You would think the dogs might be more perturbed about seeing feet right outside the window – especially on the second floor! But on day four of workmen crawling all over the house and hammering away, they are pretty blasé.

Me? I was about to go nuts:
Bang! Bang! Bang!

Yes, the old house finally got a new roof. They had to take off three layers of asphalt shingles and the original(?) wood-shake roof – all the way back down to the joists. It was looking pretty ratty, and last summer's hail finally did it in. That's actually a good thing, since insurance then covers most of the cost.

It's also a good thing that it was finished yesterday, since this is what I woke up today:
Ah yes, springtime in the Rockies!


  1. It's a good thing that the roof work is done. I hope you get to enjoy nice spring weather too!
    Nice flower, pretty color!

  2. Thanks, Blue! Spring is slipping away quickly here. I think we're done with the snow, at least.
