A Winter Laundry List

Many wonder what on earth I do in the winter time. I smile when people say, “Oh, this must be your down time.” I may not be in the midst of spring and fall hustle and bustle, but there is still plenty to keep me busy; more than I can possibly complete in our (relatively short) “down” time.
