Summer is here! It’s hot, my daughter’s been repeating the dreaded phrase “I’m bored”, the pop-cycles are chillin’ in the freezer, and there seems to be a yard sale waiting for me every Saturday morning. A cluttered, junky yard sale on a Saturday morning is my idea of Summer!
Salutations! Well, I’m at it again. Our mantel has been feeling a little left out lately.
