For the first time in the 13+ years we've lived here, we've had an actual monsoon-type summer which means that all the weeds which have been waiting patiently in the ground have really taken off. Which means weeding. Not a favorite activity but we've… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 32

This year is really flying by - I can't believe we are only 10 days out from the end of June!

Year of Projects: Week 23

It was really nice to have a long weekend here in the US for Memorial Day. Both my DH and I had a pretty quiet weekend, but I think we're both back to 100% now, although our little town and the area where he works have been hit pretty hard by COVID these last couple… Continue reading Year of Projects: Week 23
