By the time we finished the "trim", the nearly full moon had risen and it was time for all of the animals to eat and hit the sack for the night. Killian did not look nearly as good as she does when in the hands of the pros, but she didn't seem to notice. She was eating happily, I suspect, dreaming of Monday which was to bring the beginning of the next change to our little place.
|Well, she's trimmed, at least!|
Monday morning the wood was delivered for the deck we are having built. It is a modest deck which will provide a second exit from our garage apartment. Safety would seem to mandate a second exit for use in the event of fire, but this place has only the long, steep stairs from inside the garage. We bought an emergency escape ladder that can be tossed out the window and used to escape a burning building, but it looks so....umm...SCARY! I think the deck addition and changing the window to a door will be MUCH more reassuring!
Now, everyone knows how kids LOVE to play with the cool equipment. And sure enough, when I took a break from work, going downstairs to see the "action" (when the wood was being delivered) I was able to snap a couple of pictures of the "kids" at play! Of course, there is a ton of work involved in this new deck, not the least of which is creating more driveway. The deck will dual purpose as a carport, so we need a good solid driving and parking surface up to and under it. Joe has spent the past few days spreading the road dirt. Next will be the gravel.

Change... we want it, we fear it, we anticipate it, we embrace it...and things change a little more.
