September already?! Where does the time go?!
Earlier this year our condo building had some repairs done to the first floor balconies (ours included - we're first floor but sitting over an open garage). We were told it'd be done in a couple months and we should have our balcony back by the start of summer. Well summer came and almost went and we finally got our balcony back last month.
During the repair time they blocked off our access (railings came down so they boarded up across the door) and Darwin was not happy about it. In the summer's she's gotten used to having her bed put on and laying out in the sun. As soon as the weather warmed up she would stand at the door to the balcony and just look out longingly. She'd look back at us, with a face that said "why can't I go out there? Hello, it's sunny out!" I think she even whined a few times wanting her sun lounging time.
Finally they refinished the deck, installed new railings and took down the 2x4's.
Someone couldn't be happier.
