The Team Is Sparkly

My sister and her girl friend came over today and helped me hang some Christmas lights. Kel played golf on this somewhat rainy day. It did not rain while we were hanging lights and no adults were electrocuted nor fell off the roof during our adventure.
Usually we hang the icicle lights. I have a ton of them. This year I wanted something different. Blue and white. So off to target to buy something I really don't need, but I feel that every little stimulation to the economy that I do has got to be a good thing. I got the task (it is my house after all) of climbing on the roof. Eve said that me crawling on the roof was the scariest thing she's ever experienced. Since she has lived in Israel and been in the military, I was impressed with my ability to scare someone. I thought living on the edge was pretty good. I would not have tried this last year before we replaced all the rotting wood and put a new roof on. This year, I felt very confident that nothing bad would happen.
My only regret is that I didn't call Laura P. up and tell her I was on the roof. That would have brought the giggles for sure... Well, if I'd started giggling, then I might have truly been in trouble.
