When I came home last month, I was trimming the lilac bush & noticed that that it had several shingles in the branches. I thought 'Some poor bugger had lost their shingles with the strong winds we had been having'. Well the next day I was coming up the hill, on our street with Bill & saw...that poor bugger was me! The west side of the house had shingles lifted everywhere!!
The next day Home Depot had the 'Don't pay for 18 months' promotion come through the mail & Bill & I were on it & headed to the Home Depot. A week later a sales person did the estimate & a week later the job started.There was over a foot of snow to be shoveled of the roof, then the layer of old shingles were removed. The whole process with all the snow was frightful for me watching these boys do their job.
After they had left & everything was quiet again, Boris wanted out & I opened the door & let him out. I realized that he didn't want back in after a few minutes, where was he?
The other gate was left wide open & packed tight with snow from the four workers & their wheel barrow. Boris had an opening out, I found him out front sniffing all the workers supplies that were left for the next day.

December now begins, this is the best time of the year! I love Christmastime & my Sirus XM Radio is now on the Holly channel, only Christmas music with NO advertising or annoying announcers.
:-) I`ve been making Rumballs & have more batches of raisins soaking in rum for more sharing of these yummies. Mitchell, your Rumball tin has been sent out & do share & eat responsibly, those raisins were plump with rum before I blended them into the other ingredients. Enjoy!
Let the festivities begin!
