…cuz I’m on a roll! (I know, I know, big cornball over here!) It definitely has been a productive day, both outside AND in the kitchen. But I think I can honestly say that I really do not enjoy painting. Thankfully, Mal was here to help me, and I’d say we made a pretty good […]

Howdy friends! I promise, the question will make sense soon… Sometimes I wonder just where the time goes. Today literally flew by, I can hardly believe it’s already 7:30. Sheesh!
