If it is good enough
Here I go again with yet another virus. This time I'm pretty determined to keep moving. I do smell chicken soup bubbling downstairs. What a husband! So, the best exercise I've had since mowing last week is just little walks. Glad I'm back in the... Read more

walked the dogs the short walk and then mowed the lower acre and side yard for 2.5 hours. I love to mulch the leaves in instead of raking them. Well, maybe it would be more truthful to say I would rather do anything besides raking leaves. So I l... Read more
