Switching to a different snack

Friday, August 20, 2010      4 comments

I actually like living in the country

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      7 comments

There are some things you get in the country that is just too hard to find in the city. One of them is wild raspberries. :-D When I bought the hanging strawberry plant this spring, I knew it would interest me in doing other types of g... Read more

No, it's not as bad as the title sounds, but I am agitated today. It's like impatience and irritation and anxiety all rolled into one. And I'm about to start a Whining blog. Get some Cheez before reading on. :-P So, I've been doing ... Read more
