S’more Summer

Originally uploaded by Jill Elfering. We had our first golf outing of the summer on Sunday – a Par “not-quite-3” for me. After sleeping in, we had spent most of Saturday lazing around, at the pool and on the couch. I enjoyed a two-hour nap while Jeremy played on his computer. We had a Memorial […]

St. Richard’s “Talent for Humanity”

St. Richard’s held its 2nd annual talent show to raise money for Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.

As Jeremy and I have had many discussions on this topic, I thought I’d better take the test and see where I fit in on the scale. My results are below. Apparently I’m just […]

18 Holes w/Sled

I love the midwest, really I do. I don’t know if I’d like living in a different climate. I love the seasons, especially spring. I’ve been saving my money to buy a new set of irons. Two weeks ago it was 80 degrees, so I thought I’d better order them soon so I can get […]
