Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Well. . . more like afternoon! Getting a slow start to the day today. It’s a BEAUTIFUL sunny day here in Northern Idaho. Blue skies and sunshine are just what I needed this morning! I’m still on crutches and trying to get around without bearing weight on my left leg. It’s frustrating not being as mobile as I like to be – and I’m trying to rest plenty. But mostly I’m just trying to heal up so I can get on the move again!
