Well, hello to you all from another rainy day in Grenada. I am still wondering where dry season is but don't mind the rain as long as I have something to keep me entertained in the house. Lately I have had so many projects that I should be working on & so I have been loving this rainy weather lately!!!
Well, my husband is becoming quite the master at whatever task I put him to. :) Whether that means making me all kinds of wonderful things out of old pallets, turning closets into changing tables, & his newest venture....spear fishing!!!!! Last week he came home with this beauty!!! Well, if you can call a slimy octopus beautiful (otherwise known as calamari)!!! So, know we have to learn how to fix this baby up to make it edible....anyone want to come and be a guinea pig?? Here she is in all her glory......
Anyway, on to other things.....with April comes breezes....with breezes comes kites....with kites comes the constant sound of "singing"... :) Friday was the last day of trimester for the schools here in Grenada, leading into a two week vacation & so Friday was kite day. The students and teachers all headed out to St. David's point. The students with their kites & the teachers with their scissors & an extra bit of patience. A large part of their job is untangling string out of briars & hoisting kites into the heavy breeze. Here are just a few pics of that day.........

And now for the pallet shelf. Well, I've mentioned before my love for old pallets cuz they are free & they make some pretty great signs, shelves, etc. And so this is my latest pallet makeover....

Well, that is all for today.... I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!
