We had another busy weekend at the new house. The sheetrock is up, and needs only about one more round on mudding and sanding.

It’s pretty crazy to see walls after all this time. It’s a little easier to start seeing rooms now, what they’ll maybe look like when we’re finished.

We worked on the back porch ceiling this weekend. We put up pine tongue and groove. It took us awhile on Saturday to figure out how we really wanted to do it.

We finally decided to run it vertically.  I measured and cut, and Mike put it up.  He made a little work table for me so I had a place for everything I needed so it was very efficient.  He’s very good to me :-).

On Sunday we finished up.  Pretty good looking if I say so myself.

As usual we had a great time.  My step-dad stopped by to tell us it was too cold to be out and we should rest sometimes.  He does this most weekends :-). 
We got home and I bathed the two beasts while Mike gave their crates a good scrubbing.  Everyone is all sweet and clean now.  Well, one is clean (weird little thing, he chews on his towel after his bath until he gets into some trancelike state.  He’s 8 years old, always done it).

He’s a Bold One

He doesn’t even try to hide and do it anymore. When I pick, he picks.

Well the tree line/underbrush clearing is done! After many hours of hard work, we can actually walk/see through the treeline. Not that I’ll probably be doing much walking in there now. Last weekend we parked the truck up under the trees, let the tailgate down for a place to sit and cool off, and went to work. We got a lot accomplished. At one point when I took a tailgate break to cool off, Mike decided to join me. As he walked up, he said in his ever calm, quiet voice, “Hey, why don’t you come over here and stand by me for a minute?”. As I slowly got up and walked toward him I said “There’s a snake over my head isn’t there?” — to which he repied “Yes”. Sure enough, as I looked up, there it was…all 5 or so feet of it. Don’t know how I knew that…just did. We let him be, went back to work and finished up. When we went back to the truck to leave, he had moved on. (Be sure to click on the images to enlarge them and see his little head raised and looking around)

Now it’s time to build a fence…I’m thinking fall…I’m sure Mike is thinking next weekend!
