Yesterday was lawn mowing day for dh. He doesn't usually ever get started too early because we have to wait until the grass dew dries off, but he also likes to get out there as soon as he can, before it heats up and is too warm outside. I think it was around 10:30am when dh got started. Apparently he was interrupting neighbors DIL quiet time, sitting outside by herself in front of the garage drinking her coffee, LOL.
Ok....neighbors house? it's NICE. Like I said, it has a HUGE, all the way across the back of the house upper patio/deck and one below it on the ground. Completely private from us seeing them or from having to see cars drive by out on the main road. WHY do they like to sit in a lawn chair on the concrete in front of a garage door? I think I also mentioned that their garage is a side facing garage, so it faces our property. Their front door entrance area is kind of set back a bit. Mrs even has this lovely little landscaped area near the front door with a cute little bistro table and chairs. Very private and seems like it would be the perfect spot to sit and drink a cup of coffee, no? The back patios, upper and lower, have lots of seating and tables to use.
So while dh was mowing behind our shop, all alongside our property line/fence with neighbors her dh comes outside and dh could see out of the corner of his eye them having a discussion about something and him kind of shrugging and holding his arms up. Then she went back in the house. One can only hope they were having a discussion of when they are leaving, LOL.
I'm loving the suggestions for a new name for Construction guy! (that's too long to type out all the time, LOL). To keep it as an apronym, I think I'm gong to call him DAN (also kinda close to his real name)....Douchebag Asshole Neighbor....
DAN has been having our old Excavating guy (the guy we used for our build) bring him a few loads of gravel this past week. As Excavating guy was pulling out yesterday while dh was out front mowing he stopped to say hi to dh and they chatted awhile. E-guy says "he's just harmless". DH said no..he's an a-hole and told him about him wanting to build a 10,000 sq ft metal building and the fight the neighborhood had with him over it. Then E-guy said something interesting....that he thinks DAN is just putting this culvert and driveway access into to the property and then he plans on selling it. I wish dh would have asked "Did he tell you that??!", so dh isn't sure if E-guy was just making an assumption or it's something that DAN actually said to him. PRAYING that this is what will happen!! But not holding our breath, that's for sure. But it is really interesting, I think, that he has not had his well dug yet, after owning the property now for almost 2 years.
I was planning to go outside and cut all the dead iris blooms this morning, but it's raining. I'm glad I didn't chose this morning to go into the city, but tomorrow's weather doesn't sound much better. I have some old bananas, so I think I'll make a loaf or two of banana bread today. We sure haven't had our usual hot sunny weather this month.
