Building your own storage in a jiffy!

read

I’ve lived with two disaster zones for the last 3 years or so.  Exhibit A is the spare room closet. This horror is where my clothes and present wrapping stuff/crafts are stored. Why would I stash my clothes in another bedroom other than my own you ask? Because Exhibit B, which IS my closet, houses […]

Dream yards… with a challenge for you

read

The above shows the footwear I was wearing yesterday. We’ve been digging in the garden, but not in the way you may think. Seems our septic tank needed some attention. More to come on that… Although we were ‘forced’ outdoors, it was a pleasure to be out there. I truly think the sun gives me […]

So I stopped everything and tried to educate myself on this new foreign subject and fix what was broke. But I really didn’t have time. Phone calls started reminding me what I was suppose to be doing.
