I was making pancakes this morning when Caden ran into the fabric yurt and whisper-yelled, “Dad just finished the roof!” And then demonstrated the hammer beat Josh used to pound in that last nail.
Soon Aria was awake, pancakes were eaten, and the three of them set off on a mackerel fishing expedition for the morning.
In the quiet that followed, I read the note Josh left on my desk:
30 1/4 square of shingles
=121 bundles of shingles
=about 8,000 of them tapered
=16,000 chopsaw cuts
=136,000 hammer swings
=hit thumb only 3 times
