Roof work and curlicues

The roofer we hired was here on Tuesday and spent about four hours working on our repair. He said that he's not sure what he did will work, but he didn't want to do the larger, more expensive job until after he tried it. Baby steps. We're hopeful. Now we need some hard rain to test it, but I'm in no hurry for that given all the rain we've had this year.

Last season's dried vine tendrils with this year's new growth. The grapevines are flowering now.

Our weather is still chilly for the season, but we're getting a little sun now. I've got a lot to catch up on outdoors. Yesterday I got the grass cut. The list of chores is long, so I have to pick one or two things to get done today and do them. It always feels good to get something accomplished.

    Hope you get lots of work done today.

  2. I was impressed that you two tackled the freezer project -- you guys are both great at getting chores done!

  3. Getting chores done before Wimbledon would be my problem - if I could see it on my television. I'm just devastated for Rafa.

    I could see those curlicues in a tall glass vase or perhaps a low plate on a table or mantle. They're very interesting.
