This has indeed been a hectic week at our little house in the woods. Last Sunday, after the long drive to see Drake, I felt I could’ve slept for a week but, unfortunately, we didn’t have that luxury on Monday morning. We got moving early and waited for the roofer to show up, plus Ken was supposed to start our new deck that day as well. We hoped that our new dining room table was going to be delivered early this week. I also hoped to hear from the roofer for Nonnie’s house. Oh, we had lots of plans last Monday morning!
Yeah, good intentions and all that! Ken showed up to start the deck and he and his crew have been working on it all week. It’s coming along nicely. Unfortunately, our roofer couldn’t get the roofing tiles delivered until Wednesday and, with the rain coming in this weekend, they opted to wait until next Monday to start tearing off the old roof. That seemed reasonable until tonight when I heard that we might get winter precipitation and a freezing temperature on Monday. Hmmm, I just don’t think they will start the job on Monday but who knows about later next week? They said they needed three days to get the job done.
The roofer for Nonnie’s house is ready to start working on her house. Guess when they want to start? You guessed it … Monday! Oh, well. It is December and Texas weather can change drastically minute by minute so who knows when they will start that job. They only wanted two days to get that roof done.
As for the furniture, that is set up to be delivered next Wednesday. I am SO looking forward to that! We have thoroughly cleaned the floor and rearranged the furniture in anticipation. Of course, now that the floor looks so good, the wainscoting looks crappy. I guess this weekend, while the weather is bad, I’ll use the Old English to really spruce up the wainscoting. Then I’ll probably have to do the door into the kitchen so it matches the wainscoting. Well, if you do the door, then the kitchen cabinets will really look dingy. Then we’ll just have to rearrange the office/computer room so it looks a little nicer. The office leads into the living room. Ok, ok! We have a lot of work to get done this weekend! I’d better get moving!
