I am happy to report that I am back to blogging duty!   Although I may not have recovered 100% from the back pain (there are still some small muscle spasms that let me know to take it easy), I can say that I am 99.999528 percent over the miserable head cold that plagued me for a week.

And I had some great help from Thor who had tissue duty every time the snot factory kicked into high gear.

OK, onto the “shed” progress update.

The rest of the shingles were installed on the roof *happy dance*.  Rick had just enough material to complete the project and now we can move onto more exciting things, like siding and interior walls.

And while Rick was doing his carpenter shtick, we had a young man come over and clear the yard of leaves.

This kid really worked his heart out!  For 2 days straight he hauled countless loads of dead leaves to any out-of-the-way-spot there was to dump them.  I especially liked his technique of using 2 rakes to scoop and dump.

Of course he was fed lots of good foodies to keep up his strength, and I later heard from his sister that he bragged about the roast beef sandwich he had with homemade bread (he was trying to make her jealous… gotta love siblings!).

And speaking of good foodies, I tried another new *gasp * muffin recipe the other day that I found on Pinterest.  I won’t go into all the details right now, but two of the ingredients were carrots and cream cheese.  If you’re thinking what I think you’re thinking, you may be a little surprised when I make the grand reveal later this week.

Have a Happy Monday all!
