Afternoon Tea

It's a tad late, really, for afternoon tea - 6:30 p.m.

However, work has come to a close for this day and the computer is on, my Rooibos Tea is warm and inviting beside me. The Aussie has his last coffee of the day accompanied by a slice of warm home made whole wheat-sunflowerseed-raisin bread slathered with fig jam, the sun is hovering in the southwestern sky and all is well in the world.

I do hope your world is as peaceful and beautiful as ours, also as productive.

It was discovered two days ago that the resident raccoons had nested throughout the area between the upstairs floor and the downstairs ceiling, chewing on cross beams, packing the insulation into nest sized areas whilst treading regularly between their chosen sites and the out-of-doors.

As a result, yesterday the upstairs floor was taken up..both of them..two layers.., the old insulation was removed, and today new insulation was placed and the first of two floors renailed onto the remaining studs.

Soon the 40 sq. feet of windows will arrive and be installed. The renovations are moving along nicely.
