Here are some highlights of the day! The granola bar 😉 …
Around a week ago, I came across the world of gutter gardens while searching online for container garden ideas.  I knew  that if we were going to have a garden, it needed to be low maintenance and out of reach of or dog and other roaming animals (devil rabbits!).  I also don’t have the need …
My husband needed some new aftershave and wanted to purchase something without alcohol.  We searched and searched and couldn’t find anything so he asked me to “whip something up”.  Uhhhh…. okay….
