It’s been another one of those weeks. Deck project got postponed and it’s not about the weather. Contractor is finishing a job he started last fall but all the materials weren’t available. Everything is in now and that work is ahead of our project so the deck is next (hopefully).
The beloved husband’s adult kids live across the country. Today one of them is flying in to rent a truck and transport paintings, family heirlooms and furniture that doesn’t fit here. Flying in, loading truck and taking off on Friday. It’s choreographed with not much leeway for plan changes. We’ve had a clink in the plan which required thinking at 7 a.m. BS (before Starbucks). Looks like it will all work out but there were some scary moments.
With some upcoming landscaping, our underground utility locations were marked. Holly cow! They planted a tree on top of the underground electric cable. We will never be able to grind out those roots (that wasn’t on the work list but it’s good to know). The good news is that the new tree and flower bed can be placed exactly as planned.
We’ve had a sunny, warm week. It’s amazing how good sunshine makes you feel. Even the glitches are less glitchy. It’s easier to roll with the punches. Sunshine makes you glad to be alive. Queue in John Denver’s “Sunshine on my Shoulders!”
