Many of you may remember from my posts on the message boards that we had a storm come through here that left us with some real bad damage in late February. We totally lost our shed, and many of the shingles came off our roof. We got temporary repairs done and waited for the insurance's roof adjuster. (They had already sent someone about the shed, but she couldn't do the roof.) I finally got tired of waiting, took pictures, got estimates, and went the insurance office myself.
Well... finally, eight weeks later we are getting our new roof. It took 2 weeks to get the insurance money and get the contractor here to sign a contract. He had so many jobs, and the weather just wasn't being nice. When I walked out the door this morning to go for my walk, he and his team were outside waiting for us to wake up. My husband, bless is heart, had just got out of the bed.
So by tomorrow night, I should have a completely new metal roof. Yeah! No more shingles to blow off the house and cause yet another leak.
On another note...
I posted 4 new pics to my gallery today. One is a picture of an old pair of my pants and the newest pair that I just bought. I can really see a big difference in my clothes even if I don't see it on the scales. The other pictures are of some of the knitting work that I have been doing the last few months.
