When I first get up I check online for a bit and then I guess it is pretty obvious that lately I've been heading for the table next and not the desk--LOL! Karma was patiently waiting for me under the table...where I give her foot rubs. ;)
Wow! This was a great sunrise!
The dark clouds look powerful and majestic...
...surrounded by a golden-orange light.
A couple days ago I got a surprise card and gift from one of the ladies in the Circle Letter group. She just thought since we've had to wait so long that she'd send a fall gift for the heck of it. How sweet!
I will use this tag as a bookmark, of course.
The last I saw the Circle Letter was the end of May. It got waylaid for so long that there were emails trying to find out where it was. One of the ladies had to rush off on a medical emergency (her mother) across the state and the letter was left at home. Perfectly understandable. It is on the way around again, I guess. I made a thank you card and sent one of my laminated bookmarks in return to this sweet lady, Melissa. :)
I've just been puttering about. When I was writing letters at my desk and didn't want Karma lying across the paper, I banished her to the floor. Well, she was crying and flopping herself around dejectedly on the carpet--so I pulled up a chair nearby and she was happy. Well, let's face it...placated.
To later make up for my animal cruelty (in her eyes) I parked the chair right under the TV and entertained her with the mouse cursor. Luckily she has no claws or this wouldn't be good for my screen--LOL!
At dusk I saw the moon looked so full and thought that maybe I could take a picture later...
...in the dark. ROFL!
This is as close as I can get with my camera.
No need to try that again--LOL!
Hey!! Guess what?!
Remember how I was wondering about all those missing shingles on the garage roofs. Well, the roofers showed yesterday with a flatbed full of shingles.
We actually had one sunny day.
The crane noise scares Karma and she apparently immediately remembered how she hated the hammering--LOL!
They piled shingles on that garage right across from my window perch up here...but I didn't see anything wrong with that one from this side?
They piled new shingles on that back garage to the left...
...and then they proceeded to rip off the old shingles on both those smaller garage sections...
...and the garage beyond the one directly in my view.
So I wondered if they are going to replace them all?
When they left yesterday they had already removed all the shingles and tar paper off those three garages and replaced the black tarpaper.
Today is chilly and completely overcast with predictions of rain, but they showed up. They're ripping off more shingles and putting on new ones. I wonder if they will do my garage? Mine is the next one over to the right from that back one peeking out there--straight in back of the one under my window. You'd think with rain looming that they'd work on putting new shingles on instead of ripping more off--but maybe that is too logical. Or maybe they have roofer specialists who only do one thing--LOL! Have to wait and see how it goes.
I've been on day hours--not sleeping very long but pretty well. Then last night I slept nine hours and was only up three times--ahhh! Now we're talking! ;) Regardless, my puttering has been picking up speed since I've been on days again. I forgot to take a picture of the very simple thank you card, but it sure felt good to do a little crafting! :)
I finished the last DVD of Season Six of Supernatural. Now I am finally caught up since back, at least a couple years ago, when Dagan and Leah told me about the series. I've been recording the current new shows (season seven) and can now actually watch and keep up--tada!
I was just thinking how I'd rather hear roofers than that darn dryer flap--ROFL!! ;)
Happy Wednesday!! :):)
