Well, we've had the first bit of trouble in our soon to be paradise at the Squash House! I received an email and a call from our contractor - who happens to live across the street - that his wife woke him at 3:00 a.m. to the sounds of a woman screaming and breaking glass! Ted ran outside to find nothing. He walked up and down the street and all he found was a car window of another neighbors that had been broken. Some time ago, in an effort to make it look like someone lives at the Squash House, we told Ted to feel free to park his contractor's trailer in the driveway and use the garage as much as he likes. Ted said he had been over there for several days in and out of the garage, but it wasn't until yesterday when our cabinet fellow was over that mentioned the broken window to Ted who really hadn't noticed it!
I can see why he might have missed it - this bedroom window is on the other side from the garage and our large Dogwoods could have easily masked it from view - which is probably a good thing!
So now I'll have to make another solo trip over tomorrow for a few days to take care of getting the window fixed. Just for good measure I will also install some timers on lamps throughout the house.
Mr. Squash had a procedure done on his ruptured disk yesterday and is feeling much better! He has to take it easy for the next week, but if all goes well, he should be feeling close to normal soon! He wanted me to thank all of you who have sent such kind well wishes his way!
I'm sorry to say I won't be posting to Vintage Thingies Thursday this week as I just won't have time to keep up with emails and blogs. But be sure to visit Suzanne tomorrow for a list of fun vintage posts! I'll be back next week for sure! The cabinet maker told me all the doors and hardware are now installed and look fantastic - can't wait to show you those pictures!
