Progress. It was the theme for this week, everywhere I looked.

A Dollar Tree store is coming! (See what I did there?) 🙂

Huge progress has been made on the house.
The view out the living room window, Wednesday morning. Shingles being torn off and thrown into the back of a dump truck. Bye, shingles, thank you for sheltering us for so many years!

And by Wednesday, we had this.

Funny story about this new roof. Apparently, the construction supply store that our builder uses sent the wrong shingles. Instead of sending and delivering regular, 10-year house shingles, they sent architectural, TWENTY-FIVE-YEAR shingles instead!! The roofer went ahead and used them, and since it was their mistake, we got a pretty sweet, free upgrade on our roof. This roof can last until the house is paid off! Well, unless we have any more trees move in with us.

Yesterday, a couple guys came by to patch the hole in the hallway.

They’ll be in and out over the next few days, mudding, sanding and then, eventually, painting the whole hallway. Almost good as new! At least the holes are whole again.

In other progress news, I have been hard at work on decorations for my niece’s upcoming wedding, which is now two weeks away! Eek!! I have made pinwheels and poufs, and yesterday, I bought all the silk flowers I’ll need for her bouquet, corsages, boutonnieres, and other decorations and projects. I have a long to-do list for the next two weeks!

Progress is a good thing.
