Return of the Monk

Got a text from The Wandering Monk yesterday afternoon. He swears he’ll be here bright and early this morning. And that he’ll be “80%” okay to work despite having chopped his leg with a machete on Saturday.

We shall see. If he’s able to pull this off, I expect I’ll be called upon to do more minioning than usual. But the cold rain has finally abated and we have clear days ahead. I’m ready to get back to the Great Foundation and Screen Porch project.

If 80% turns out to be overly optimistic, I may just call a halt to the project until June or July.

Wish us luck!

    Thanks, Joel. He’s not here yet (and already well past his bright-and-early timeline). Once he does get here, I’ll expect him to go “lite” and take care of himself.

    That said, I do have a goal of getting the back of the house torn off and a new rear wall safely constructed before week’s end. That may be optimistic, but if we have to pause the project, I’d sure like everything to be closed up and critter-proof when we do.

    Good luck on the critter front. We’re in the midst of a tiny little ants invasion, and are setting traps and being extra clean and such.
