 And so it begins.  I got my Staub pumpkins out this week. This is the summer I have been dreading for quite some time.  My entire house is being worked on.  Rotten wood and windows are being replaced and then the whole place will be painted.  What a job.  What is worse is that the workmen arrive each morning at 7:00 am so Teddy has to spend the next eight hours inside.  This means I get up at 3:00 am so she can spend four hours outside before they arrive.  Needless to say, I have a very early bedtime these days.  I've also been doing lots of inside projects to keep me busy and Fall decorating is one of them. So the pumpkins are out and they make me happy.

 Teddy is handling it better than I expected.  She keeps her eyes on the workers all day. When any of them come close to the window, she barks once.  Just to let them know she is watching. She seems rather entertained by it all.  I am expecting this will change when they are painting the windows.

 This side of the house had to be replaced along with all of the windows. Most of my back porch has been rebuilt too.

I put a few figures on my windowsill too.
It will be so nice to have it all done just in time for Fall.
