Rock stocked

I’m enjoying my second week of paternity leave. During this time off I’ve taken on the task of picking up our kindergartener from school. I enjoy that despite having to figure out the workings of “car line” because I get some extra time with him, and it’s an excuse to stop by the house. This slightly snowy day saw sheetrock delivery and some progress on the fiber-cement siding. We also received the replacement sink from ADM. The original one was damaged. I can’t say enough about ADM’s customer service; they made everything right with no questions asked.

Next door a crew from the gas company was digging. One of the guys came over to notify me that they would be doing some work on our property tomorrow so I had another one those short conversations as he took in the shell of a modern house in front of him. The ones where they say “this is different”. He said it with a smile and we had a little laugh. Most people have that kind of reaction: intrigued, surprised, and friendly. It’s the sort of “I kind of like this but it’s not for me” feel that we get from most people.
