Hey there, hot stuff! How’s your summer starting out? We are hanging in there so far, and I say “so far” because it’s going to be a LONG one.

Happy Sunday! How’d your weekend go? The garden post is coming at you a little late this month, but trust me, you aren’t missing much.  It’s hot and miserable here and the garden hates me right now.  She’s hanging in there, but every day I go out there and things are slooooowly shrinking away.  I […]

Happy Sunday! And Football Season! And the promise of Autumn! I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  Ours is ending very nice indeed.  I planned to get some pretty extensive yard work done today, but Mother Nature had other intentions and dropped a thunderstorm on me about halfway through.  Nothing like tilling and raking […]
