Full Up!

I really try to avoid drama although sometimes it appears in my life despite my best efforts. Life seems to cycle through people "like sands in an hourglass"..ha ha (reminds me of a soap from long ago)! My life used to be a soap opera a lot of the time but I like to think that I have out grown that. In the last couple days I have come to realize that people I held as important do not have the same feeling toward me. I have known them for the better part of 20 years so this one hurts to my heart. I have been struggling with this for the last five years really and in the last few days have realized that loving them for so long sometimes we have to let them go. I believe that is really what they want anyhow. I feel that they have no need for me anymore...so like a mother bird letting her young go I say "Fly baby Fly". Maybe now they won't feel so obligated to me. I am letting ya off the hook if that was all you needed wish you had told me sooner. May you will find the happiness you are both looking for and May God Bless Your Lives For Eternity. I personally would like to thank you both for what you have given of yourself when I most needed it and it will never be forgotten. Where one journey ends another begins.......

Shop Updates:

Trusses will be available Monday...weather pending on delivery. We are gathering the man power to get in here to set the trusses later in the week. So exciting!!

FIL and Mtn Man got together couple days ago and finished the plastic wrap on the shop to save it from the pending weather. Mtn Man was much happier when that job was completed. He wanted to start moving his stuff in ASAP! Like telling a kid to wait on ice cream!

 Goaty Goats


Besides being a bit dirty from winter...they are doing fabulous! I walked the field to measure it out for fencing in the next month or so. Hope to get it fenced before the babies arrive at the end of March! Crossing my fingers and toes!
*******************************************************************************
It is maple syrup time here in the valley...thought I would share some pics from the neighbors operation. They tell me it takes 40 gals of sap to make one gallon of syrup! Boggles my mind! I really want to make some syrup and I might yet towards the middle to the end of Feb. They tell me that is the best time for flavor and color.


********************************************************************************
Last but not lest we worked on the Ol Barn today! My goodness they knew how to build in those days. Even though some of the wood is rotting the good parts did not want to let go so easily. We took the logs apart one at a time sometimes two but mostly one at a time! Using our tractor I lifted Mtn Man up with a large rope he tied around the logs then lowered him to the ground. With the rope attached to the log and then the tractor we backed up and pulled them down. We got about half of the barn logs down and stacked in a pile. Hopefully this next week we will manage to finish the demolition project in between setting trusses maybe.


 Watch for Mondays updates will be more on the barn demolition!

Toodles.... Be sure to take a few minutes for the Man who gave you life and I don't mean your sperm donor... He dearly loves to hear from ya!

Creating Happiness

For others. Melinda over at Country Dreaming has for the last few years been participating in a card shower for kids who are in a hospital local to her. This year I decided I wanted to participate too! I have been having so much fun with this. I went and bought a whole bunch of goodies and construction paper. And off I went to making cards! Having a blast!

I believe I will do this next year!
****************************************************************************
Farm Update:
Well today we went up and hooked the log splitter up. The weather is fixin to change so we needed to stock up on the wood again.


 Mtn Man started in on splitting while I went over and fixed the temp shed we made. Bought a long tarp to fit over the whole thing

Big Ol Barn

Our neighbors next year owns three structures that lived through the civil war. The rest in the valley were burned to the ground. One of those very structures is the barn we are disassembling a piece at a time. This barn was built in 1844. The workmanship is amazing to have lasted this long. It had been added to many years later. We are working on the original structure now. What a neat piece of history right here in our "back yard". We have been told that this area we live in was once the dividing line between the North and the South, right here in this little ol valley. Reverend Pinkney Graham (1812-1877) owned this land that all these structures are on and was well respected in these parts. So during the civil war his lands were spared from the destruction.
Enjoy the pics this will be last time this barn will be standing. We hope to be able to salvage some of the logs to make a smaller structure to stay on the  neighbors farm.

Breakfast Out & Work Day


 Breakfast At The Bistro

Mtn Man took me out for breakfast at our local restaurant. Very good food! If you find yourself in the area of Marquand be sure to stop and have a bite!! 
******************************************************************************

The shop progression over the last few days is amazing! It has taken on a whole nother look! Thank you DS our "Human Monkey" and FIL for all your help on this project thus far!
I catch Mtn Man looking out the window peering at his shop. I think he is a bit excited about his over size dog house! LOL! Man Cave! LOL! Whatever you want to call it...his dream come true! Maybe now he will be able to find his tools when he needs them instead of "honey do you know where I put ....?" LOL! You could say I am excited too!
Within 2 wks we will have the trusses and then they can lay the roofing. In the meantime, we will cut the siding on the mill out of pine so it is ready. Finish up a couple outside projects like the barn salvage job across the field from our place and cutting up logs into usable lumber for a neighbor. And get the "bats" done for the goat shed so I can finish it finally!
Ok without further wait here are the pics.....





 
 


 













 



















We have been very thankful for the nice weather to get this far!

A row of plastic on the top will finish this job until the roof is applied. Thanks again guys!


 *******************************************************************************
Off to the mill we go to cut up some lumber.... Have a Wonderful Weekend!
