Looky, Looky, I Played Hookey

According to SIL Loretta I did the hookey hokey pokey on the roof. She's right. The morning was blue sky and sun, and I skipped church to work on the roof. We checked the weather and it was supposed to have increasing chances of rain beginning at 2 pm. If I didn't start until one or later, I wouldn't have a chance of finishing.

But look!

Yes, that face is DONE. Almost everything is put away and cleaned up. (One more blog post coming about some of that.)

Here's what the gutter looked like a week ago.

And this was my final piece of the job.

Of course, I have 2.5 faces of the roof to go, but not this year. I celebrated with an extra peanut butter sandwich! And it was cooling and the breeze picking up when I finished. They are saying possible snow showers on Tuesday. Wow. Just in time. And I'm feeling blessed that there were no leaks from all that time with sections of nothing but tarpaper, and that I had the resources to get this done!

Now it's back to the project I began on A Totally Fun Day.

YAY, Joan! It looks Fabulous! So happy that you were able to take advantage of the sun this morning and finish it!

Is there anything you CAN'T do, Sharkey???! You are somethin', my friend. Glad you got it done...and done safely.

Well done Joan :)

Ann said...

Great job and what a great feeling it must be to have gotten that done.

Karen and Gerard said...

I am so impressed you actually did that yourself! I wouldn't even consider attempting such a feat myself.

Good call Sharkey. Nice looking work too.

Great work!

Loretta- It does look nice, doesn't it?

Lin- well, yes, there are quite a few things on that list. But I'm not blogging about most of those.haha

Carol- That sounds Scottish to my untrained ears. Or maybe like something from the Herriott books. That was Yorkshire, right? I've probably managed to offend now, because I'm ignorant of subtle differences.

Ann- It's a big relief

Karen- I actually like roofing. But my bones aren't younger than they were a year ago. Funny how that works.

Chuck- thank you!

Gnome- Glad you approve!
