It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Construction goes on. And on.

Darcy confronts The Machine.

It’s a grader. Is this a sign we’re nearing the end? This is one time I’m grateful for the onset of winter: they’ll have to be done by then!

  1. Hah! You think that they have to be done by winter, but do they?

  2. Oh, hush, you! OF COURSE they’ll be done. They’re always done by winter. Always. Don’t even think otherwise. I simply won’t have it.

    Though of course, if they’re not, it won’t make a whole lot of difference once it’s all covered with a coupla feet of snow, anyway.

    But spring sure would stink.

  3. are houses being built in your neighborhood? we’re getting 5 new homes across from ours. yay? yes and no. the dust, noise and eye sore i can do without. more kids syd’s age would be very nice. things are at a stand still right now. something about waiting for some permits to go through. they gave a very optimistic deadline of 3 to 6 months when they started. WHAHAHAHA! snort! sorry. couldn’t control myself.

  5. jungs: No, not new houses. This area is quite old (by Canadian standards, at any rate!). The house we live in was built around 1912. The newest house on our street was built in the late sixties, I think.

    The street has been torn up since the beginning of May in order that the water and sewer mains be replaced. They’re all done, and the sidewalks are completed, too, and now we’re eagerly – and with increasing impatience – awaiting the new street, and the end of the construction!

    crayons: Oh, he was all set to march right across the next intersection and into the path of it. Like Moses, I think he assumed the sea would part before him. Mary, she of little faith, prevented him from trying it out!
