Hola Peeps,

I'm already pooped from dragging all the stuff outside for the Salvation Army pick-up.

Hi Peeps,

Crystal you are a regular work-horse. The weeds will always be there, but they get less and less as you work them. Thank goodness you are getting in there in May and not July. By July, they are beyond any control. If the weeds are com

Hi Peeps,

What glorious weather for this first day of May.

i am on the mend. My back and body hurt from coughing. I sound like a dog with kennel cough but the fever is finally gone. I've been rubbing my chest and back with essential oil

Hi Peeps,

Wow, the grass is like a green carpet everywhere. That rain made everything pop. Spring is such a gift after all the cold we had. My lilies are coming in everywhere. I need to get out there and clean up a bit.

Hi Peeps,

It's so good to see a blue sky after the wet storms yesterday. The window of the food hut yesterday had sheets of rain slapping us in the face as we tried to take care of customers. It was so hot in that hut yesterday, I found myself
