Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!

Happy March! The weather aligns with a meme I saw recently - This time of year is so difficult; it is like winter and spring are fighting for custody. So true! My azaleas have all come into bloom, and then we get a freeze. Most seem to have weathered it pretty well.

The saga with the roof continues. The roofers decided to abdicate their responsibility and wanted to give me $2,000 and have me sign a release and I could do the inside repairs myself. Given that I had no idea how extensive the damage was or what the repairs would cost, I refused. I filed a claim with my homeowners' insurance and the adjuster came out and found not only did the water damage the ceiling and the walls, it also went under the floor and ruined the laminate flooring The total damage is now over $5K. I must completely empty the bedroom of everything in there because the west side of the room has to be demolitioned - two walls, ceiling, and flooring - and then rebuilt. My bed will be in the living room while this is going on, like camping out in a studio apartment. My insurance company will go after the roofing company to get their money back. My contractor will be coming out this week with a bunch of sub-contractors to get bids for the various parts of the job.

In light of the uncertainty of my home situation, the March movie event may be at my house, or it may be at Doug's house. We won't know for sure until we have a better handle on the timeline for the repairs to my house. Stay tuned for details in this on-going saga. Kind of reminiscent of the old Saturday afternoon serial dramas, isn't it?

As I am clearing things from the bedroom, I am also taking advantage of the opportunity to shed things I do not use. One item I have is a 20-pound weighted blanket, not sure if it is queen or full size, but it is dark grey and looking for a new home. Have you always wanted to try a weighted blanket but found the price a bit off-putting? How does free sound? If free sounds good to you, let me know and I will happily give it to you. It is nearly new; I have only had it for 2 months and only used it for one week before determining it wasn't the right weight for me. Sound interesting? I would love to find it a good home!

Our first event is this coming Sunday, a lunch at Azu followed by a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright Spring House. We'll also return to Willie Jewels for a delicious meal as our monthly dinner gathering, and then the movie event. Two months in a row we have watched movies that left me helpless with mirth - one of my favorite conditions!

Hope to see you at an event soon.
