It was 50* here yesterday and I opened everything up wide, then wrapped myself in a blanket on the side porch. It is AMAZING what fresh air and sunshine can do for the spirit! <!--heart_red_3D-->

Taco Meat

Our health department set up a closed pod for school district employees in our county. I couldn’t believe the relief I felt getting the shots.

Mine fire from 66-70 from November to April here in the Midwest. It depends on how cold it is and how strong the wind is! For some reason, the prebiotic owners put in a geothermal heat pump system,...

We were told to take it, but I stopped because admin were changing attendance, because parents don’t like the automated phone call.
