Even Giddier

I think I just made up a word.


The more I read it, the more
it doesn't feel like a real word.
Don't you hate it when that happens?

But I can't think of a better word,
so I'm sticking with it.

More stones are up,
and I am even giddier 
than I was before
and I was pretty 

Except for mortaring the pillars,
the stone layers are finished 
with the outside of the house.

In a few days
after the mortar is 
completely dry,
they will return and wash 
all the dust off the lovely stones.
I hope by then,
all of the cedar trim will be 
stained and up.

It will be a day of celebrating


  1. Beautiful!!! I can't wait to see it in person.

  2. Mary Beth! It's beautiful! How exciting. Can't wait to see more progress.

    In answer to your question on the suitcases. I really don't know. I've never had any that were musty. Have you tried Febreze or something like that?

  3. Oh - and I think Giddier is definitely a word - at least in my dictionary. :-)

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
