Time flies…

.

Firstly – we’d like to thank all of you wonderfully kind folks who sent your thoughts, love and support (and $$s!!!) to our Family members who’d been through the trauma of Hurricane Irma…

Silver Linings & Love

What we’ve managed to accomplish this week: (other than those pesky ‘paid’ jobs that one is required to attend to…lol) The timber for the next row of the kitchen shelves has been acquired, and is ready to slot into place.
