Groove Is In The Heart

I was sitting on the deck the other morning, enjoying a cup of coffee when I just happen to look down and spy this! Darn things are everywhere.
So, it's been raining on and off here for the past couple of days. I got the waterproofing finished just in time it seems! I'll have to let things dry out and get cleaned up a little first before I lay the drain in and backfill though, so looks like I'm off that project for a short while.
They called me to come back to work yesterday. I was surprised but it is only for about a week so it's okay; I'm still going to get plenty of time to work on the house. A small health clinic we are building needs a little framing done and it's for one of my favorite supers, so I said okay. It's not very far from the house either, well, relatively speaking, so another plus.
So, I think I'll work on the stained glass window today and probably over the weekend too. And yes, I'll show pictures and post about that. It's too wet to paint or for most of the other stuff I need to do and I really need to get that window done. I have three more that I have agreed to build for someone else so, I got to get on that.

Loretta said... hubby and I were talking about he wanted to get some big rocks for my side yard and fix me a rock garden. I told him about you building your house and your beautiful wall you just did. I opened up your site to show him pictures and when he saw your profile picture he said "look at those arms, no wonder she can build a house!" He was impressed with you and your house and

I went back to March how much you've done!

Thanks a lot! Now that ridiculous yet catchy song is stuck in my head.I've been reading, but to comment I have to close IE (for some reason I can't make cookies work), open Firefox, get signed in..OK it doesn't sound as annoying as it feels, but all my bookmarks are on IE.

All whining aside, I LOVE everything you are doing. Keep it up! You're my hero!
