Even though I prefer Blogger, I have a Wordpress blog at Marti's DIY for those who can't comment here. Or you can email me. (Right sidebar)

By the way, if you use Blogger and can’t comment on WordPress blogs, change to a different browser. I found that I couldn’t post to WordPress when using Firefox.

Apparently, some Wordpress blogs won't let me comment if I use my blogger email either. So if you get a comment from me from thisemaildoesntexist@_________, that's why.

Day 7

The window came in yesterday! So last night we put it in and didn't get as much done on the facia and soffit. It's hard to get much done when Hubby gets in from work late and needs to rest and eat before starting on this project.

The cat is getting used to this new routine and the Tyvek crackling in the breeze (that stuff is LOUD) doesn't bother him as much as it did. Last night he was sprawled on the deck, supervising, when two hummingbirds came to the feeder. Hummingbirds must have teeny, tiny brains in their tiny bodies, because they flew right into the cat's face. Cute as hummingbirds are, they can be pretty aggressive with each other, and in their aerial dogfight, they didn't notice they were flying into the cat. I must say too, that the cat's reflexes are still pretty quick, and he became upright and airborne before I could even yell NO. For a moment, I thought he got one of them, but he came up empty-handed.

He has studied the hummingbird feeder before, but I don't think he knew what was going on there. Now he does, so the feeder needs to be raised about five feet. Like I need another thing to do right now.


  1. Hurray for you, you are dried in and I know that feels GREAT.


  2. That is funny about the hummingbirds. They don't arrive here until about May 10th, it's a long flight to Northern Ontario from Mexico!

  3. Good progress if your Guy is doing this after work.

    No humming birds here yet either. I love to watch them fly around our roses. Too bad they don't pose well.
