It's snowing heavily now, but not when I woke up and rolled my recycling bin to the street at 6 a.m. It was so warm and clear all I needed was a sweater and slippers. 22 degrees!
Little comes to mind to talk about this morning. Does contentment do this? I'm drinking in this scene before me. Watching the snow etch the tree branches and railings and pine needles.
Another free day today. Yippee! Yesterday I unpacked the shipment of replacement windows to inspect for damage. How I wish I'd found none! I took pictures of manufacturing defects in three of the twelve windows. Two photos along with an e-mail and a phone call went to the manufacturer. Warranty will cover this if these defects render the windows unusable. We shall see how much of a fuss I need to raise.
Today my handyman comes to do little things inside. Haven't seen him since two days before Christmas. He's losing his home to foreclosure any week now. I feel so bad for him. His income can't support his house. Work is so hard to come by for an old timer like him, but he's wonderful. I wonder where he will go. I keep recommending him, but typically people chose teams of workers that come in and get the job done - fast. Fast isn't a word I use with John. Can't exactly use the word dependable either, well, not 100% of the time. But - when he does show up his work is thorough, and excellent. Besides, he is a kind person and I enjoy sharing beers and chatting at the end of a day.
Today, if he comes, he will swap out my dirty old brass door hinges for new satin nickel ones. Maybe today he'll swap out a foggy window for a new one? It will sure be nice when I can actually see through my windows.
Wishing you a safe day
A warm day
A friendly day
