Talking as a form of exercise ๐Ÿ˜€

I went shopping and lived to tell the tale

There is a grocery store near my parents’ place that I occasionally frequent if I’m out that way.

If you can’t handle a dose of my current reality please do yourself a favour and stop reading now. Come back tomorrow when I post about guinea pigs and cats.


I have a spot in the yard where I go sit to feel sorry for myself soak up some sun on the days we are treated to such spring-like weather. Continue reading “Dangling over the edge”
