Why I Love My Front Porch Swing

After a super long week I crave sitting on my porch swing and mentally taking a mini vacation.  It is my recovery place; a place to reduce my stress and tension, lift my spirits and calm my mind.  I can't do the dishes, fold laundry, sweep the floor, stare at the mess I call home,… Continue reading Why I Love My Front Porch Swing

The only real complication is time... time to prepare and time to chew. It seriously takes more time to chew fresh, raw plants, then it does to chew… Continue reading Veggie Life on the Run
