My husband Curtis and I bought a new home last fall. Well, it’s not exactly new–just new to us. While it has gorgeous views of the Coast Mountains and Pacific Ocean, the house was entirely stuck in the 1980s. We knew we had our work cut out for us. So, we’ve been in the midst of a serious renovation project for months. And, finally, the typical rainfall of winter and spring in this coastal area slowed. It was time for a new roof.
Today, the roofers braved slippery moss-covered cedar shakes and hot sunshine to finish installing our new roof. We decided it was a great opportunity to show our thanks for all their hard work. We fired up the barbecue and I made some homemade iced tea. When they were ready for their lunch break we surprised them with some fresh, homemade fare on the picnic table. They were thrilled and so were we to see the way our home had transformed. (I’ll be sharing some of my best ways to make your next barbecue healthier in an upcoming post).
If you’re just joining us for the Kindness Revolution, I’m doing my part (well, at least trying) to spread kindness in the world by giving 29 gifts in 29 days, inspired by the book 29 Gifts. And, I’m asking you to join me. If you’re just tuning in, check out the first blog in this series.
And, don’t forget to add your comments to my blog over the next few weeks because, with the help of the kind people at Care2.com, I’ll be giving away more free copies of my books next Saturday! Winners will be selected from the comments!
