We had a local roofing company come out today to take pictures of the roof damage, extract the limb from the roof and tarp it up for us. Here’s a picture of the culprit. I’m glad they were able to do it today since it’s supposed to rain in the next day or so. I’m not sure how long this repair process will take since we’re having to do an insurance claim. Time will tell. I love Mother Nature but man oh man is she hard on my wallet. #mothernature #insurance #roof #repair #tree #limb #house #damage
On the way home yesterday, my wife mentions to me that there’s a big limb on top of the house. I got home after sundown so I couldn’t see it. But later that night we discover a branch poking through our guest room ceiling along with some wet sheetrock. We look up in the attic and see that it’s more than just a branch. We’ve got something the size of a fireplace log pushing through the roof. Fudge! #limb #tree #damage #roof #house
So, I’m writing at Starbucks over lunch today and witnessed this conversation:
Customer: * walks up to the pick-up area and stares intently at the barista *
Barista: Need something?
Customer: Yesterday I was here and I dropped my phone in the trash. Did you pick it out?
Barista: Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. Did you let us know that you dropped it in there?
Barista: Oh. Well, we take out the trash daily. If you had let us know when it happened, we might have been able to help.
Customer: So I’ve lost my phone then?
Barista: I’m sorry?
Customer: I keep going in the negative with my bank account!
How? What? The weirdness surrounding us is astonishing. It makes me wonder how many weird conversations happen daily at that pick-up counter. #starbucks #conversations #weird
It just dawned on me that this is my last full week of work for the rest of the year. After this, I’ve got a handful of short weeks and then I’m out on vacation until the new year. #work #vacation #time
Last night I was second guessing myself about pantsing my story. I like the quality better when I pants but I’m also much slower that way because I’m stumbling along in the dark, which drives me nuts. I started to outline it last night but then this morning I’m second guessing that second guess. Are writers always this fickle? Or is it just me? #writing #plotting #pantsing #story
