Even eating and giving away cukes to neighbors, I was still … Continue reading Refrigerator Pickles

As of last week, we basically had a piano, one couch, … Continue reading Décor Extravaganza 2018
The days are long. The years are short. The days are too short and this year has flown by. Wait, this day is taking forever. Actually, what day is it? Where are my children?
