Brakes and Breaks

Today the rain is pounding on the roof and creating quite a racket in here. Of course, with every different sound I feel the need to check for leaks in the roof, even though it's covered with the rubber roofing sealant.

Closing in on summer

I sit here this morning with the windows wide open, my toes a little chilled, and hot coffee in my hand. Can it really be that we are entering the second week of June? I check out the upcoming forecast and I see that the temperatures are rising into the nineties in the next day… Continue reading Closing in on summer
