I’ve been meandering down memory lane again.
My external hard drive crashed.
The one I keep all my photos on.
I have them backed up (thankfully) but I still have to go through them all, sort them out, get them organized, etc.
There are some … Continue reading.....
I can't believe they're 2 years old!
It seems like only yesterday that they were lost in the sunflowers…. And we were still able to carry them home.
I couldn't carry either one now – although they could probably carry me.

No recipe today.
Sometimes we eat food that really isn't worthy of a post.
