Bright Ideas, Happy Accidents, Giving it all away & Making a sale. Or, one damned busy Friday I didn’t expect…

I was drinking coffee on my porch a few days ago, enjoying the morning weather when I was hit by something. My old house used to be a lot longer than the one I have now, and there was a carport attached for my grandma's car (she moved out over 20 years ago).

I didn't wanna clean house, and it was a bit hot outside so I didn't take the dogs out right away when I got home. Rather, … Continue reading In spite of everything, we’ve had some crazy beautiful weather out there…
