Euphoria

We awoke to a frosty Sunday morning today! Temperatures dropped over the weekend and it appears we are in for some cooler temperatures this week. I prepared Lexi's bucket to take down and have a little visit with her. I bundled well to ward off the bitter cold so I could spend a little time…
