tapas, anyone?

for you non-bilingues out there, tapa is the word for lid. last night a little imagination came into reality, as we covered the pool for construction. you would have to work to fall in, as it is above grade, but the thought of, say, lawsuit, makes me a little nervous. and this way no little squirrels will drown. friends came on a long cross-town truck adventure and after various stops we both started and stopped working in the dark. and our lovely neighbors let us pull a hose through their yard, across the street, and into ours to start filling the pool.

i am excited to be able to write for the second time that something will happen tomorrow – and then hopefully that won’t be big news anymore. piers start drilling at 9am, and there we’ll be, taking time-lapse pictures so the speed of framing will be evident. trusses are made and sitting waiting for delivery. windows are being manufactured in dallas. all the wood is ordered and arranged. plans have been changed so we won’t have to climb a tree to go upstairs. and i even have a few leads on spray foam insulation, and an alternative called spider insulation.

thank you for all the kind words over the weekend. i am sick of prepping.

    This is in no way making fun of you, but I just had to laugh out loud at how the typo of one letter when you’re sleep deprived, can totally change a sentence. ;o) “and our lovely neighbors let us pull a house through their yard, across the street, and into ours to start filling the pool.”

    So excited for y’all, and can’t wait to see the progress that’s being made! There’s an end in sight! :o)
