Summer Morning Wake-Up

Gary and the guys arrived at about seven and  are here to put the shingles on the porch roof, and maybe trim around windows and siding on.  Yay!!  I have been working on the website for the family history day in Concord in October this morning since I need to go live with it on the 30th.  We shall see. I am worn out and really just want to take a nap at the moment.  Maybe I will. 

Oh, a sort of funny thing happened a while ago.  Well, not even sort of funny...really a mean thing but unintentional.  I woke up at 5:41 this morning and started in doing stuff.  After a long time I was washing dishes and remembered the new glasses I purchased at the Salvation Army store yesterday so I went out to the truck to get them.  I used my new (since I lost my key ring that had the truck keys on it) truck key to open the door.  Well, it set the alarm off.  That lasts for 1-2 minutes.  Quite annoying.  No way for me to turn it off before its time.

It was very quiet in the neighborhood but I did not think about it.  I had not heard the dogs bark this morning....they always go out by 6:30 AM and sometimes earlier and bark for 15 minutes or so...annoying Bob to no end.  Well, unintentially I guess I fought fire with fire, or noise with noise in this case, and wrecked the pristine loveliness of a quiet summer morning.  The screaming of the truck alarm really sets the teeth on edge. 

When I got back inside with all my bundles, I found the clock was still in the 6 AM hour.  Oh well.  I have never been known as a good neighbor anyway...and maybe they had slept through their alarm clocks?
