Garden

100_9928

I thought I would share with you all a picture of the lower garden.  It is doing pretty good.  The upper garden is having a little more of a difficult time.  We are having trouble keeping the calves out of it.  They seem to find new ways to get out every day and seem to enjoy the corn in the upper garden very much.  Shadow is getting too old to chase them and Jasper is just learning.  He is on the accelerated learning program right now as I want him to learn quickly.  He actually is getting much better.  He “sometimes” listens and obeys commands.  Sometimes he is just so happy that the calves are running from him, he doesn’t care where they are running.  Oh well, that’s life on a farm.

I helped Hubby today at the farmhouse job.  We thought we would start on running the pipes for the plumbing.  However, the walls in the bathroom were in terrible shape, so we started tearing out the sheetrock in there.  We will be running the pipes up and over the ceiling as there is not enough crawl space underneath.   These older homes were built right down on the ground.  The bathroom has a rock type flooring on it and the owners are wanting to keep it.  This suits me just fine as I was not looking forward to trying to crawl under that floor.   The girls worked on history and science while I was helping Hubby.    We had brought our portable grill with us and did  a picnic for lunch.  We had hot dogs, potato chips and oreo’s.  The lunch of champions.  It was fun.  We set up under a huge walnut tree and were entertained by a very friendly squirrel while we ate.  I brought the girls home after lunch.  They did the house chores while I went back to help Hubby.  It was a full day. 

I hope you all have a great evening and God bless. 

 

Update on Job Site

Hello everyone!  I know it has been several days since I made a post.  First off, my blog was down for a few days. Thanks to David, I am now back up and running.  Second, we have been pretty busy here.  I thought I would share a few pictures of how the progress is coming on Hubby’s job.

We tore up the flooring in the livingroom.  It was in pretty bad shape.

The floor joists were sitting down on the ground.  Of course, there is only one way to fix that.

This was our progress as of Monday evening.  Tuesday the girls and I had to go to C-burg so I didn’t get to help (too bad, right!)  Hubby did finish moving the dirt out of this section.  Next we will tear up the other side of the floor and do the same thing again.  It is hard work but exciting.  The house is really starting to take shape.  Today, I helped him hang sheetrock on another job.  Thank the Good Lord, work seems to be picking up some for us.  We are SO thankful!

The girls working on school work.  Homeschool is so much fun.  We can take it with us wherever we go.

I thought I would show you all what damage termites can do.

We will be replacing these pieces of wood with blocks.  Tuesday when we went to C-burg we stopped by the Horn’s for a visit.  They had a great surprise.

Baby Ducks!!!  Their mama duck had just hatched 16 baby ducks.  It was very exciting.  We had a nice visit and Vicki helped me (actually she did all the work) list some school books on Ebay to sell.  Thanks again, Vicki.

Today has been wet and chilly here in Floyd.  When we came home from hanging the sheetrock, I built a fire to take the chill out of the house.  Wet weather seems to make the house feel colder.  Well, I think that about catching up all we have been doing.  I hope you all have a good evening and God bless.

Laundry Room

We finally have the time and money to begin framing our new laundry room.  Hubby had put down new flooring for it earlier in the summer.  Then work stopped for a while.  Yesterday we framed it up.  Today we will be going to get the OSB for the walls and begin putting them up.  I am so excited.  Hopefully, we will be able to get it done before it gets too cold to work on it.  We will be moving the washer and dryer out in this room.  Hubby is also putting in a small bathroom area.   One bathroom is hard sometimes.    Our laundry room now is very small and crowded.  It will be so nice to have extra room.  We had a really nice day yesterday to work.  It was a little windy, kept blowing away our tools, but other than that really nice.

Beautiful sunshine.  Temperature in the upper 60’s.  A really nice day.  Well, I better get busy.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
