Thankful Thursday...Up on the roof.
For anyone that doesn't know about what I do for a living, my official title is maintenance planner. That means I plan and schedule maintenance. So it was no surprise that I planned and scheduled my roofing job. I had it scheduled down to a T. Then Mother Nature stepped in with other plans.
On Friday, when I was supposed to start work, it snowed. It was the most snow we have had in 20 years. So much for plans. Then on Saturday it rained. Way to go Mother Nature. It was also just above freezing. I guess it is global warming. So here is my list for the week.
I am about 90% done with my roofing project and I am thankful that I am still standing. No one over the age of 50 should be allowed to work on a roof.
Even though my back yard is a swamp we will be needing the water this summer so I am thankful for the water.
The wood is still holding out and I am thankful for that. Our heater hasn't turned on this year and that is keeping our electric bill lower than most.
I am thankful that my youngest son is bringing up his grades. I only had to scream and shout like a maniac but he is improving. So much for being a calm parent.
I am thankful that we are supposed to have some warmer weather this weekend. I am ready for a boat ride and some relaxation. All work and no play...you know how that goes.
No matter what is happening in our lives we realize that we have it pretty good and we thank God for that. I used Sonya's link this week. Give Sonya a shout out to let her know that the thankfulness she started continues.
Have a great day,
