The roof is, for the winter at least, finished.
It's a deeply satisfying realization that we don't have to worry about the drippy leaks or amount of heat pouring out into the dark nights.
It wasn't a simple labor, nor was the price in work, stress or money easy to take in the moment. If it weren't for friends and family who helped, it wouldn't be even a project finished, or for that matter, a thing began. Seriously. And that makes it even more gratifying. Besides, it's so nice to be warm and dry.
'Twas a cold morning. It got down to nine degrees Fahrenheit as the sun came up, so I thought I'd go out and reacquaint myself with the temperature of things to come. Moshe was happy about the turn of events; then again, he's always happy when I take him out and about.










He's been part of our family for almost ten years now. Just a big, half-blind old puppy, really.

Kia ora Adam,
It warms me to think of you and yours warm, safe, and cozy in that lovely looking abode.
Cheers,

Isn't it great for the help of family and friends we enjoy the warmth of our homes. It seems we get warm twice once in the heart for the help and on the outside for the work. It somehow makes the abode all the more cozy somehow. . .

Some fine, wintry scenes with a faithful, old companion.
Glad about the roof, sorry we couldn't assist.

Stay warm,
