So, it’s been almost a whole month since the 65ft. pine tree fell on our roof and patio set–knocking three holes in the roof. My husband and I were EXTREMELY fortunate to be unharmed, since we were laying in bed at the time and the tree put the holes in our roof right above our heads. As happy as we are, the tree is STILL there. We still have no power to our master bedroom or master bath. The roof is still not fixed. But you know what? It’s okay. I realize how incredibly blessed and fortunate we are to live in a country where we have access to insurance, fair construction workers, and gracious neighbors.

Hopefully tonight, if all things go according to plan, the roof will be fixed! Our construction guys are supposed to come tonight and get it all fixed in one go. They only have to re-do the slope of the roof where the tree put the holes in. The rest of our roof seems to be in good condition. I don’t know if the tree will be taken out soon, but at least we’ll tentatively have power in our bedroom again!

I am super excited. Candles in the dark are super romantic and all, but showering with only dim natural lighting through closed blinds is getting kind of old–especially since I’m mostly blind already.

I know I’m not writing about a ton of “writerly” things today, but this has been on my mind a lot. I hope you are all enjoying your Friday!
