Hello Blogging Buddies.....I thought I'd
try to muster up some energy for a post
to let ya all know what has been going on
with me, this past week. We went to Texas
to replace the roof on the porch of our
house. It was our living room for a long
time, but we weren't using that part of
the house, because we really don't need
that much room now. Anyway, I have
spent more time on the roof the last
week, than I wanted to! I helped with
rafters, nailed decking down, nailed
roofing felt and roofing, used more
roof cement than I ever want to see again!
There was supposed to be a 20% chance
of rain for one day, when we left here on
Friday. Well, on Sunday, after 1/3 of the
roof was missing, we were having lunch
and looked through the door way and it
was raining in my house! It didn't rain
much, though, good thing! I am not going
into the roofing business I can tell ya
that! I had been on the roof for
quite awhile and I went down to get
lunch, or something......We had a tarp
folded back on the peak of the house, that
we had used earlier, because of the rain,
so hubby took it off while I was
down off the roof, and look what
came out from under it! We had been
sitting near that tarp on the edge of the
roof a little bit before that! I was a good
thing that I wasn't up there, because I
probably would have levitated right
off the roof! I hate snakes!!! We had tools
up there and so hubby whacked him with
a crow bar! It is a wonder that he got me
me back up there to work! I told him that
this is the last time I am working on a roof!
I spent several hours on it, just on Thursday.
That is enough for me!
I just looked up some snakes and I think it
was a non poisonous snake, but now he is
just a good snake. Because I always say...
"The only good snake is a dead snake!"
So, this is how I spent my Mother's Day
and the rest of the week! My friend and
neighbor grilled us some burgers and
sausages on Mother's Day, after we quit
for the day and even gave me a nice card
and a couple gifts! She is a sweetie!
I will post a bear tomorrow night....
