Here we go again. Last month, or was it two months ago, we re-did one of our bathrooms so that Charlie had a walk-in shower / tub. Then we had to re-do the heating system and installed new ducting and AC. Now, we’re adding a patio enclosure / sunroom.
Two workers came last week and demolished — de-constructed — our patio cover. I have never seen a neater job of demolition. They also got rid of some of the brick-work where the new sunroom was going.
The next day two more workers came and poured concrete where the brick-work used to be. We now had a solid concrete slab for the sunroom. Rails for the walls and roof were also installed.
Yesterday work began on the sunroom itself. The following pictures are from yesterday and today. The guys work hard and clean up well.
While the work was going on in the backyard, I took my wife and one of her retired-teacher friends to a Christmas Lunch at her old school. After dropping them off, I drove back to HB. I stopped at TK’s for a “Big Bargain Special — hamburger and fries — and lunch at the beach. Parked at 17th and PCH and ate lunch on one of the concrete benches along the railing above the beach. Lord, what a beautiful day. Sunny, 62 degrees, a light breeze and clear as a bell. Ate lunch, took a walk to the water, snapped some pictures and read a chapter out of one of my three current books. A little after three o’clock, Charlie called and I went back to Santa Ana to pick her and her friend up and we returned home.
Just another almost perfect retired day in paradise.
Oh, yeah. Our gardener comes on Thursday — I don’t think he’ll get much work done in the back.
