Hi Every Buddy!
Last time I told you next time I wrote we would have lots of pics of our home improvements . . .but none have taken place yet!
We have done all the things we are supposed to, put the work out for bid, and we are almost ready for the roof to be replaced but that can't begin until the electrician appears to remove an old fuse box, and on it goes!I suppose much of the problem is our short summer season and everyone wanting work done between now and fall.
Stella had a hard time with all the booming of fireworks on Independence day(it starts mid afternoon and continues on and on!)She could finally go to sleep when they finished. The next day she slept away most of the day, then about suppertime we got a huge electrical storm,thunder and lightning in every window and it went on for hours! Not a break to be had for dear Stella!
Maybe workers here next time I write and we'll try for pictures galore. Sending hugs all around and wishing you all a happy summer.
Jo,Stella and Zkhat (who is not upset by boomers)
Dear Godmother Stella and Auntie Jo, I'm so sorry that you had a scary 4th. I got to go hiking with my girl, Riley, and then later I got to go swimming with my girl Macy. j I was exhausted and slept through everything. 'Course we don't get too bothered by loud noises ;-) We're sorry you're having to wait for your work to get done on your house! You must be so frustrated! Sending you some of our warm, dry weather; and lots of love, too!ReplyDelete
awww. sorry for poor stella. we have had fireworks for over a week in the area. all the neighbors like to shoot them off. thankfully, the dogs and horse have gotten pretty used to them. well, as long as i keep the dogs inside and the horses can stay in their barn, they're fine.ReplyDelete
sorry for the home repair delays! i'm sure the contractors are really staying busy!
Oh dear, poor Stella, fireworks then thunder, that is just too much for a lover of peace and quiet. Perhaps it's a good thing that the workmen didn't show up at the same time too.ReplyDelete
Wishing you a restful rest of the week.
It is not usually EASY to get workers... ORGANIZED and Ready to work, is it?ReplyDelete
So Sorry Stella... this is not a very Critter Furendly Holiday...
See you SOON... We hope.
Between the fireworks and the storm last night, Emma has been a wreck also. How about lunch sometime this month?ReplyDelete
Hi Judy, Having a lunch meetup sounds like fun.Toss out a date or two and we can get together. How long will you be at the refuge? Write me atDelete
Hugs back to you all and fingers crossed, that the workers will find time to fix things at your home.ReplyDelete
Poor Stella..... hope all is ok now and fireworks are over and summer is back.
und Luna und Luigi :-)
I hope that Stella is feeling better. It sounds like a rough couple of days for her. And, I hope that those workers get on the ball soon!ReplyDelete
It's good to see your post and to have heard from you too! Summer has certainly been a busy time for you, (me too) full of so many things--But I hope everything gets done, and life gets back to its "regular programming!" Take care of yourself, okay?ReplyDelete
Oh noes! Well I hopes you guys are doin' betters today. And I hopes you get the work done on your house soon! Workin' with tradespeeps can be tricky sometimes with all the permits and delays and scheduling. Keepin' my paws crossed for you!ReplyDelete
Work never seems to get done when it's supposed to.ReplyDelete
Turns our Lily didn't like fireworks either so Mrs. T. let her jump in bed. Whoda thought ever....:)ReplyDelete
Poor Stella! YoYoMa is particular understands her distress. It is monsoon season here so every afternoon my Big Boy has to hunker down against the brief thunderstorms that roll through. House projects always seem to be a story of "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie"...paws crossed here it all falls into place soon.ReplyDelete

Can't wait for the pictures. I'm not great with fireworks - but better than I used to be. Mum and dad dad were grateful for my improvements. They don't like it when I'm scared.ReplyDelete

Hello Jo,Stella and Zkhat! I just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking about you! I hope all is well with you, and that you're enjoying your summer!! My husband is coming to Minnesota and Wisconsin next week, he's so excited to get to go 'home!' Take care, and know that you're being thought of in a little corner of Virginia!!ReplyDelete
Noises make me skeered, too. I hope u feels better. :)ReplyDelete
My the Mom is and architeckt, and we live in a 60+ year old home that seems to be in a constant "ah oh repair" state, and we don't know what's more painful... begging for someone to show up and do the work, or... paying for it. That said, I know you will be happy and well pleased once the work is complete. And we send our love!!!ReplyDelete
Little Reufus and the Mom

Hey Stella, you still there?ReplyDelete
Just wondering how you feel about 'your' George Clooney getting married this weekend?
Life is tough sometimes, isn't it?
Hi, Nice to hear from you, we have had so much trouble with blogging we nearly gave up. All is going ok at the moment here. Dogs still coming and going.ReplyDelete
This little Luke ( Lucky) was on a estate where he has been passed about but I can see nobody has cared or walked him. We hope you get you repairs sorted out soon.
