Happy New Year 2015
New Years eve we brought in the New Year 2015 with a church service and fireworks at midnight. The church was packed and we had a band that played church songs and lots of people in the community came to hang out to wait until midnight. The firework show brought in the new year and everyone went home at 1 a.m. to sleep.
I spent NY Day doing rounds at the hospital and then came home to take decorations down and put them away for another year.
We had some big storms since 2015 began and good rain. There was so much rain one day that the fields between Karoi and Chinhoyi filled to overflowing and blocked the road for several hours so no traffic could get to Harare or the boarder. Cars that tried to pass got swept into fast flowing rivers and a big truck even got swept it was so powerful. Our doctor was trying to go to Harare for a few days and had to come back and try again 3 days later.
The planned remodeling of my kitchen has started. The first part is to expand my pantry and then move my wash sinks and washing machine there. Then we will expand the kitchen. Bob and Rose Coibion from Roseville, CA are coming in February with 2 of their grandchildren to finish it off with cabinets and a new floor. Can't wait! It will be nice to have a bigger and more efficient kitchen for cooking for all our visitors!
