The peak is painted!

I thought this day would never come and it almost didn't today.  It sprinkled on and off all day. Finally I primed and then it sprinkled.  So we moved on to other 'To Do List' items.  Then as we were finishing up for the day I decided that the sky looked less dark than it had earlier, so I grabbed my paint brush and put on the final coat of grey.  You might also have noticed that we added another row of shingles at the very peak.  Once it was primed, we realized that there was enough room for one more row of shingles.

We also installed the storm window hinge part that attaches to the window trim.  This will speed up the storm window installation.  The window box and brackets were also reinstalled.  The shutters and window box will help break up that huge field of grey.
I also took this photo just for Alex.  Look!!! No flip flops.
The kitty in the photo is Morrie. He was born in our barn 1 1/2 years ago.  We are looking for a good home for Morrie. He is very very lovable and loves to sit in your lap and sleep.  There is not a mean bone in his body.  He would be perfect for an older person or couple.  Plus, he's quite the talker and answers to his name.   If anyone knows of a good home for Morrie,  please let us know.
