A Giant Garage Sale, a Lemonade Stand & a Hopeful Harvest ((and lots of sandwiches for dinner))

Whew. We have been working hard in my little corner of the world! First, I just pulled off the impossible & entered the garage sale hall of fame. Pictures don’t completely express the depth of despair I felt as I sat among the piles, rather […]
