Summer has arrived in New Hampshire, for real! I don’t think it will snow again until fall, I hope.

Our Memorial Day Weekend has been lazy and sunny and nice.
Except – for the dusting. The dust is everywhere! I had no idea it would be this dusty. But, it’s okay, just one more thing to take care of during this fun house renovation.
Our contractor had said “maybe” we’d have our porch by Memorial Day. It didn’t happen. Apparently some of the joists have sunk a little so they’re going to fix that. So, a few of the floor boards went down but that’s it for now. Honestly, I’m impressed that they checked and are fixing it. Much nicer than having a dippy porch floor, right?
They put the plywood back down so we were able to sit out there in our “travel chairs.” And it is nice! Moffett’s even been out there working on his computer.
The ceiling and walls are done, just need to be stained. I’ve picked a spot to hang my new porch sign. I’ve arranged and rearranged the deck furniture (which is presently in the back yard covered by a tarp) in my head, a gazillion times.
The town is full of tourists. The traffic is annoying but, in this economy, they’re more than welcome.
Moffett was in Richmond last week for a very short visit with relatives. He brought back one of my favorites, a cake from Ukrops. Oh, yum…
