It’s Monday…

Slept like the dead last night, struggled to get moving this morning. Brad made coffee and then headed to the farm to pick up the grandsons for a visit.

Time to rip out those rows to fix the mistake, also known as frogging. Rip it. Ribbit. Yeah. Frogging. In anyContinue reading “Frog It!”
