We had a slow moving day for the most part. We went out for breakfast/lunch to Mimi’s and had our usual including Mimosa’s. Surprised huh?
Next we stopped by the house and they were working! We have a roof… almost!
The windows for the dining room (2 on the left side) don’t look quite right but since they’ve asked us not to enter the house while being worked on we decided to stop back by later.
We then drove to South Charlotte to ride the CATS light rail (LYNX) into Uptown to attend the Taste of Charlotte festival. We figured parking might be expensive or hard to come by and we’ve been wanting to ride the light rail for quite a while. We actually enjoyed the ride in.
The light rail dropped us just a few blocks from the festivities which was 4 blocks worth full of vendors.
Food is purchased with “coins”.
and eventually I stopped taking pictures so as to conceal the evidence.
Jim and I split everything we had so we could taste more. Most of it was quite yummy.
It was hot out, but not Florida hot and I was thankful for that. I think I had a layer of sweat on my head but managed not to drip all over. That’s a good thing in my book.
Here’s a bunch of other photos. If you don’t care, scroll down a bunch to get to the completed roof photos of the house:
Above: This photo was intended for a few specific readers who I also have a friendship with on Facebook. Several posts ago, friends spotted the portapotty in front of the new house and comments were tossed around about being a guest bathroom. I took the above photo in mind to play off that with creative captions like “Jim checks out alternative guest bath options”. It just didn’t happen.
Good times! We spent $40! Ugh.
Lastly we stopped back by the house again and the roof was complete:
We haven’t been able to explore the upstairs yet since there’s no ladder or stairs for us.
