Being the gluttons for punishment that we are - or so it seems - another home construction project is underway. First to come down in the demo was the roof,then the walls. We're keeping the back wall, and just adding to it...

On the 4th of July my dad fell off his bike,hitting his head,causing a subdural hematoma.

Thankfully, my dad is now in physical rehab, having survived seizuresand come back from his brain's time out.
Still, surgery lies ahead, to drain away the bloodand pressure that remains.
Your healing thoughts and prayers brought renewed life to Zana.It's truly been amazin [..]

This is probablymy favorite kind of weather!
Misty, foggy, hushed...
Mysterious, magical, silvery,gray.
