As you have a gander at this “exotic” selection of jerky at a shop in Lahaska, PA, I want to again wish everyone a happy and healthy 2019! We will be taking a break from daily posting for the next month or two. Just like for my YouTube series, the dead of winter has always…

Our gingerbread “Hexen Haus” from Trader Joe’s completed just in time!
Can’t have “hugge” without fire! What a relaxing night it was. (By the way, the cat isn’t real…)
