Lovely Saturday

It's too cold for diving and swimming anyway.

This past Saturday we decided against going on a thrifting round, which is what we usually do on a Saturday. When my husband asked what I felt like doing that day, I said, “Going to Goderich and get two dozen butter tarts!” and to which he said, “That’s what I’m thinking, too!” We are so…… Continue reading Lovely Saturday

Picture This
