What's Happening Up on the Roof ~

Today all this heavy stuff arrived on our porch thanks to FedEx:
Waterproofing -- it's for the leaking roof. This is a roof paint.
And tape to seal it all up again.
It's so heavy that Adam brought the truck around to move the boxes elsewhere
To remind you: our contractor was supposed to have repaired our roof, but the heavy rains a few weeks ago proved that the roof was not repaired. Newly-painted walls were ruined, and newly-sheetrocked ceilings were as well.

As you see, we have staining and mold in living room, dining room, and Julia's room. Our contractor will be fixing this soon. We are providing the materials (as you see above), and he is providing the labor to repair the roof. We have opted to do a good repair, not a new roof, but a great sealant job. And before now, our home owner's insurance would not have covered a new roof in case of a storm or some natural disaster -- the age of the house and roof didn't allow for it. But after this repair, our roof will be covered. When you live in an area like this, with hurricanes and heavy rains and wind, you need roof coverage.

So, how 'bout some photos of Maggie? She's coming out of her shell!

We're enjoying her a lot, and other two four-legged family members are warming up to her a bit. She and Beau even play and wrestle. She's fitting in quite well.


  1. Sure hope that this works and your roof gets fixed this time!!
    Maggie is adorable!

  2. A good roof is a necessity that's for sure. Hope the work goes smoothly and it lasts a long time.

    Maggie is a cutie.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

  3. I hope the roof will be sorted now- a nightmare for you all! Maggie is very sweet!x

  4. I do hope you get your roof fixed up. Got to have a good roof over your head!

  5. Hooray for a dry house! With Maggie's interesting coat color she could almost pass for an Australian Shepherd! :)
