I came home from work today to find six men on my roof wielding shingles and air compressor hammers. It was so noisy inside that I left to go shopping for a while. I thought they would leave around 5:00 p.m. When I got home shortly after 5 p.m., they were still up there. I tried to sit out on the deck and read a book, but that air compressor was sitting out there, too. Every few seconds it would make a loud noise as they nailed.
I asked them how long they were going to work and one of them said, "Until it's done."
"Are you really going to do the whole roof in one day?" I asked.
"It looks like it." They are men of few words.
I expressed my sympathy for their long work day and went inside. Call me selfish, but really I was most sympathetic to my having to listen to the dreadful noise for a few more hours.
I holed up in my computer room and turned on the television which did little to muffle the sounds from above.
A few minutes ago I realized that it was silent for longer than sixty seconds. I looked out the window and they were just pulling out of the driveway.
Ah, blissful silence!
Look way up near the top of this tree.
Can you see the nest?
I zoomed in so you can see it better.
It's a humongous bee's nest! Thank goodness it's way up high so nobody can bump into it.
Yesterday I finished this pillow and put it out on the deck glider.
While I was sitting out there looking around I spotted something new in my little garden by the garage.
It took me a moment to realize that these are 'Green Star' gladiolus that I planted on Easter Sunday. I am just thrilled that they are going to bloom. I had completely forgotten that I planted them. The flower itself will be green. Can't wait to show you a picture.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
