Home Ownership

There's always something to do when you own your own home. The roofer came by early this morning for payment. He did a great job at a reasonable rate. My folks arrived shortly thereafter. My dad mowed the lawn on my riding mower and I did the trim with the push mower. Mom and I then sanded the tin ornamental architecture piece from the roof, stripped it and primed it. I'll paint it tomorrow, then the roofer will come back and put that back on as well as install my weather vane. I deadheaded the daffodils, pruned the privet, and got rid of some dead wood. Mom and I used roundup on some weeds. We never got around to filling the holes, putting the grass seed and mulching. But, the yard looks so nice!
