Well...This Is A First For Me...The Roof Goes On...

I can't read, focus or remotely concentrate. I am on edge from 7:00 until 5:00.

I can relax from 10:00 until 10:30...break time...today we had amazing doughnuts from a local orchard and milk...

Then more pounding until 1:00...we have lunch for an hour...I say "we" but I am not bothering the boys at all today...there is stuff flying everywhere and am staying in the house. Our house is literally three stories and at any given time I saw a face in every window...I was upstairs at the top of our stairs and there was a face in the window at the tippy top of our entry way...I don't even know what he was standing on...he appeared to be floating. And I looked out of a window over our vaulted sunroom and Rubin...my favorite right now...was walking down the roof...without holding on to anything...walking straight down a roof...

I found a hidey hole spot for me in one upstairs bathroom...I fed Lucy tuna so that she would sleep...if she is awake she just looks up and cries...the entire downstairs was dark for two hours...they covered all the windows while more old shingles were ripped out...that is the really noisy part...yikes!

I can almost stand the nailing part...almost!

I wanted to tell you about this book that I am trying to finish...it's so good but I can't focus enough to finish it now...in a few days...hopefully?




And then I have this...I love this cover...I want to read and I can't!
This is not my normal!


It's quiet now...my head hurts...I hope everyone else is having a lovely Monday!

My poor little angel...she is totally stressed...

  2. I can't even imagine how stressed the constant noise is making you. How much longer will they be?

  3. We're going to be having our roof redone in a few weeks - not looking forward to it - I hope my husband will be home, because I plan to disappear, lol! If not, I'll be looking for a hidey hole spot myself :)

  4. You will feel such peace when the noise stops! Then you will probably walk around, blissfully luxuriating in the silence....

    Lucy does look stressed...

    And those books are gorgeous. Enjoy!

  5. The Anniversary Waltz looks great! Hope you can read in peace soon! I always find it amazing how roofers can walk around like it is no big deal! Enjoy your hidey hole.
