The Agony...

of what's sucking up my knitting/spinning time.

Five layers of shingles on that stupid roof. FIVE! With the first layer being cedar shakes. Why in the name of all that is holy didn't previous owners strip the bloody roof before re-shingling?

After many cancellations due to rain the roof is finally two-thirds done and it will be such a relief when it's complete. We bow and thank from the bottom of our hearts, my brother-in-law, nephew and his cousin for getting so filthy you couldn't recognize them and for tackling such a major task that is our roof.

Enjoy your weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there!

Ewww, that's the kind of shoddy prep work that drives my husband crazy. It may take him a long time to do a job, but at least he does it right.

From what I can see in the picture your home looks like it has a lot of character. I love houses like that.

Oh my. I'm just so sorry. At least it's 2/3 done. :)

I totally sympathize about the roof - that's why we got colored tin roofing! We'll never shingle again!!
