    Taking in as much of this sunshine as I can.  Makes it easy to do a walk when the sky is blue :-).

    We moved into our home almost 5 months ago, our garage has become a storage area.  My challenge is to get the rest of the clutter out so that I can start parking my cars in there by Monday.  Goodwill and Salvation Army will be the recipients of some fun items.
