More Snow, a Dog’s Haircut, and Too Much Baking

Posted by mrssmythe on April 25, 2020 in Baking, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

Spring continues to prove elusive here in western Massachusetts. We’ve had snow twice since my last post. Granted, the second time, it was simultaneously sunny. So strange.

More Backyard Birds, More Crochet, and a Bit of Spring
