Weekly Publisher Note ๐ŸŒฆโ˜”๏ธ April 16-22, 2024

Hello Friends โ˜”๏ธ

What a rainy day but you can almost watch the grass turn green can't you? While I would rather have sunshine, we really do need the rain. So, on this rainy day we ran to the garden center to pick up fertilizer to finish up the spring yard work. Yesterday we got the dog patches raked up and new grass seed down so hopefully the rain will speed the process up. 

"A guarantee of rain always comes with a promise of sun, in weather, and in life."
