Up and at ’em (as Mom used to say).
Up at 5:39 to be exact.
Plenty of time to have my coffee
And stare at the wall (as Mom used to say).
Meeting Joe G. at 8:00 a.m.
Picking up old windows from John A.
For the old garage on Spring St.
And pick up the four pieces of furniture
I bought from John A.
He recycles and reconfigures this and that
Into cheerful, charming cabinets, tables, nightstands, birdhouses…
The furniture will also go to Spring St. as I slowly turn it into a vacation rental.
Joe G. and Homer G. building a covered back porch there
(Faces west, very hot)
And shelves in the utility room closet.
Rain has kept Charlie S. from delivering a load of granite gravel
For the dirt floor in the garage.
When it comes to rain,
We don’t complain.
