He’s back! – Broken-hearted window contractor guy is back. For anyone not following my kitchen saga, the hold up for finishing the kitchen is the window over the sink which was ordered last July but never came in. The real worry came when the contractor’s wife left him. He did not take it well. You can read about it here. He found a window and will install in the next week or two. Stand by for HUGE snowstorm.
Consuming life – We are in week 10 of our kitchen project. Some things went smooth and some didn’t. When I worked I was away from any house construction project during the day. It was an opportunity to focus on something else. Now that I’m retired I’m living in the chaos and worry about everything. It’s very different and I will take that into consideration in the future. (This is my last new kitchen though!) It has affected my blogging. I’m not as alert to see what stupid people are doing around me! The pandemic hasn’t helped that either, keeping me cooped up most of the time. And the frigid temperatures!
The deep freeze – Our weather has taken a turn for the bitter cold with temperatures in the teens (Fahrenheit). Last spring we had two doe give birth. One had twins and the other was a single. All summer we’ve watched the two moms with their three kids romp in the fields around us. They stay together. I hadn’t seen them for a while. On Friday they were romping in my back yard. I wanted to go out and ask how they have been but well…they are deer. I’m always amazed at how nature takes care of the critters in this bitter cold.
Speaking of critters – The beloved husband saw something going on outside our bedroom window as we went to bed. It was a fox leaping into the air and dancing around. It turns out he caught a mouse. He entertained us for a while with his antics. I felt sorry for the mouse but I have to remember it’s the circle of life.
Starbucks – One of the things I’ve like about Starbucks is that it is a place you can grab a coffee and talk to a friend. Many people bring their laptops and work. They call it the café. This past week they closed down inside eating and drinking again. Chairs and tables were stacked against the wall. So sad.
So how was your week?
