Zimbabweans Out, Austrians In


Today was the day…

That was super busy in the morning and relaxing in the afternoon.  The Austrians were due to arrive at 11am. The Zimbabweans were leaving at 10am. One hour to turn the Little Lookout around.

Mike and I left for the shops at 8:45am. We got what was needed and came home via first OK furniture and then Wakefords to look at fridges. Wakefords was the winner. Meantime, we got a message from the Zimbabweans to say they were leaving. Mike dropped me at home and then returned to make the payment.  I got stuck into the Little Lookout and did the clean. With payment made to Wakefords for the new fridge and the Little Lookout back up to scratch, Mike got the call, the fridge had arrived! That got unpacked into the cottage for the Koreans. Finally, at 10:45am, Mike and I had breakfast. As we were finishing up, Courage called us. The Austrians had arrived.

Yip, it was that busy.

At about 11:45am, we walked to Fish Hoek Traffic department to pick up our driver’s licences. we got there at about 12:05 and left at 12:12pm. Pretty impressive. No waiting around. Then we shopped for dinner and walked home.

The prevailing South Easter has arrived. It’s blowing the predicted gales. The Cape Doctor is required to blow away any smog and (apparently) ensures good rains for the northern summer rainfall regions.

So Courage came today to complete the redefinition of the steps leading to our patio. He’s done a great job. By Monday, they’ll be dry and we will be able to walk on them. In the meantime, we step of the planks of wood.

From Monday he can start building up the wall and when that’s done, he can start working on the paving. We are looking forward to having a paved entrance patio. This is a good photo to have, because the front part will change dramatically in the next few weeks.

Psalm 147:11

The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy.

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

Keep the smile going.

God bless you.

In His Grip,
