Pontifex/Chirine: Another quiet day; got some grilling done, dinner with Sixth Daughter, and now a thunderstorm. A much better day today, then yesterday, I think.

acrobaticflea: Just popped in to see how you were and caught up with your tragic news. I am so sorry for you and your family. Take care.

Pontifex/Chirine: Thank you for the kind words, tonight; I'm at rock bottom, but the weekend may get me back up.

Pontifex/Chirine: A start has been made; just in from getting new glasses after 12 years on the old ones...

Pontifex/Chirine: 6th and 7th Daughters have their game group in to day, and the laughter is filling the house. Hopefully, the good mood will continue. Meanwhile, I am clipping three regiments of Zulus off their sprues...

Pontifex/Chirine: A very nice evening; a minor crisis in the laundry, as I was washing the drop cloths for the roofers' arrival tomorrow. Wet, but vac'd.

Pontifex/Chirine: Roofing project starting a day late, and not starting at all well. More news later...

Pontifex/Chirine: The roofers are really coming through, which is good 'cause we have rain in the forecast. Doing a very good job, the Missus says, with nothing coming in the house. We did evacuate all the flamingoes from the yard as a precaution, and it was good we did.

Pontifex/Chirine: The new roof is all on, and no leaks from today's rain. Gutter and downspouts nest week, but I'm on vacation and can get the eaves painted before they get here. And there's enough left-overs to fix the garage's roof! Living the dream, here...

Glorious_General: Yay for new roof. Quite a relief, isn't it.
Sept 12, 2019 21:45:48 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: Yep; no water in the basement, no water from the ceilings, and no water upstairs in the library. I like it.

Pontifex/Chirine: Home safe tonight, but exhausted. Much more tomorrow evening. Are there any threads I need to answer? Thanks!
Sept 13, 2019 22:36:41 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: Lots got done today, with the help of 6th and 7th Daughters; three barrels of wood scraps out the door and Lord Chirine back on a mannequin - new one, the same size as 7th Daughter!

Pontifex/Chirine: Day 2 of my vacation is winding down; yesterday was good, and so was today with a nice excursion and grocery shopping. We are loaded for next Sunday's game session...

Pontifex/Chirine: Vacation, Day 3: Patched the broken and cracked concrete on the front steps. Next up, painting the fascia boards on the house ahead of the new gutters and downspouts. I am making things, again, and having a great time doing it!

Hathmet: As you should!
Sept 16, 2019 21:15:16 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: Thank you - it's great, being able to get things done...

Pontifex/Chirine: Mannequin problem; the new lady is having issues with the weight of the armor, so I'm going to have to replace her with another more structurally sound one.
Sept 17, 2019 15:40:13 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: Concrete's hard; took the shuttering off today.
Sept 17, 2019 15:40:36 GMT -6
Pontifex/Chirine: Vacation, Day 5; front steps painted to protect the new concrete. New posts up on the blog; I have a slight cold. Nothing serious, just annoying.
