I know I should be writing a book review today, but there has been a change in plans.  I will write the book review on Friday (Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss) and do the week’s highlight today.  I had thought the week’s highlight would be about K’s birthday (which is tomorrow), but hubby had other […]
