Lazy Saturday

Got up earlier than normal this morning because some guys who are on the work crew here in our community were coming to fix my rain gutter that was pulling away from the house and not draining properly. They were supposed to show up at 8 am but didn't so at 8:30 I called them. They showed up at 9:30. I spoke with the foreman about double-pane windows. I've been thinking about them because I know that they would save me money on energy bills, but they would cost between $8,000 and $10,000 which would include the windows, the screens and all new window frames on the house. That's about the price I expected, but one of these years I will also have to get a new roof put on the house as I still have the original roof and it is about 22 years old. I'll have to think about it. After lunch I took Hiker our for a walk. We did almost 2 miles. It was nice out...around 72° and sunny. Not many people out walking this time of the day. Seems like most of them are out in the morning or early evening. I cannot believe how out of shape my legs and feet got from not walking as much during the hot summer days.

  1. If your roof is 22 years old, you probably need it more than the windows. But sometimes you just have to go with what you like, more.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
