If only this weekend was going to look like this. Not so much. It’s supposed to be rainy and stormy but warm, so honestly I’ll take it. Craig and I are recording Monday’s podcast episode today responding to your assumptions about us (and the animals) should be good for a laugh. There will be two new episodes going live with lots of updates about the search for another fixer upper and other projects at the Cozy Ranch. Wishing all of you a great weekend. Happy Easter.
