Hello, Neighbors!

    By on March 2, 2016

    Hope everyone is as glad as I am about that darn rain being gone. Basement flooded 3 days in a row and I was not alone, many others in same situation.

    Now, as I sit here finishing this column, all I hear is things flying and rolling around in this wind, very windy.

    Have been undergoing some renovation the past couple of weeks. Getting new (much needed) bathroom, so house is a big mess everywhere. But even with all the mess, it will be worth it when done. Almost there.

    Lots of changes happening at Bayside Grocery also. They are putting in a new deli and few other things. Will be great when finished.

    Attended a Paint and Sip party at Kristine’s yesterday with a bunch of fun ladies and thanks to Sandra Dowie’s great instructions, we all ended up with a nice painting. This is the second time I have gone and have had a great time at both. Amazes me how we actually end up with a nice painting when we finish. Thanks Sandra.
