February 21, 2020

When I was packing for the trip to Miami a couple of weeks ago (you can see the photos from the trip here), I realized how worn out many of my shoes looked.

We recently had guests over to our home. We got the call about 15 minutes before they arrived. While waiting for our friends, I found myself doing the flight of the bumble bee.
