Given all of the snow that has fallen, please make sure that you have a second exit from your house. It took me a while, but I shoveled a path to the side door through the hip deep snow.

Hopefully it won't be necessary, but if there's an emergency, it probably would be useful to have a secondary exit.

Thanks to [personal profile] omly, Jen, PeterO, and David the Carpenter, we got the first phase of the concrete floor poured.

It took about 3 1/2 hours to get the concrete into place and leveled. Then David went back to work to smooth the concrete.

Next week (weather dependent) we'll do the middle section of the floor (the other section of the floor was done about 14 years ago).

The roofer invasion continues. Today, they started working on the south facing roof.

The supply truck arrived an hour before the roofers. Fortunately, I knew where the roofers wanted him to put the stuff.

Edit: Make that 1.5 hours before the roofers.

Last Fall I bought a popup gazebo from Target and a hammock with a frame from someone on Craigslist.

I didn't intend to use them together, but today we setup them up. Laying in the hammock with Ann in the shade of the trees and gazebo is quite nice.

But there's a small problem... )

  Around this house, nothing is ever simple.

All I wanted to do was move a pile of wood... )
 Now with the chair cleared off, and in a new location, I was finally ready to move the pile of wood to its new location.
