I was awakened by the sounds of dump trucks and heavy equipment banging about in the street outside my windows. This was followed by jackhammer and cement saw noises.
Shortly thereafter there was a knock on my door. It was Chris, my long, tall oldest grandson. My gosh, but that boy is tall! He is working with the excavation crew outside my building today. They are tearing up the street in order to run new water and sewer lines into the building next door. Which explains why my landlord let us know our water will be shut off all afternoon.
Anyway, Chris wanted to pop in to give his Grandma a hug and to wish her a happy birthday. (Yep - 72 years have come and gone already). He couldn't stay very long. He was on the clock, after all. But when it comes to the grands, I will take every minute that I can!
I just can't think of a better way to start the day.
