Sunday morning, January 19, 2014 - met with Clair early and discussed some issues and made choices. Another beautiful shades-of-gray-and-pink morning. Looking at the first photo below it does not look like we're high on a bluff overlooking Lake Huron - but we are. There's a big drop-off, gradual, not sheer, just beyond the tree on the left and the low lying bushes.
There are sheets of cardboard and pieces of carpeting protecting the newly installed oak floor and the new counter tops. The fridge, microwave, dishwasher, range, washer, and dryer are here and ready to be connected - maybe some time this week.
I've heard people say for years that you find out who your friends are when you're sick and/or hospitalized or when you are building and/or getting ready to move. I found the former true years ago and now I'm finding the latter true as well. That's great because it helps me set my priorities.
