Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
Spring is definitely here! My car is taking on the familiar hue of pollen; my coworkers are all running around sneezing and coughing, blinking through red, watery eyes; my azaleas are coming into bloom; most of the migrant birds have departed for their northern breeding grounds; and we have already gone over 80 degrees more than once. That last part was less-than thrilling because I was outside working on fence repair that day and it was HOT! But it was good to get the fence repaired.
Progress has at last been made at home! I got a dying and badly leaning tree taken down in the backyard. My roof has finally been replaced! Hurray!!! It took two days for the complete tear off and replacement, I was home for both days, what a racket! Now I am treading carefully and looking for nails. I picked up a magnetic sweeper and have quite a collection of nails as a result. I'm entertained that I have had the roof done 3 times, each time by a different company, and each company uses a different color plastic disk for their nails. I now have quite a colorful collection of plastic disks retrieved from the yard. The gutters won't be done for another 2-3 weeks, apparently there is always a delay between the roof getting done and the gutters getting done (maybe to allow time for any loose debris on the shingles to wash off?).
And I have a plan to replace the huge section of fencing that came down - vinyl fencing! I recently discovered that working with wooden fencing sections is not something I want to do anymore, way too heavy! I have researched vinyl fencing and found some that will work. I hope to get that project underway over the next couple of weeks. Bit by bit I'm getting all the Hurricane Michael damage repaired... just in time for the 2019 hurricane season.
We have several events planned for March: the St. George Island Chili Cookoff, a tour of the Lewis Spring House - our own Frank Lloyd Wright house, a dinner at Red Robin, and we begin our journey into the world of Harry Potter. The Springtime Tallahassee parade and jubilee in the park is the same day as the movie, so the movie is going to be an hour later than usual, so people can enjoy those downtown events.
Last renewal reminder - we would hate to lose any of you!
Hope to see you at an event soon.
