OK, so it’s not that short, but I guess since it followed our short Vermont weekend, it just seems short.
First – the weekend. Even with just slightly more “awake” hours at the cabin than driving hours to get there, it was an excellent weekend. Although it was a very purposeful weekend (we were primarily there for our annual Cabin Association meeting), it wasn’t all work and no play. It was a beautiful Vermont weekend, the meeting went very well, I got to spend the day with all of my siblings and a precious niece, the afternoon with two cousins I hadn’t connected with decades, and a full weekend with one of my sons. I guess the true test of it being a heart-full weekend is that I took very few pictures. But trust me – it was well worth the drive!
Back in Montrose, life and work continued on. Gary finished up some details on the the walkway steps and moved on to the next part of the plan – the ventilation under the building. So even though today was a beautiful day in the neighborhood,
Gary ventured into the crawlspace to begin the process.
Thankfully, he wasn’t in the crawlspace for that long today (that will come later when he’s hooking up the exhaust fans). Most of the day was spent putting in the vents (i.e. cutting holes in the floor). Since he needed me every now and then, I stayed close by and worked on washing windows and doors. Yes, I do do windows. After a spring of concrete dust flying everywhere and sawdust whipping in the wind, it was lovely to seem them (well, the ones I got done anyway) looking shiny and bright. (It almost made me want to come home and wash my windows! Maybe next weekend…..)
So why the short week? Well, Gary will only be working a half day tomorrow and then we will be hitting the road to upstate New York to visit some friends. New places, good friends, and I hear there’s even a hot tub involved. While it might’ve been a (sorta) short week, we certainly are looking forward to a nice lonnnnggg weekend!
