So Summer Project #1 is finally done – our new roof is in place. Woohoo!
Roofing means lots of noise, lots of strange workmen, and one very ruffled Havachon.
A very ruffled Havachon means lots of barking, racing around, and whining.
It’s the whining that I can’t stand. 😦
I do have to say, though, that Daisy calmed down after the first ten torturous minutes each day. Well, she calmed down to the point where she didn’t have to bark constantly – she still sat at attention, trotted around trying to locate the source of each BANG and went berserk when she saw workmen climbing up ladders or walking past windows. But hey, at least I didn’t have to endure 10 hours a day of nonstop barking!
These roofers started at 7 AM and worked until 5 PM for three days straight, including Saturday. So much for a sleep-in on the weekend!
Fortunately, the weather was with us. No rain, and the severe heat of temperatures in excess of 100° was replaced by temps in the low 90s. Believe it or not, that actually seemed like a relief!
It was interesting to see that even roofers have become aware of the dangers of sun exposure – they all wore long pants,
long-sleeved shirts, and wide-brimmed hats! Gone are the good ol’ days of shorts-wearing, shirtless workmen with muscles glistening in the sun LOL!
Daisy missed all of her daytime naps; needless to say, she was pooped from lack of sleep and having her inner watchdog cued up every second of every day.
Summer Project #2 – complete kitchen makeover!
