Time is on our side
The guy that built the structure used nothing but nails to do the frame. Subsequently, our main tools yesterday were a framing hammer and a 36" crowbar. We would remove a board and then take the time to remove the nails. What I discovered, after several hours of using the framing hammer to pull the nails, was that the crowbar offers much better leverage. It was almost no work at all to remove a nail with it.
"Chick-a-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee," we answer back.
Very quickly the bird will appear, park on a nearby branch, and then hop onto the edge of the palm and select its treat.
tweet-tweet, it chirps as it flies away with peanut pinched in its beak.
I have not written much about my sleep issues. When we go to bed, I typically read for a few minutes and then fall into a quick and deep sleep, for a few minutes. Then my legs start to ache and I have to get up and do something: read a book or watch a show. Munching on whatever is available is usually part of the routine. In normal times - in Okotoks - I'd be up and moving by 6 am, having had 4 or 5 hours of sleep. While I got up several times last night, watching Shawshank Redemption on my iPad, I didn't wake up until 7:30 am, the latest I've slept in for years. That's a good thing, as I needed the extra sleep. My nagging headache from yesterday is gone.
