Lazy Workers, Yummy Food, and Squirrels

So I haven't been a very productive member of society lately, or for myself that is. My sister is visiting from Kansas so we have been being lazy bums. Our house is buzzing with activity though.

So far this week we have roofers all over the place. My genius husband went up the roof last night to check out their progress, he was not happy. You should NEVER cut corners with a customer that 1) Rewrites your contract to protect himself before you even start. 2) Or one that knows the correct process that you are not following, due to his job.

Needless to say Colin had a LONG list of issues and the owner of the company came over to check them out this morning. At least the owner knew he better come talk with Colin and get it resolved. I am glad I am not a contractor working for Colin....but am glad he is so good at his job for our sake.

Cheryl (my sister) made us delicious fried chicken, asparagus w/ red peppers, steamed artichokes, fresh bread, and brownies last night. Yum!

OH! I almost forgot our real excitement last night. Well, other than the roof and dinner. We caught a squirrel in the attic. They have been getting inside the attic so Colin set a trap he borrowed from our neighbor. Colin and my dad blocked off where we thought the squirrels were getting in and they also trimmed the tree that the squirrels were jumping off onto the roof. They are still getting on the house though by using the metal gutters of all things.

Anyways we were debating transporting the squirrel somewhere else or poisoning it so it doesn't come back. During that conversation the dogs were running around both sides of the cage. It scared the squirrel so bad it must have had a brain hemorrhage. The poor thing didn't make it very long. I am just glad I don't have to worry about it again until we catch another one. I don't seem to share my father's hatred of the creatures since I couldn't stomach actually killing it, even though it was damaging our house.

I am still lagging behind on new jewelry but I now have an AWESOME light fixture in my craft room which is slowly getting organized. Next week is definitely the week. :)
