Putting "labor" in Labor Day

No rest for us down here in Silver Spring this Labor Day week! My dad came down and Geoff came over to help Rob build a new fence for Abi. Not even Ernesto could stop them. Here they are starting to set the posts.

Here's the first meal in the new dining room!

Soon they put the first slats on the fence...

By the end of Sunday, they were almost finished.


And what was I doing while all this was going on? I was culling. I ruthlessly went through things we had stored in the eaves, oh, since we first moved in. Ahhh...a clean slate!

And today, Monday, Carlos was there installing HVAC ducts. Yeah!

That's real progress. when we hadn't seen anything new, we imagined the worst. You may make that occupation date yet!

Posting pictures of electrical wires didn't seem particularly exciting, plus we were pretty busy. Slowly but surely...

Bourbon will love running around in that fenced-in yard when he comes to visit Abi (whenever that is...)

Man, Rob, you really have it made with those ringers that Erica brings with her.
