watching HGTV during the day. It really interests me to see Chip and Joanna of their show, Fixer Upper,
take a rundown old home and make it into the prettiest one on the street. “Are ya’ll ready to see your new home?” Joanna asks.

Patchwork

I don’t think I have ever been happier to see Spring than I have this year. There’s nothing like green grass, blooming plants, pretty flowers and the sounds of children playing in their yards at dusk. Knowing summer is on the way makes me so happy.

Patchwork

The nicest thing happened on my birthday! Mom called early and said she and Betty were having coffee. I told her I’d be out in a little while and to keep the coffee hot!I ran into town to Daylight Donuts with plans to get myself a special treat and pick up some glazed donuts to share. While standing in line, one of my favorite former MHS Tiger football players came in. We chatted for a minute as we stood in line and when I ordered my three raspberry jelly donuts and nine glazed, he piped up and told the girl to put that on his tab.
