If you have read my blog for awhile you will remember the car fire we had (Sunday August 30 post, I still am having trouble adding links!) that left the garage rather sooty. Well, finally tomorrow the gentleman is coming to start ripping out the old drywall and replacing it. We are also having the garage fully insulated. It has been very difficult to get someone to do the job. One company we contacted came out, gave us an estimate and then proceeded to not show up. We phoned three times and always were told "We will be there next week." One of our neighbours had their basement totally redone by a great company. One of the workers came over, gave us an estimate even called us yesterday to tell us that he was able to get the insulation on sale and saved us quite a bit of money. As you can see the ceilings are very sooty.
This is the attic hatch in the garage. The fireman went up there to make sure nothing was damaged.
We FINALLY found a ceiling fan we both agreed on for our bedroom. Chuck spent more than a few minuted installing it yesterday. Most electricians, Chuck included, hate installing them. Very fussy. The average price here to install one is $200.00.
Interesting sky yesterday morning when we went out. We had quite a wind and rain storm last night/overnight. The wind woke us both up.
Many nuthatches around the yard. I was standing looking out an upstairs window when I saw this one on the tree. I ran downstairs, grabbed my camera and he was still on the tree when I got back.
This is our neighbours crabapple(?) tree. Lots of food for the winter for the birds.
Squeaky peering at me.
Friday morning sunrise.
Junco enjoying some sunflower seeds. Not for long.......
One of the baby squirrels pushed his way in.
Before the storm yesterday I put out lots of food for everyone. I also put out some dried cranberries for a change for the critters. One of the babies grabbed one and went and sat on the fence to savour it. He sat there for a couple of minutes enjoying it before finally finishing.
Busy day today as we have to remove everything from the garage and store it in the basement.
Sunny and cool this morning but at least we are not getting any snow like other parts of Ontario are today.
