it’s March !

March comes and goes – like a lion or a lamb – bringing spring to the north and winter to the south poles of our planet. Like any youngster, March can’t settle on its disposition. One day it’s soft, warm and lovely–the next it’s cold, wild and foul. Either way, ya gotta love March because…

There’s nothing I love…

No stories. Not really much of anything creative. Just barely strength enough to do the daily “have to” chores. Our valley…

leaving July

Re-inventing myself again! July has been a month of change here at the cottage. We replaced a dilapidated, leaky storage shed with something more substantial and useful. The garden and patios have been “under” construction since the 4th of June. And, since yours truly is the go-fer on our construction projects, blog posts have been way…
