October’s End Weekend Coffee Share 10-28-18

Pink-tober Weekend Coffee Share 9-29-18

Good morning, Everyone. Coffee smells really good on this crisp morning. It is suddenly autumn and we had been drenched this past week. Lawn mowing may have to wait another day. The garden is petering out. The tomatoes seem to be done. Not even a hopeful green tomato hang from a spindly vine. The peppers… Continue reading Pink-tober Weekend Coffee Share 9-29-18
