We had a great weekend because Tacy and Roisin came for 3 days! Our house just livens up when Tacy comes home. The only sport we watch is Formula 1 racing and honestly this was the best race we've watched. It was at a track they'd not raced befo... Read more

Yesterday was probably a perfect day. It was warm with a pleasant breeze. We read books, Jeff mowed the lawn. Simple tacos for dinner. TV on for 1 hour when he said I think I'll just read- no annoying-as-hell gold search shows or explosive movie... Read more
