What is with my neighbors and their home improvement projects that start at 7:30 AM on the weekends? This used to be such a quiet place, but now with yippy dogs that go on for hours, the sounds of construction, day laborers (and at night!) and such, it is almost impossible to just sit outside and enjoy the day. I find myself wishing for a house in the middle of nowhere, with no neighbors in sight, although that poses its own problem unless we go somewhere like Traverse City or the mountains in New Hampshire. Peace and quiet is priceless.
