The past couple of days we have been putting new shingles on our roof. As you probably know from this post, I hate heights! So being up on the roof has not been a lot of fun for me. I also can't stand to sit back and watch other people work, so I swallowed my fear and climbed that scary ladder. :~)
If my 79 year old Dad could get up there and help, then so could I. Our oldest son was also there to help. The heights don't scare him at all. He was just working out there right on the edge with me waaaaaay back from the edge, telling him to be careful. Anyway, we are almost done. But, I didn't order enough shingles so we still have about 2/3 of the back side to finish. I will be ordering more shingles today. Redoing and updating the outside of our house is almost complete. We put on new vinyl siding and replaced the windows 3 years ago. Now the new shingles. I noticed after looking closely at this picture, that I had better give the patio a new coat of stain too. Well, maybe I can talk Randy into doing that, I would rather be quilting!!!! :~)
Ethan and I are going to be spending the day at the zoo, celebrating his upcoming 8th birthday.
Thanks for visiting with me in my little corner of the world.
Hugs & Stitches, Julia
