So busy…

We got the new roof today- looks just like the old roof but not damaged! Amazing how they rip it off.

Sunday, Linda replaced the {{popup skylighttub.gif skylighttub 473×500}}skylight over the hot tub- amazing hail can do this damage. Now all that is left is the barn but it will have to wait until spring.

Today Linda had an endoscopy on her {{popup throat.gif throat 324×409}}esophagus to check the condition of her “Barrett’s esophagus” which is a pre-cancerous condition in which normal cells lining the esophagus are replaced with abnormal cells that, in some people, develop into a type of cancer of the esophagus called adenocarcinoma. A tissue biopsie is done and we will know the results in 7-10 days. She has this done every 2 years so we stay on top of it. So far hers has stay in this stage and not progressed.

Fall is also a busy time for the gardens- lots of transplanting and preparing gardens for the winter. Add work in there and it seems like there is no time to just enjoy (can I say I miss summer when my time belongs to me). Still getting better from the flu as well.

On a last note- this {{popup snack.gif snack 550×352}}creature was outside my front door and scared the living shit out of me- he crawled into a hole under the house (if it comes in we are going to have problems).

    Though I like most creatures- this one I did try to kill- he was just faster. I am a little worried he might eat Mr. Toad who has camped out in my Basil plant- haven’t seen him in awhile. I did forget- the gutters are going on next week- then we will be done till spring and yes it feels good to not have to juggle all this.

    Boy that hail did a number on that skylight! I’ll bet you will be glad when you get all these repairs done. Your "baby" is so cute. What a nice addition to your family. What did you name it….Slim. Please don’t bring it home for a visit. Mom
