They are putting in new windows, doors, and siding on the hovels (condos). The new metal roofs went on last fall. In the process they have removed the front deck, deck roof, and fence. Now to find a home inside for the things I had stored out there. Challenging, but not impossible.
I wanted to see the architect's elevations to get an idea of what it will look like when they finish. Not having a lot of luck with that. According to the workman that is ripping out the decking, the HOA board president has bought close to 15 of the units and wants everything removed from the outside. This so the complex looks uniform and neat. I get that, but as an owner, I would still like to see what the (his) vision is for the complex.
I'm staying in, reading all the books that I had stashed, and painting the inside of the hovel. Lots of crafty things are waiting to be done, and waiting, and waiting.
Willie has been his usual grumpy self, and gives me the stink eye when I turn off his Hallmark movies.
Some of my flowers are starting to bloom in spite of all the rain and hail storms of late.
I'm not meant to be a towne, I'm meant to be in the back of beyond, where I can have family gatherings, a real garden, chickens, a pack of dogs, and a horse or a mule. I'll get back there, it's just taking longer than I thought...
