    The dining room furniture I ordered May 30 is to be delivered Saturday. Fingers crossed it's not damaged or missing anything.

    I'm planning to go to costco tomorrow to get paper towels and toilet paper. We've got enough of each for maybe another 3-4 weeks. I assume it will be feast or famine.

    I have not noticed a shortage of toilet paper or paper towels.

    As noone knows all that is causing supply chain problems (well covid is probably part of it) but some say it's just people buying a record amount of stuff, people need to stop buying so much cr@p, or if they can't do that, at least spread the buying out over many months.

    Congrats, beckyliz!!!! Crossing fingers that it all arrives in perfect condition!


    The decking for our porches has finally come in!! The guys have been working all week on the patio, side paving, and have started tearing out boards on the first porch. (They did leave the flooring right in front of the door, as there is no other access at the moment - lol)

    I'm soooo excited! As I posted previously, this is the first major bit of work we have done on this house in decades! I don't remember where I posted the picture of the deck being removed, but I'll post a pic of the new patio in Housing - once it is complete. I'm thinking/hoping everything will be done in a week!

    Interestingly enough there is no covid test required from US citizens/permanent residents when returning to the US as a pedestrian. Rob

    Happy, looking forward to seeing the finished deck. I am not stocking up because if everyone does that there will definitely be shortages.
