After a long, cold winter and a bit of a rocky start to spring, for that matter, I am beginning to see signs of fresh, green life returning to my corner of the world. Springs and summers tend to be busy around here, particularly at my day job, where things can get quite hectic, indeed.… Continue reading Hillside Fairy House Hat

It’s the last day of November, and you know what that means, y’all. It’s officially the most wonderful time of the year!
