Things are normally so calm and uneventful around here, that when there are things going on, it tends to make me a bit crazy (or should I say “crazier”?).
Last week Vince took off on Thursday and Friday so that meant multiple trips to Home Depot. The solar panel guys were here most of the day Thursday.
Monday the painters got started. We knew it would take them at least four days, probably five, to get the outside stuff painted (trim, porches, well house, doors). It’s a husband/wife team doing the painting and she comes inside to go to the restroom so I feel like I need to hang around inside the house in case she has to come in and Speck may not be so friendly. He can’t hear but if he sees them, he barks . . non-stop!
Yesterday the guy from the electric company came to do the final inspection and approve changing out the meter. Friday, the lumber company is delivering the remaining lumber for the new coop and to form up the foundation for the greenhouse. Saturday, the carpenters arrive to start their part of the new coop.
I’m ready for “normal”. I’m ready to spend my days alone without seeing anyone. Don’t get me wrong . . the painting needed to be done, the chicken coop needs to be built, the inspection had to take place in order to get the solar panels permanently hooked up. It seems like a whole lot happening at once . . especially when I’m so used to never seeing anyone around here.
