Buffalo, Sledding, and The Best of 2021 – The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where we had a great week off. My daughters and I did some sledding and played with new toys. I read a great book titled American Buffalo and started reading a second one, Where the Deer and the Antelope Play. I also had some time to work on a couple of projects that I hope to unveil in January. All in all, it was a pretty good week. I hope that you had a great week as well.
