Been so busy — what with moving home après-flood and a primary election we won by 11 votes (NEVER think your vote won’t count).

As promised, the renaissance of our home will unfold here very soon. Just a little more flood mud to wash away, a few special touches to put in place, and we’ll be ready for company — you!

á bientôt, from my iPhone…Tatie
