Spring is on the Way

Yes, Christmas is on the way too – but spring WILL be here sometime in the next couple of months. In the meantime, I will be moving at the end of March and have been packing in advance. The first 2 weeks in March I will be bird and house sitting, so I won’t get… Continue reading Spring is on the Way

It is Officially COLD here

The temperature wasn’t too bad, but combined with the wind and… Continue reading Blustery Day
