Back to My Messy Life
The re-siding project moves into the fourth week. The constant
pounding continues. Nail guns. Hammers. Saws. Men walking around everywhere
outside. This makes for interesting showering/dressing situations. Since we live
in the middle of a forest, with no close-by neighbors, we have few curtains or
shades. Usually this isn't a problem as even Kareem Abdul-Jabbar isn't tall
enough to see into our bathroom window, but dudes on scaffolding can.
The work crew are a fine flock of fellows, but I am tired of the pounding. Tired
of the dust. Tired of a porta-potty in our garden.
One flashback to Leo's birthday:
Lisa and Lenny gave Leo a Hape Contemporary All-Season 3-Story Dollhouse
for his birthday. It is made of wood and came
fully-furnished - it even has a toilet. The roof has
(pretend) solar panels and is reversible to a snow scene
for winter! Clever. Angela gave Leo all sorts of
accessories - and a multi-generational family - for the
house. Leo really loves his playhouse.
But boys will be boys... and Leo turned it into a barn straight-away.
Here are photos of our lovely home:
Don't be jealous.
Hardie Plank is such a nice "baby-poop" yellow, don't you think?
No kidding: the workers banged so hard on the den wall, my task lamp
plug bounced right out of the wall socket.
It was too hot to cook, so I made a big
Greek Salad for
Which we did not enjoy al fresco.
Until my next update, I remain, your tired correspondent.
