We Are Determined To Have A Vegetable Garden This Year

This Winter has been. Well. Weird. In fact, I am fairly certain that we broke weather recorded history. For the least amount of snow during the Winter season. We got a few inches here and there. But. It didn't amount to anything and melted the following day.

Our Sweet Sophie Girl Made Her Journey Over The Rainbow Bridge


On Wednesday, I published a blog column addressing my 6-month hiatus from this blog. During these months, a lot has happened. Changed. Transpired. Shifted. I will share that will all of you. However.

Has It Really Been 6 Months?


This was the scene in my Bodacious Workshop a week ago. I was working on 2 of the 3 birdhouses that Lisa would be bringing to New Hampshire today. A day trip. To visit Mom and Dad V.
