A Bigger Scaffold
There's a tree on my walk to and from work that's already dropping very colorful leaves. It's pretty early and most trees around here are still green, but I'm loving these little bursts of color I find on the sidewalk.
Thank goodness it's the weekend! But it's not going to be a peaceful one. We came home last night to find this:
That's a MUCH larger scaffold than the one erected to replace the Russians' window. I opened my e-mail to find a note from Mrs. Russia saying that the workers determined the first scaffold wasn't enough to repair the roof and they needed a bigger one for safety. Well, this thing is gigantic, with pulleys and huge bracing poles that extend all the way to the other side of the patio.
It's so big it's hard to photograph.
Anyway, she said the workers were going to spend today and Monday repairing the roof. I guess I shouldn't be too complainy about it. We definitely don't want a leaky roof.
Meanwhile, I'm going to make myself scarce. I'm planning to walk another segment of the Thames Path. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. We had rain yesterday and we're supposed to have rain tomorrow, but I think today should be relatively dry. Photos to come!
