Monday's Musings

Just a quick post to let you know that I am indeed alive and well.  It's been one of those weeks that makes one happy to move forward.  I won't go into boring details, but here's just a little glimpse into my Friday:

Water main break repair.  Yup, you guessed it - OUR side of the main.

On the bright side, I didn't have anything planted on this side of the house to tear out except....

my glorious burning bush laying exposed in the (almost) 100 degree sun.   The worker asked me if I wanted them to replant it.  Obviously they were suffering from heat stroke.

All's well that ends well, I'm told, and I'm going to call this a happy ending.  The crew at  HJack's did a  professional job, going beyond duty by sprucing up their mess in the neighbor's driveway with new gravel.  It made it a little easier .  It was a FOUR figure undertaking.  We do enjoy the convenience of indoor plumbing, so I guess we have to suck it up, and we're no worse for wear.................

although it may have pushed Keith over the edge temporarily!

I did get to harvest my second picking of green beans before the mayhem began, and they sure were tasty!

There were other things less traumatizing to deal with, but they were time consuming.  In spite of all the diversions, there WAS art to be made!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for Tuesday Tips and Techniques so I can show you what I've been doing.

  2. Hey, Jenny! Thank you. We're happy to put it behind us, too. It really was a big job for them. Our house was built in the late 1800s, so they had to dig into the foundation a little. Isn't that pic of Keith a hoot? LOL He actually took it before the water follies began using his new phone app. Big Hugs to you!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me! It's a pleasure sharing the creative world of art journaling with you. I love hearing from you, so comments and questions are always welcome.
