High Winds, Big Waves

I read in the paper this morning that big waves were expected at the beach today, so I decided to take the kids down there to see them after lunch. I had no idea it was going to be so windy. I have never seen it this windy at the beach before. Sand was blowing everywhere! We didn’t stay very long because it was pretty miserable with all the blowing sand. The waves were big. Some of them were half-way up to the height the pier. If it hadn’t been so windy, I would have taken the kids for a walk on the pier. Instead, we left and went by 7-11 for slurpees.

Windows Delivered

The windows for the addition were delivered today. We will be adding five windows to our house. One for each of the two bedrooms, one for the office/study, one for the bathroom and one for the alcove playarea.

I talked with the contractor today and the framers will start work a week from Monday. By that time, the changes for the beam replacement should be back from the city. (The framers are currently on another job.) He expects it to take around a week for them to finish the framing. Before they are done, we need to pick out the tub and fixtures for the new bathroom.
