Hello everyone! I hope you have all been having a good week. We were blessed with a beautiful sunrise the other morning.
We have been very busy here. Dave and Jess’s renters moved out of their Madison house. They left the house in need of a lot of attention.
This is the inside steps going up to the bedrooms. We steam cleaned them Tuesday. They look much better now and are ready to be painted.
Everything in the house has to be steam cleaned and painted.
The floors have had to be scraped with a razor scraper.
Can you tell they smoked in the house?
We worked all day last Saturday and Sunday then all day on Tuesday. We have gotten a lot done. Dave’s sister is coming up in the evenings and working on the painting. It is already looking a lot better. Hopefully it will soon be ready to rent again.
On Monday, we worked on cutting the willow trees and getting them out of the duck lot. A neighbor came and cut them for us while Grace and I moved them.
We have two piles that will need to be split. I think we can split these with our little splitter. The bigger ones we just rolled over to the side. They were too heavy for us to move.
We also have two piles of limbs to burn.
The duck lot looks so different with the trees gone. I hated to see them go. I got the original start from George’s mom when we moved up here. It was a full day’s work but the ducks are very happy to have their lot back. We are so thankful to live in a community where neighbors take the time to help each other.
We had some snow yesterday. Very exciting. Nothing really laid on but it was beautiful to watch. We are supposed to get our first big snow over the weekend. We’ll see how it goes.
Some of Grace’s latest art work. This one she did by hand. I love all the colors.
This one she did on her computer. It’s CHRISTMAS! I think she has so much talent.
And a picture to show how much the cats are growing.
I guess that’s about all. Grace and I are hoping to put up some decorations today and maybe even the tree. We’ll see. Whatever we don’t get finished with today hopefully we can finish over the weekend. If it snows like they are predicting, we won’t be working at the Madison house.
