~escaping the vortex~

Shaken. Stirred. Smothered. It has been a bit of a noodle; this month of March. Wait. Add in February, too. Year in, Year out, these months test me.

Building that bunker~

SOOOO… my husband wants a bunker. Yes. Even as we live in Florida and his rather elaborate blueprints feature underground assemblages. He is animate this time, and frankly, I am quite unsure how to feel about it. The man has always wanted something similar since he prefers anything ‘off the grid’, protective, and apparently without… Continue reading Building that bunker~
