A garden is much like cooking breakfast.

A garden comes together much like breakfast.

You choose the main elements.

Almost there…

The snow is slowly melting.

Gus is still on vacation! He thinks you should take it easy today!

Today will be a good day for an iced double mocha latte at Cup-A-Joe while the snow melts. Relax and read the paper out the recycle bin and chat with people I know.

Tomorrow will be a better day to do yard work if the rain holds off with the warm temps in the 60s.
