A Rainy Start on a Road Trip to Sunshine but the Tulips Didn’t Mind!

Monday Musings

Stormy weather all week, within and without. It makes for some pretty windshield art as trees drop the last of their leaves. Inside, Benji has the morning crazies and after a bit of play I send him outside to cool down while I make… Continue Reading “Monday Musings”
