Just 20 days till Easter, and some warm days predicted for this week. That I'll believe when I feel it. It's been cold for March. I need to start making my grocery list for our brunch. A few more small home improvement type projects and we'll be ready to go.

Maybe one day Penny will want to know about what Grandma was up to...
For me, it's my life...At Home in English Valley.

Enjoy this beautiful day.
