We have to be ready for the jack hammers. They need to drill out the tile on our back porch and they said it will shake everything up. We have to move some of the fragile stuff on shelves, cover up the breakfront to keep dust off, etc.
Spent some time looking at new ranges, too. My wonderful bike got a flat tire, and I had to get it changed. That is fine now.
It has been a drought in Chicago, but down here the old ladies are complaining about the landscaping because the bushes are growing so fast. They are above average in rain down here.
