Under the Dome

Oh! I just realized in my updating Goodreads this morning I forgot to review this one. Not relevant to this post, though, which is really more about my confusion with the show. I started this off as an email to Sharon, and decided just to make it a blog post …

Good clean fun

I’ve spent the last three days… two days? This is day three, and I’ve already started this morning before writing this up…. so almost three days up to my armpits in soap. Here’s where I was: “I have a lot of soap fragrances. Some I use a lot. Some it …

Last week was yarn week….
