The landscape outside has been constantly changing, but the changes are all of the same sort. The equipment moves, the dirt moves (thankfully, only with the help of the equipment. No spontaneous sinkholes or mudslides), and the pipes move.
It has occurred to me that if the new sidewalk doesn't get laid down by winter, I won't need to be shoveling our front walk. The silver lining to that potential cloud has been FOUND!
Bandit is starting to have 'issues' when left home alone. Sunday, the issues required mopping the living room. Last night, it was a matter of cleaning the fragments of pumice stone from the bathroom floor. But why, after 5 years of sensible, sane, sound dog-hood, is this happening? The smoke alarm isn't going off, and there wasn't any construction work going on. Hmmm.
Both Filius and Filia have survived a first week of college. We see them at church on Sunday, and it's good to hear more about their weeks.
Knitting is progressing nicely. If all goes well today, I may finish the baby blanket I've been working on. Next up is an intarsia cardigan to finish off the layette. I'm delighted to have other projects lined up for after that.
'See' you next week! (All one of you who read my blog?)
