Having put Bella down for her morning nap, I was just starting to watch Miss Potter, and had just got through the almost half-hour of previews and was about ten minutes into the film, when a loud jackhammer started just outside the living room window. I hurried to the window and banged my forehead against the bottom of the raised pane. Looks like the gas company is doing some work in the road. In addition to the jackhammer, I spy a couple of trucks and a large backhoe.
A few minutes later, the doorbell rings. The guy from the gas company wants to check the basement for leaks. Fortunately all was clear. Unfortunately, he said he thinks it may take most of the day to complete the work. Guess I’ll have to postpone the movie.
I’m glad Bella’s room is on the side of the house away from the street.
