Things I've Done

Here's a list if things I stole from Wolfie's blog. You're supposed to highlight the things on the list you've done. However, I'm a bloggy technophobe, and I can't figure out how to do that.

This was fun to read Terri. By the way, has a very hardy lilac variety if you and Melissa want to plant one. The secret seems to be not to overwater/fertilize. Good luck!
