When I had the brilliant idea to include a “monthly hobby update” on the blog, I certainly thought I’d have more on which to update. Sigh. I have definitely spent way more time following current events than I used to. Maybe that needs to count as a new hobby?

The master bathroom project we thought would be scrapped, may be back up to the top of the “to do” list as we’re starting to research supplies.
This about sums up the past month. The no sugar thing has definitely put a cramp in my baking…
