I tried something new on the weekend and ended up with an Atomic Sunrise and Goosebumps. No, those are not new cocktail ideas…although they could be, I will have to think on those a spell.
Anyway, back to my new adventures.

Now that we have downsized to condo life, planning and planting my seeds for this years garden came with a bit of a dilemma.
