Sunshine Of Your Love
Friday was a rainy ol' drizzly, gray day but yesterday was beautiful and today should be also. A buddy of mine that worked out on the railroad job (one of my few unmarried guy friends) dropped by Friday afternoon to visit. I was happy to see him as we have not seen each other since that job, although I have spoken to him on the phone a couple of times. That's the way it goes in construction. He was sent to the Slidell, LA job which has now officially been shut down. He had come home to get his trailer to haul back and get his stuff. The job was expected to last 2 years so the guys will rent a house and so on. So, I don't have to worry about going to Slidell anymore. An interesting note though, is that he said our site engineer has continued to have meetings for another railroad job in or near Atlanta. Before we all left the railroad, their rep asked us if we would all go over there to build the same thing, only bigger. They were so happy with our job they wanted the same crew to do this other one but we all knew that the odds of getting us all together again would be slim. This Atlanta job is supposed to start in January, so now, the odds may not be so slim with this LA job shut down. Several of the guys had gone or were going there. I'm not so sure. I've about had it with trains myself (and what they remind me of), every job I've been on since surrounded by them.
But, back to my original story. My buddy had been dying to come see the house for some time so we had a good chat for awhile and I gave him a mini tour. He loved it here and the house. I've been very happy to have my recent visitors describe the house and land as: So cozy, wonderful, comfortable and serene. Very peaceful and relaxing and the house like a romantic retreat and extremely well built. I don't know about the romantic part, I wish, but we'll see! Now, these are other people's words so I don't want it to sound like I'm bragging so much. But it is very peaceful here.
I ended up doing garden work yesterday but finally completed a project that I've been wanted to put together for some time so I'll show ya'll that soon. May get to work on the pantry today. Hope you all have had a good weekend so far.
