Another day of nice sunny mornings, with rain expected in the afternoon. I was telling a friend that this time seems harder with the neighbors son/family visiting as we have no end date that we can at least tell ourselves well, they will be gone on such and such date. I always find it so odd that their place to hang out is right out in front of the garage. Like here is this 5200 sf house, on 4 acres. The complete back of the house, with huge backyard and river view, has a huge nice patio at ground level and at the upper level, both all across the whole backside of the house. You'd think that would be the nicest place to spend time, LOL.
The other neighbor has not been back since his little bit of work he did last Wednesday. So odd. And while we have had rain, most of the days the morning and early afternoon are nice and sunny and then the afternoon/eve it rains. Saturday was no rain.
We finally got the bid from the fence guy on the extra gates at our piers and extending the fence. Ridiculous amount of $3400. He's charging half of what we paid to have the whole fence, a small gate and a big double metal gate at our shop entrance driveway. This bid is for 2 small gates and adding 60' of fence. We also still have not heard back from the asphalt sealing guy. Granted weather is playing a huge role in this job, but he could at least return dh's call. Contractors just make me want to throw up, at this point. Dh said no way on what that fence guy wants to charge. He said no one is worth $2500 for one days worth of labor for 2 guys. I don't make enough to cover wages like that to someone else!
Last night I remembered the final episodes of Manifest are on Netflix now, so I started watching that. Because I've got to know the why behind it all. It's been a mystery for several years now, haha. I'm finishing up one show on Apple tv and then I'll cancel that until some new seasons of all the shows I just watched come back on, which likely won't be for a year. By the time Severance comes back on, expected early 2024, that will have been almost 2 years wait. That's annoying.
