Bedroom Plants – Same old story, I liked the light.

Utility room shelving unit finally fitted in place – It’s taken a long time to get this shelving unit made and finished, mainly because of problems with the paint. I’m glad it is now installed. However, there’s still more to do in this room before it is finished.

I obviously realized my hat was in need of some TLC. It’s looking a whole lot better now. Two-minute read

Looking back (east) along the Pilot Trail – This section of the trail doesn’t get a huge amount of traffic, and as you can see, the trail is not that easy to spot. It’s there though, winding between the brush on the right of the frame.

One, two, three. Testing, testing – I’m doing my first church service broadcast in almost a year tomorrow. Time to check everything still works.
