Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a mainly organized day; for it being warm at 31C without wind, after last night’s hefty storm; for preparing for my client meeting this afternoon; for our garage door getting the day wrong, refusing to close today, usually playing up on Saturdays; for ‘fortunately’ forgetting my cellphone at home, having to return from Gardens to fetch it, to find out that Henry was unable to get the garage door to close, so Ms Organizer Chris jumped onto my phone, found the garage door guy recommended by Nicholas Fjord via Gary Peterson, giving us amazing service to get the garage door Continue reading →
