April Monthly Wrap-Up and Book Haul


Wow! That month just flew by! I’ve been quite busy and there is no sign of slowing down. I was out of town twice this month and have been working on many home projects. The latest project is laying new bark in the yard. I just love how fresh bark looks and smells.

Below you will find my largest book haul to date! Now I just need several extra hours a day to read them all.
