Hurrah. Hurrah.

I’m sorry to constantly be posting about infestations, but the bugs are coming out in full force. Some tiny ants were coming in the back door to get at the cat food, so I tried to put some Terro in their path. The bottle was old and its contents were too crystalized, so I just […]

Dinner and an Auction

My Dad called this week and asked if we wanted some company for the weekend. I said that I thought we were pretty free, but I’d better check with Lauren.
