Patio Update

We’ve been in a holding pattern with the patio now that the concrete has been poured. Framed and ready for the sludge.  We opted to have the patio built three feet farther out from the house than it was originally.  This will make it a bit more useable, with more space for an eating area, […]

Read It: Wild

Wild By Cheryl Strayed Sheer craziness.  I mean cray cray to the hilt.  Memoir of a woman who at 26 years old hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (which runs from California through Washington).  She did it alone.  With a massive backpack, almost no hiking experience, barely any money, and no clue how much it would […]
