Random thoughts on a sunny Saturday morning:
1. The roof is already finished. It took only two days and they took it down to the original frame over our attic. They reframed everything to bring it all up to code and put down new dark charcoal shingles that look so fresh and current.
Who knew a roof could make such a difference?
2. Next week we are starting on the paint and the exterior and I need your help picking out a paint color. I’m thinking of white, but choosing a white can be a little challenging.
3. We went to see the new Jurassic Park movie last week for Father’s Day. I still haven’t recovered from seeing these GIANT cicadas swarm in the movie. Every time I hear that cicada noise?

5. And speaking of summer? How hot is it where you are? Texas is HOOOOOTTTTT. Dallas just tied a 111-year-old record for 100-degree days and it’s ONLY JUNE.
These are the days when I wish we had a pool.
I’m actually contemplating getting a blow-up pool just to sit it. 🙂
To take our mind off the heat? Here are some amazing ideas and inspiration I discovered for us this week.
