My apologies for the lateness of this posting. I had a busy, tiring weekend and by the time we got home yesterday all I wanted to do was nothing. So I coloured in my colouring book whilst listening to CBC radio.
How did it get to be the last full week of October? This whacky weather doesn’t feel like early October. Today, for instance, the temperature will reach 17°C, or xx° in Fahrenheit speak. That just ain’t right. Way, way back in my early years, we had to design our Hallowe’en costumes to accommodate a winter jacket.
I do appreciate the extended spate of warm weather given that our bedroom is Mum’s old house is unheated. I’m not looking forward to chilly sheets. Too bad my hot water bottle is in a box somewhere in the storage unit.
But it doesn’t feel like autumn so that’s my whine for today. For which I feel conflicted. See above.
In other news, we spent the weekend with friends and we disassembled the extra roof truss system. And we did it in one day!!! (Thank you to Ron for his knowledge and labour. And thank you to Janet for the excellent picnic lunch.) I think we recovered enough lumber to frame out the garden shed and the chicken coop.
Here I am wielding a power tool – a dangerous prospect.
And here’s a photo of the house progress. I love the colour more and more every time I see it.
What did you get up to on the weekend?
P.S. I still haven’t updated my newsletter sign-up page. But I’ll be doing it soon so this might be your last chance to use the old, boring page.
