B, we do sometimes get a little bit of snow up in the Mount Lofty Hills, but nothing like Mount Buller and Mount Hotham in Victoria

There is not enough to ski here though and no ski resorts

That would be just perfect for me.

A change of seasons with no shoveling involved!

I don't think I could handle skiing on the 4th of July!

It all seems so strange to me!

Well I may actually do something useful today. I am about to head off to an 84 yo womans house to help her weed her garden. But we may chuck that idea and go help a local Veterans organization start their gardens.

It's darn beautiful here today.
I'm not sure what I'm doing first.
Something...
Maybe I'll brush hog the back and enjoy part of the day just sitting on the tractor.

That's a lot of cakes! Wow.

I'm just dinking around. Cleaned out the battery (junk) drawer, found some batteries dating back to 2003 that are still good. Will recycle the ones that leaked.

My grandson and I just got back from some garage sales. Got some great cookbooks for me, from 25 to 50 cents apiece and some action figures for Josh. Then we went to Wendy's for lunch. It was a fun morning.
