New Roof


The roofers came by yesterday to re-build the roof over our carport. Virus or no virus, it turns out that construction still continues apace. I suppose that being outdoor work makes it easy enough to maintain the requisite six-foot distance necessary for Social Distancing. I keep joking that the sound of a quarantine is the sound of a weed-whacker: someone has been out weed-whacking every. single. day. But, again, I suppose yard work is one of the few remaining activities that people feel comfortable leaving the house to do while still staying true to the recommendations of viral pathologists, so I can’t really blame them.

I love being at home: in truth I’m quite enjoying the new pace of life, but even I have to acknowledge that the days feel like weeks and I’m having trouble keeping track of what day it is. (Thursday? I’m pretty sure?) I’ve done my taxes. I’ve archived my bills. I’ve disinfected the kitchen to within an inch of it’s life… while I still have PLENTY of small “housekeeping” tasks (including, but not limited to actual housekeeping) I’m burning through my to do lists at a rate I haven’t been able to accomplish in years. Depending on how long this lasts, I might actually get… dare I say it?… bored.

But it hasn’t happened yet.

  1. YOU may be lucky enough to have construction as usual. But, for some reason, my folks cannot get a basement/wall repair job done. I’m guessing because they fall into the “aged and dangerous” age group that scare some people the most.
