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.
Which we did not enjoy al fresco.
Until my next update, I remain, your tired correspondent.
