This week we're getting the house in order, literally and figuratively. We're having some work done on the house and the contractor should begin work by the end of the week, so here are a couple "before" pictures. The vinyl siding is coming off and clapboard is going up on the back and front. We're getting some new windows, patio door and a deck built off the back of the house. It'll be a big difference, and something that we've been putting off and saving up for a couple of years.
We're also getting our estates in order. A friend of ours took on his own law office on November 1st. We've known John Taylor-Hood for years and have used him whenever we need a lawyer. In celebration of taking over the practice he's having a two-for-one Will deal during the month of November. There's an extra discount for craft producers in the province (I served with his wife, Vicky, on the executive of the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador). So Lori and I are getting our wills done up and getting an extra pair for her parents for Christmas. I remember when a friend was someone who sat next to you on the school bus, now its someone who'll execute your will for you.
