Diary #640

We’re down to the last part of building the stable, just in time for the return of the rain (probably in a week or so);  Jae’s patron brought a roofing nail gun, which really sped up the job of getting the shingles on.  So even though I am really, really sick of getting up on rooves, at least I was able to get both sides done in alittle over four hours.  Jae’s patron also hired a young man to help, and he installed the flashings while I came behind with the shingles, then he closed up the gables and kept me supplied with shingles.  Not having to climb up and down over and over made the job a lot less exhausting, not to mention quicker, and now the only thing we have left to do is the siding and whatever details we need to add inside.  And that’s good, because even though I will do what must be done, right now I’m really pretty fixated on getting the bathroom functional in time for it to be useable by holiday guests.


I find paywalls distasteful, and so many people find this blog valuable as a resource I just can’t bring myself to install one.  Furthermore, I find ad delivery services (whose content I have no say over) even more distasteful.  But as I’m now semi-retired from sex work, I can’t self-sponsor this blog by myself any longer.  So if you value my writing enough that you would pay to see it if it were paywalled, please consider subscribing; there are four different levels to fit all budgets.  Or if that doesn’t work for you, please consider showing your generosity with a one-time donation; you can Paypal to maggiemcneill@earthlink.net or else email me at the same address to make other arrangements.  Thanks so very much!
