Updates From The Middle Of Nowhere

160 EpisodesProduced by LierenWebsite

A podcast about whatever is on my mind. I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, occasional gardener, all around eclectic woman, and you never know what's going to be on my mind. :-) I live in rural Central Virginia, hence the title.
