New Roof ...Yay!

We got a new roof Thursday.:) We really needed one and especially because of the storm that came through a few weeks ago .Remember the flooding in Georgia? Well..the wind and rain did damage and we had leaks.Plus a few hail storms didn't help any either! :) We noticed that several of the houses on our street were getting new roofs ..so Jim stopped by and talked to the roofer.He came to inspect ours and between him (the roofer) and the insurance guy..the decision was made.:) This pic is before the clean up.It's the back part of the house above the deck.:)
I have been keeping busy lately..paper scrapping ....transferring files....cleaning the house...watching roofers.LOL I have started an album of Christy.From the time she was born.I scanned her school pics too and am doing a progression album. I still enjoy paper scrapping!! I find the digital elements that I have collected over the years and then place the ones I want on a single sheet in my paint program and print them out to cut out for my pages. Some of the photos..I do digitally..(place the pic in the frame I like and print it out) ..then cut it out and place on my page.I also make cards using elements from my collections.:) I do the paper scrapping when my eyes get tired from looking at the monitor too long...and lately..that has been happening..so I will enjoy the hybrids for a while! :)
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!


Hugs,
Valinda

Hello Val
Wow, your roof is a lot bigger than the roof we have to replace! Must be a good feeling that it's all safe again! You asked me for some recipes, I don;t have really for some of the things I make, it's just on "touch"LOL. But I will try to put a few together and mail them to you. Don;t expect it to be soon! But I will try and if it takes too long, just remind me LOL!
Have a great day
Hugs

Holey, that must have been QUITE the storm, my friend! You would not be wanting to stand out in it if you had on a wig or toupe haha!

Did the leaks do any damage inside? I can remember as kids having to move pots and various containers around to catch the water. Not a recipe for a good nights sleep.

You and I are on the same page with cleaning up - are we getting ready for a loonnng and cold winter? I am glad its all done soon and I can snuggle up in the house and just chat with my dear friends from the comfort of my home... friends like YOU.

Thank you for being such a wonderful encourager to me, Valinda.

Hugs, Barb
