    Went crazy in the house today!!! Cleaned up outside. Mulched our douglas fir that I like to call West (one of his branches point W). Did some research towards different things. I would love to get an electric bike!!! >:)  Seafood is unsafe pretty much everywhere haha.  Last day of the challenge, and it was definitely a lot of fun trying to do all the challenges. I gotta work on my gratitude though. And walking. No wonder I'm so jiggly....
