What woke me up this morning

I have problems falling asleep and staying asleep ... but I have no problem sleeping in on the weekends with Gord (so I take advantage of it to catch up on my sleep).

I woke up this morning about 9:00 to what sounded like a tank driving back and forth, back and forth in the parking lot outside our bedroom window.  Huh?

Then there was constant chip-chip-chipping at something outside our living room window.  I jokingly said to Gord that it sounded like they were on our terrace.

When I got up at 9:45am, I looked out our living room window and sure enough there was a guy on our terrace chip-chip-chipping at something.


I ducked out when he left for a while to see what was going on and saw that he had removed some bricks from the wall (and had swept up the mess).


They are doing the same next door.

And I can't yell at them for waking me up cuz it wasn't that early.  Ha!

Update:  The roof decks on the upper units have leaked for years ...the water has moved down through the units and apparently affected the integrity of the bricks supporting the outside stairs.

Any idea why he was removing bricks? A bit odd!

Maintenance, I guess.

LOL, pretty much anything after 8:30 is acceptable around here. But when I was in CA, they start work MUCH earlier....like before 7 am. They'd be out there mowing and fixing things at like 6:30 am!

That's super weird to just wake up to some random gentleman on your terrace removing bricks!

But at least you know WHY now ^.^
