The roofers have been working steadily...
...gathering the shingles as they arrive on the crane and scattering them on top of the garage roofs like sprinkles on a cupcake.
...to the shouting, the music, and the hammering. Doesn't seem to bother her when it is farther away, but she pays attention...well, when she isn't snoozing. LOL!
They seemed to be randomly skipping around to different garage roofs.
Working away every day. We've had no rain.
They finish one...
...and move on down the way to another one...skipping over a few.
Me...I've been puttering away every day. Got the art table cleared off...
...quite a few things moved around in the bookcase next to the craft table...
...and even got everything off the craft table that needed to be removed. Down to specific project stuff, now--tada! Been over a month since I could call all the surfaces in this room my own again--LOL! (I'm ignoring the bedroom for now.)
As I cleaned, the roofers skipped way down to the far end of the garages...
...to choose a couple more to start on.
Yesterday I walked some paperwork down to the office. (For some reason, every two years they need me to swear in writing that I am not a student.) So, I asked about the roofers and why they are skipping half the garages. Found out that it was the insurance company that decided which garages had suffered wind damage to the shingles and they were only re-doing those particular garages. Okay. That makes sense. Mine wasn't one of them...and I am glad of that, I guess. I had no leaking and hope I won't have any in the future, either. Means they'll be finished faster, too. ;)
Then Caroline came over to clean yesterday afternoon. Right as she got started the UPS man arrived with a really big box!! I was so excited! Caroline helped me open the box later as I told her the story. When I was talking on my blog about my herbs Terah (Cowgirl Red) asked me in the comments if I had a dehydrator. Nope. She said she had one she never uses and she'd mail it to me as a gift!! Wow!!!
This just blows my mind!
Now I will have to read the instruction booklet to find out how to dry my herbs...and other stuff, too! ;)
Thanks so very, very much, Terah!!
People like you restore my faith in humanity!!
Am feeling overwhelmed with gratitude.
I just have to say that I have met the most wonderful bloggers! As people, you are shining examples of kindness, heart, talent, honesty, optimism, joy, perseverance, empathy, silliness, generosity, compassion...
brings tears to my eyes.
You lift my days.
I am proud to know you all!!
