28 days of gratitude - day 3 - team effort
Today I am so grateful for Marty's perseverence and my friend Maren's constant helping hand. We have been putting up this silly fiddly shed from that well known hardware mutlinational for what seems like days now. We needed something temporary but still sturdy. It certainly would not survive a category 1 cyclone. Here I was the negative one. Prancing around saying "its not going to work". "We should organise to dismantle what we have done and take it back". "Maybe we should not have even put up a shed?". Man can I be a pain in the butt.
We have needed to buy extra screws and braces to make it stay firm. We are only renting so could not put down concrete slab. Grrrrrr. Nothing is ever easy is it?
Remarkably through the above ignoring my whining, they just got on with the job. In this continued heat wave. I decided to come inside with my tail between my legs and make every one a great supper. Saganaki and mixed green salad with asparagus and snake beans and baby spinach. Also baked pumpkin and quinoa salad. For a treat gin and tonic with lots of lime. Bubba loved the salads.
This morning he slept till 8.30 am, Bit out of the blue.
Thank you for putting up with me.
