The art of construction

Construction on our street
Barbara Muir ©️ 2021

The biggest news on Cherrywood is that the street is being in polite terms revamped. How
that plays out is that the street is being torn apart and rebuilt by very kind construction
people. From a sound point of view, it’s not that fun. 

It’s summer and on the better days we might like to spend some time outside. But maybe
not right now. I’ve had to tell our cat who loves lying on a chair on the back porch, that
evening seems to be the best time right now. 

 I thought I’d share some pictures with you to give you a better idea of what it’s like.

Wishing you a constructive day.

oh wow! that's difficult in this hot weather. Hope you stay cool - in many ways. ;)

Thanks Evelyn,

I guess it's better in hot weather than in cold. Thank you so much.
Working on staying cool. Love your art.

True Jennifer Rose,

And it gets worse every day. A 3 foot deep trench in front of our house today! Yes they have enough water. They
seem like great people.
