The Last Project Before the Trip

Well, that’s a mouthful of a title.  Forgive me.  I’m writing this the night before we leave for Cape Cod, after 5 days of going to bed way too late.  At least I’m not yet at that point where you

Photo Monday – Strawberries and Corn

Mr. Mouse really wanted to build a garden this weekend.  Yes, we’re on the late side for planting.  Okay, the very late side.  The result, apart from a new garden complete with rabbit and bird protection, is that I didn’t
