What A Glorious Day...

It was 36 degrees out and just beautiful out!!

I've been busy trying to get everything done so I could get my house refinanced. Pouring over garden seed catalogs...ever the green thumb ya know! Also, have wonderful news. The ICAA coordinator contacted me to get the ball rolling for Rusk county to start a grow-a-row program. I am so excited they have embraced it! It will send out such a positive message to our local community as well as surrounding communities as well! Think of a rain shower in spring and each one of us has an opportunity to be one of those little rain drops!
