Brisk Fall Day

The day was a little cooler today, but inside our house, it is still nice and toasty warm. Still haven’t turned the heat on – I’m hoping for at least November 1st!

IMG_0942Harry was busy this morning, finishing up the winterizing and cleaning the roof of the fiver.

He took this “before” picture of the roof. The air conditioners and falling leaves have not been kind to our roof.

IMG_0944I was a little worried about him working on the roof while I was away at work, but he promised to be careful.

I took his picture as he was hard at work when I got home.





There was also one more spot that Harry wanted to get mouse-proofed. No little critters are going to sneak their way through here.

We are now ready for the winter months. Although every week that we don’t get cold weather, I think - we are one week closer to spring!

In the meantime, I was busy working on painting the downstairs guestroom. I made some good progress. I was able to get the majority of the room edged and three walls painted. The lighting was getting very dim when I was finishing up so hopefully I don’t have a lot of missed spots – I will be checking tomorrow. I am hoping that by the end of the weekend, I can check this room off the list!


  1. nice work on the mouseproofing, roof cleaning and good for you for painting in the dark!!..hope it looks good in the morning!!

  2. Good job, Harry! Glad to hear you didn't slip - those rubber roofs get slick when they're wet!

  3. I always worried about Mike when he was up on the roof of the MH. It is a necessary thing though!!
    Doesn't look like any little critters are going to get through on you guys!
