Rachel the Roofer
"Rosie the Riveter has nothing on this gal - Rachel the Roofer - you GO girl!"
Isn't that funny? I laughed out loud at that comment.
Lots of work still to do on the old Shady B Ranch, and a sunny day is too good to pass up. So saturday afternoon Larry and I went to work on one of our many projects - the roof of the garage. It took me a while to get my "roof legs", but eventually I forgot I was walking around on a slanted surface high off the ground, until Larry said to me - "Hey, you're walking instead of scooting on your butt." And at that minute, I had to start scooting again. It's like awareness hit me and the fear set in all over again and I lost my balance - feeling magnetized, drawn to the edge where I will fall off head first. I'm not very good at heights. But man, give me that nail gun. HOOO-AHHHH - I'm a nailgun kinda gal.
Lately our projects have been indoors as the rain has been steady around here, so it was oh so good to get outside and feel the sun on our backs. Our ponds are full, the bar ditches flowing, the pastures are soggy, and the horses stay covered in mud. I stopped worrying over my floors indoors - it is pointless until the weather turns. But it promises to be a lush and wonderful spring, and for me and most of the folks I know around here, it can't come soon enough.
Say it with a SMILE and a handmade TILE!
