Clean Up after, and Craig is happy

I've been vacuuming all morning to clean up all the dust and dirt that filtered down when they did the roof. They did a pretty good job cleaning up outside, but the inside is a disaster. In one place the nails from the ceiling dry wall backed out leaving bits of plaster all over. There is dirt from the installation of the new replacement skylight and the sun tunnel.  An inexpensive framed poster fell off the wall and the glass broke, and today when I was taking down the plastic diffusers from the skylights, so I could clean all the roof dirt out of them,  I dropped one and it shattered.

 I guess I'll get my exercise by actually cleaning today!

Craig seems pretty happy with the roof work.  There are a few things they have to fix, but overall the work went well.

If Craig is happy, I am happy!

Next ...
Choosing  new paint colors.

Also finding a special carpenter to do some special work on the ends of a couple of large beams that the roofers said were OK but look terrible.

Daily countdown:
515 days, or 1 year, 4 months, 27 days to go.
Exercise Goal:
1000 miles on the treadmill,  1.5 yesterday

Today getting my exercise vacuuming and cleaning up all the
dirt that filtered down from the roof job.

Total walked = 153 miles
Someday I will be hiking 1000 miles  in National Parks!


  1. I'm told some people enjoy cleaning. I always thought of it as a necessary evil. Ugh! :(

  2. Cleaning up after sub contractors is never fun but SO satisfying once it is done. Take care, play some rockin' music and it's done before you know it. Glad to hear they cleaned up after themselves outside anyway.
