I haven't really traveled … Continue reading Work Training – Wisconsin Dells!

Happy Fourth of July to our American folks! Enjoy the fireworks, burn some sparklers, and stay cool! No post today. *smile*
My garden has... gotten out of hand. For some reason, a strange type of grass has seeded in EVERYTHING, and I just couldn't keep ahead of it. Then a heat wave hit, and I was miserably sure the garden was a lost cause. I just couldn't stand the heat to try and deal with it. … Continue reading Clever~! Or How To Garden In Style
