Father’s Day – 6/20/2021

When I think of Father’s Day, I like to think of a relaxing day doing whatever nothing I want and the kids leave me alone.

Strawberry Syrup – 6/6/2021

We Got A Chipper – 5/8/2021

We purchased a chipper to help get rid of wood waste that we cut down on our new property. As an added bonus, we could use the chips as mulch and never have to purchase mulch again.
