It's been fun getting into and out of the house because the driveway is the only decent path. I like to wear sandals when it's warm, and the wire mesh lurks to snare careless feet. To walk on it in sandals, I have to lift my feet straight up and place them straight down, making sure I step squarely on the mesh so it doesn't move.
There is a gate around the far side of the house, but it has not been used for at least a decade. To use it, one must wade through a wild patch of vinca to the gate, then traverse around the back of the house where the Engineer has been digging trenches.
The vinca patch worries me a bit because rattlesnakes come down from the hillside above the house in the fall and the vinca's a great place to hide. I'd really rather not have to wear hip boots to enter and exit my own home.
Monday morning, 6:00 a.m. the cement is supposed to be poured.
Is it even light then?
