Rain and garage door
And the handyman turned out to be a little less handy than previously advertised. After he departed, I suddenly realized I couldn't open the garage door. I figured he had either tried to "fix" it (it has never closed properly, but otherwise worked fine), or else he had FORCED it to close and something had "snapped", or whatever it is that garage door mechanisms do.
So I called and yelled at him to come and make it right. To his credit he came right away. He was strong enough to be able to get it open. But too strong, it seems. With one mighty push, he rolled it up and up and up and up ... yes, it just kept GOING, and the whole door crashed down INSIDE the garage!!!! What a noise it made!!! Astonishingly, nothing broken - not even a flower pot. But still....
More yelling ensued. Handyman was banished forthwith.
It was easier than I imagined to get it fixed properly. Turns out there are people who specialize in garage door repair, and mine wasn't anything unusual. The guy came within an hour, got it all rehung and working better than ever before. (It closes perfectly now.)
So today it's a glorious day and I spent all morning enjoying the garden, which looks better than it ever has, if I do say so. I must post some pictures... I will! I will!
But first... off to book club!
