I have been retired from teaching for one year and am headed back in the fall! I am working hard to reclaim a neglected garden, get rid of clutter, and start a new life with my new partner. My partner is Mollie - an adorable little spaniel. I am looking for all the cheap (oops! thrifty) ways to do things. I do remember things from the early years but there are a lot of new ideas out there and I am eager to learn them. If I can share any of the old ways, I will jump right in.
