On Hiatus

Just a quick note to let y'all know that I won't be blogging for about a month. Got the opportunity to travel recently and I'm taking it!! Shoot, I need a break!

Today, I worked at my house from 8am til 7pm (with a one hour break for lunch) finishing up the gutting. My mom worked from 10am to almost 5pm!! We had to remove nails, remove drywall from the bathroom and other overlooked areas, and even gain access to the attic (an attic fan blocks the entrance). I also spent some time TRYING to connect a downspout to the gutter... alas, no success. I'm pretty sure I need a soldering tool and a smaller pair of metal snips or a hacksaw. Anyway, I returned home exhausted, FILTHY, and in pain. Guess what, y'all? Construction (or deconstruction, in my case) work is HARD!!

So I'm ready for this much needed break. When I return, I'll be diving right back into work... and it'll be even HOTTER.

Well, I hope that you have a great break! A part of me is still smiling and happy to see just how versatile you are, my dear old friend. Who would have thought that you would be trying to attach aspout to a gutter? But you have always proven that with hard work everything is possible and that one can do it if they want to and you do! Have a great vacation. Hopefully I will be down there to join you in a couple of weeks.
Ciao Bella!

Go for it Miss Jenga!
I hope you smile.
For I am sure you will smile harder when your house is finished.
Much Love
