cold rain falls—
tulips bloom in splendor
spring blessings

    1. Thanks, Kerfe. It’s been a chore to get this house clean and fresh. We had the vents cleaned in the house too! What a difference! We’re still working on a bid for the kitchen. The cupboards are falling apart and need to be replaced. Lots more to do. 🥰

      1. I know what you mean. I cleaned the cupboards and closets, and the built in bookcases, but I still have to do the stove and the bathroom–definitely not my favorite task!
