All last week the house was buzzing with activity! Paint touch-up, electricians, plumbers, brick-layers, landscapers, etc. YAY! It feels good seeing so much activity happening over there . . . like there is actually a light at the end of this building-a-house-tunnel. :D
The electricians were setting lights on the side of the house and were startled when they came across a tarantula. Yep. Great, huh. :( I hope there aren't any more of those bad-boys sneaking around! I hope that once we get the grass in, the creepy-crawlies will move next door to the reservoir.
Also, last week, we had a fire over at our property. !!!!!!!!! YIKES! is right! Our painters left a box of turpentine-soaked rags NEXT to the dumpster. They *forgot* to soak them in water and they caught on fire at around 10:00 p.m. one night. THANK HEAVENS for a watchful neighbor that called the fire department! The dumpster is pretty far from the house, but it did catch the surrounding field on fire -- about 4' X 30'.
When my husband talked to the painters the next day, all they said was, "Yeah. Those rags can do that." You can bet their boss received an earful from my hubs after that comment. :( He told them from now on they'll have to haul all of their own garbage off the property. The workers said, "But, that might catch my car on fire!" Ya think?! DUH!!!!! Better your run-down van than my brand new house! Grrrrrr!!!!!
Here are a few pictures for you that I took last week. They are kind of random, but oh well! Posts need pictures, right?! :D
