Hot Water Cylinder Got Changed


Today was the day…

The guesthouse hot water cylinder got changed. The plumber stayed the entire day until he finally got the job done. The old cylinder went home with him. It doesn’t look it but it was a real wreck.

Meanwhile, with that job being done upstairs, downstairs Courage had a project of his own. He sanded down the floor in the bedroom…

And gave it a coat of varnish.

What a difference! It will be perfect for the next (family) guests coming on Thursday.

The other day, I asked to join a Stellenbosch Community Facebook Group that has 15 thousand members. They asked if I lived in Stellenbosch and if not I had to explain why I would want to join their group. I explained that I was new to Airbnb and of the 4 guests we had, 2 were from Stellenbosch and I figured others would also want to visit Fish Hoek. They approved my request and so I posted the link to our AirBnb page to their group. Hopefully, that will generate some traffic and maybe even a booking.

This morning there were showers on and off. We decided not to repeat the performance of yesterday morning, but did walk down to do some shopping. When we came out of the shop it was pouring down! We bought two umbrellas from the Crazy Store and walked home with those as protection. Yesterday when we walked up Echo steps on our way home, it was raining so hard water was pouring down the steps – it literally was a waterfall and we had to slosh through it. Fortunately it wasn’t that bad this morning.

Today, I worked just over 6 hours.

Mike has just taken Courage home. Julian will arrive any moment. Dinner is in the hotbox. I love the hotbox. It is so efficient. We have three of them including this double one in the bottom draw of the island unit. They are just so great.

Zephaniah 2:3

Seek the Lord, all who are humble, and follow His commands.

The best is yet to come – we are only passing through.

Keep the smile going.

God bless you.

In His Grip,
