I've worked a little on decorating the she-shed/apartment...I had this window that originally looked out the back of the shop but we built a shed on that side of the shop and so the window looked into this shed...I hated it and so I covered the ... Read more

Been so busy lately. We had a lot of rain last week up to 8 inches in one day...flooding and all but water went down rather quickly. It pretty well wiped out our garden so it has been bush hogged. ... Read more
