What I did during my blog break

Ledges Trail in Twinsburg

I had a great weekend.  It wasn’t filled with travel, big adventures, or anything of an exotic nature.  Instead, it was a weekend at home getting caught up with the laundry, the housework, the Big Decluttering Project, and working outside in the garden.
