Yesterday was Daniel's 6th birthday. Since Karen had to work from noon to nine, we had a celebratory breakfast, during which Danny got to open his gifts from the immediate family. No cake for breakfast, so that had to wait for dinner, and Karen had to wait until quite late to partake. Such is life with a Mom who works in retail.
Danny had a fun day, though; he got to spend a lot of time playing with toys and watching movies that he got to choose, while Dad added joists and most of the treads to our temporary staircase in the new house (I'd have finished the treads, but I ran out of light).
Today it has been snowing, though not much. Sunshine tomorrow would seems to promise some clearing of the snow, except that the high temperature for the day is supposed to be around 19. Degrees Fahrenheit. Brr. But the snow is dry enough to sweep off my steps, and I can add the rest of the treads and the rails in the cold. If I have to. Sigh. Oddly enough, we're expecting rain and temperatures in the 40s later in the week. It has been a strange Autumn.
But whatever the weather, we continue to plug away at finishing the house. Soon, maybe even before Christmas if we can solve a few minor problems, we will have a new address.
Well, a new street address. Wherever we go you'll still be able to find us at TheBrooksBunch.com.
