  1. House Progress

    September 27, 2010 by myeye

    Some parts of this moving adventure are very slow, but I have some great helpers making other parts streak along.  Jesus and his guys are almost done with the privacy fence.  Wednesday they will put wrought iron fence across the back edge so that I can (someday) look out on my personal meadow.

    Mike came over today and created enough of a ramp to the dog door that I can go to the office tomorrow without wondering if my dogs are okay.  They LOVE their door and ramp and have been racing out and back in all afternoon.  The ramp will have indoor/outdoor carpeting to give them even better footing.  Mike is making a second ramp for the whelping/new puppy room.  That dog door opens into a 10′ x 6′ covered pen.  We had to move some wiring which Mike did today, and he replaced an aerator on one of the faucets and will install a new kitchen faucet when he comes again.  Rudolfo and his son Roy installed the dog doors, and motion detector lights (front and back), set up the 10 x 6 pen, and changed my outdoor knobs and deadbolts.

    Haley and her brother came over yesterday and unpacked china and kitchen stuff.  So, here’s the dining room — the wine rack isn’t hung yet which explains all the wine glassed on the table.

    And then the sun went down and I remembered why I wanted to move to the country.  Please forgive the light spots — it was pretty dark when I took this.

  2. Weekend Learning the Outrun

    September 27, 2010 by myeye

    Chase is learning to go out before he selects the angle at which to approach his sheep.  Good job, Chaseman!  This was also the first time he’s worked in the rain.

    I love watching this boy smile as he learns!  By the way, Chase, your girl Leidy is so very pregnant!
