Hello. Remember me? Yeah, I’ve been hiding. Behind a desk in a cubicle, that is. It’s a long ways away from that garden and kitchen renovation work, let me tell you. But a gal’s gotta do what she’s gotta do. And even though I’m definitely a “do it yourself” kinda gal, there are some repairs and renovations slowly starting to pop up that I’m not going to touch, like the roof.
