I am challenging you and or your family members to learn something new in the next couple of months. Be it sewing, cooking, baking, learning to can or can something you haven't before, knitting, crocheting, learning to fix something in the house, handling power tools, changing the oil in the car or something you have always wanted to learn.
Dave will be home tonight some where around 10 or after. I know he is exhausted. They took turns driving while the other grabbed some sleep in the passenger side of the truck. So much for stopping at a rest stop to get some rest if they needed it.
