We’ve been doing a little research and some much needed reading during this tragic pandemic that’s “no April Fools’ Joke”!

We’ve been doing a little research and some much needed reading during this tragic pandemic that’s “no April Fools’ Joke”! It is hard to believe that this is our reality at this time.

Here are a few blogs, info, ideas and websites that could come in handy in the next few weeks and perhaps month (Let’s all hope not!).

1. Complete a puzzle: The more pieces the better! Feeling extra saucy? Take on a Rubik’s Cube. More of a word person? Crossword puzzle!

2. Start a journal or blog. Sure, it can be about the coronavirus, but it could also be about a specific interest from chess to cheese.

3. If it won’t bother your neighbors: Dust off that old instrument and practice.

4. Text all your exes just in case you have one more thing you wanted to get off your chest.

5. Write poetry. Perhaps you can craft a haiku for Mother’s Day, or something without a specific structure. Just try it!

6. Watch all the really long movies you’ve avoided until now.

7. Download Duolingo, or a similar app, and teach yourself a foreign language.

8. Finally read “Infinite Jest,” “Les Miserables” or even “The Stand.” Go all in and read “Ulysses.” You got this.

9. Meditate. Try lying down with your eyes closed, palms up and while focusing on your breath. Or spend 20 minutes sitting crosslegged and repeat a soothing word to yourself in your head. (The latter is more like transcendental meditation.)

10. Face masks, moisturizer, oh my! Treat yourself to a 10-step skin care routine you don’t have time for during a normal work week.

  • Are your kids at home and incredibly bored right about now? Then take a look at this list of “TO DO IDEAS” put together by Monica Housewright (www.housewrightfence.com – co partner and owner of House of Mo’s Boutique) after she surveyed moms and mom groups all over the DFW areas. https://www.housewrightfence.com/100-ideas

Are You Ready for July to End and August to Begin?

It is hard to believe that in a couple of weeks (in some cities) school will be starting and families will be looking for some last minute “Stay Vacay” fun. Here are a few suggestions for some nearby Dallas / Fort Worth vacay fun:


Only about 35 miles north of downtown Dallas, McKinney offers a great getaway for the day or the weekend. Plan to spend some time discovering the shops, boutiques and outside dining options in and around the charming downtown square, anchored by the courthouse. Favorites include Cadillac Pizza Pub, Landon Winery and the Sweet Spot bakery and coffee shop, which has the best scones around. Many of the establishments invite you to linger with live music during the evening. Wildlife and hiking fans will enjoy the Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary with its 289-acre nature preserve and miles of nature trails, plus a plant garden, butterfly house and indoor exhibits.


Halfway between Dallas and Austin is the college town of Waco, home to a world-class zoo and several museums for children and adults alike. Adjacent to the Brazos River, the 52-acre zoo is spread out and has lots of shade and splashing waterfalls, so it’s a perfect antidote to the Texas sun. Be sure to check out the Komodo dragon and Galapagos tortoises, along with the orangutans and Sumatran tigers. The Mayborn, on the Baylor University campus, is especially fun for children because of its interactive stations and displays. Adults will also enjoy the natural history, especially the Waco Mammoth exhibit. Here, guests can walk on a see-through floor to look down upon casts of the Columbian mammoth bones displayed exactly as they were unearthed at the Waco Mammoth Site, just five miles from the Baylor campus. Visit the Collin Street Bakery and enjoy a slice of pie, a macaroon, or their famous fruitcake. For those in search of a bit more protein, Rudy’s BBQ will certainly hit the spot. There’s ‘Sissy Sauce’ for those who prefer a little less kick.


One hour southwest just off Highway 377 is the quaint town of Granbury. Spend the day shopping and exploring the stores and old jailhouse on the square. Stay in one of the many bed and breakfasts or inns to take full advantage of the nightlife, including ghost tour and the historic Brazos Drive-In movie theater. Whatever you do, don’t miss a production at the beautifully renovated 1886 Opera House. If you are there on a Saturday afternoon, check out the widely popular Revolver Brewery.

Tyler and Bullard

While most people head to Tyler (just two hours east of Dallas on I-30), for the roses, there’s plenty more to discover while in the area. Just a few miles south of town, the American Freedom Museum, located on the campus of The Brook Hill School in Bullard, has an expansive collection filling 15 galleries. The Hall of Presidents includes a signed document by every president, from George Washington through to President Obama, and the Hall of Freedom chronicles the major conflicts in which the United States has been involved since the Revolutionary War. Ten minutes east of the museum is Kiepersol, an estate winery, distillery, restaurant and bed and breakfast. Founded by South African native Pierre de Wet, the estate is well known for its quality and service. Wine tastings are at one’s leisure, and both wine tours and distillery tours are offered at designated tour times with no reservations needed. Stay for dinner and enjoy steak or seafood while surrounded by the two-story wine cellar with hundreds of wines from around the world.

Lakewood Title is a wonderful company to work with.

“Lakewood Title is a wonderful company to work with. They stand out in my mind because of how willing and available to help me or answer any question I might have in the process of a refinance due to divorce. During times such as these (divorce) when doing anything is difficult, it’s a true blessing to have people who really care. That’s the experience I had with Lakewood Title.” ~ Google Reviewer
