My hill, off in the distance from our house, is changing daily. The contractors have blasted and moved dirt and rocks daily for most of the winter, really only pausing in their progress for a handful of days during the few snow-days we had this past winter. I am not seeing any structures yet, but I see a constantly changing horizon, with the mound of earth looking more and more like Roseberry Topping in Yorkshire every day. It’s been fun watching it change so often, and as long as I don’t have to see structures on it, I’m happy. A few times, the blasting they’ve done has made our house shake, but otherwise they are not bothering us too much.
Just thought I’d update you on the progress of the hill.

In other news, springtime jobs are progressing also here at Crow Cottage.
Paul tried to go out lobstering this morning but, alas, the nor’easter we recently had played havoc with the ocean, and it’s still not calm enough for a day of lobstering. He retrieved four of his traps on the beach that had washed up ashore, with fairly minimal damage, and today he will set about trying to repair them and get them back into working order to be deposited into the ocean again.
I love it when he finally gets back to work after the winter hiatus. He hates to be cooped up in the house, and he can start getting a paycheck once again! Always a good thing that – getting paid!

Back to work for me. It’s been a very busy time for me lately, so not much time leftover for chatting here. I’m hoping to grab a week’s holiday maybe in July, if things pan out. Oh, that would be nice.
Cheerios and happy Friday,
