House repair update

Finally got some photos of the further progress of the repair /residing work that was started in November. As you recall, (you do don't you?), the rafter ends were exposed. I decided to close them in and stapled hardware cloth to the opening above the siding to keep critters OUT of the attic space over my sewing room. There is still a small amount of work to finish the trim on the east side, caulking, window trim, etc. then the painting can proceed.

so cheerful

oh to be young again..

the azaleas are blooming too--what??
The weather has remained glorious all week and many things are blooming and some perennials are coming up. A few of the ferns have sent up new growth, but the Mayapples haven't shown themselves---weird. There are several shrubs that I don't know the "real" name for, but we called them bride's bouquet when I was a kid. Huge bushes of these plants grew at my father's TV repair shop--long gone now except in my favorite memories. My sister and I would gather armloads of the flowering branches and play wedding. Like I said, we were children and full of fantasies. When ever these shrubs bloom, I think back to those carefree days and have happy thoughts.

Your positive outlook towards the whole thing is incredible, Marilyn. I guess that thinking can help anyone go through the burdensome phase of house repairs and renovation. It’s good to see that everything is going well with regard to the work and the weather. Anyways, keep those happy thoughts flowing!
