Sunshine Blogger

Outside, it is overcast, raining, windy here today. But it is warm, so it’s not all bad. Inside it’s all sunshine.

  1. Somehow a slug got in our bathroom a few nights ago. (Somehow=Little Man) I didn’t want to touch it and hubby was asleep, so the few times I went in I was petrified of stepping on the thing. Just ugh!


  2. Slugs are cool! And so is the Usual Suspects or anything with Spacey. Thanks for the nomination, Eric! Made my day!!! No ping backs again… I knew because my husband told me!! Hahaaa. 😊😊😊 I’m hoarding awards, gotta release them all. Soonish!
