Maybe we will make o.k parents

We re-potted our nearly dead plant, and -

It's alive!

And, the green thumb must be contagious, because the plant on our patio that we had written off for dead after it lost all of its leaves and showed no signs of life for about 2 months, has survived. About 2 months ago leaves started coming back - although, only on half of it (the other half, the right side of the photo, is most certainly dead). Then this week, color:

We have a wall

After nearly a month, many phone calls, the repairs are finished (we hope), and we have a wall. It was a bumpy ride though. During the repairs on the back part of the roof, they knocked our a/c out on two different occasions. Then, partway through the work, it rained and we had a water leak around the vent fan in the master bathroom. So, they had to reseal that part of the roof. Then, after they put the sheetrock up and spackled everything, it rained and the spackle was mushy. It doesn't look like they got the leak around the window (that led to the wall being torn out in the first place) done. Of course, it hasn't rained a whole lot, so, it is hard to say if all of the leaks have been taken care of. But, we have a wall. The carpet looks like it will clean up o.k., so, our next step is to paint the wall. Until then, here's what it looks like:
