Monday musings: Handmade soap and good, clean fun

PeoniesIt’s been another busy week on Emmet Street. I’ve been ecstatic that it’s finally peony season in my garden and, as you can see from the picture above, have finally gotten the chance to bring those beauties indoors.

Christine’s been busy planting her vegetable garden. She finally had time to plant her tomato plants and is looking forward to trying some new recipes when the harvest begins.
