A Freak Incident
Friday, June 20, 2014
Yesterday I awoke to DH's informing me something about broken glass--in my half-asleep state what he was trying to say didn't register; I thought something had happened in the pool area--but he said no, the deck! But when he said "the dogs will bleed" if we don't get it cleaned up, I immediately woke up.
Turns out a storm-related wind had apparently caught the umbrella on our glass-topped patio table and pitched it to the floor of the deck, causing the glass to shatter in about a million pieces.
What a mess! After cleaning up the bulk of the pieces, we were still faced with many that had wedged themselves in between the planks of the wooden floor. Later in the day son and I laboriously picked each fragment out, using tweezers and a screwdriver. Fortunately with two working the job was accomplished in a few hours.
Moral of the story: never get another glass-topped table! I'm planning to resurrect the old wooden picnic table that DH made a few years ago for the old house. I'll clean it up and paint it and not have to worry about glass again!
Beautiful day today--after shopping will try to get some biking and pool time in. Kids coming tomorrow, for grandson's birthday, so will be busy after today.
Oh, and Callie the outside/inside cat was temporarily lost last night--didn't appear at dinner time as usual--until I found her this morning locked in the room above the garage.
At least she was safe!
Happy weekend, all.
P.S. Lost another pound!
