Covid Work Life Boundaries

It’s hard to believe we are in October. In some ways this year seems to have dragged, and yet I wonder where the time has gone?

The Power of Nature

I’m not a green finger and gardening generally is not my thing. But… I do love the majestic beauty of a sunflower under the clear blue sky in summer.
