The house is relatively quiet at the moment as everyone is pursuing the various tasks or projects that they are working on. Momma spent this morning cleaning out the bathroom closet (preparations to put in "new" shelves this week), so I took Sawyer over to Bull Run as a diversion for him.
Things are really "hopping" over there!
Don't you just love the color of Trevor's house?! We're so pleased with how homey and refreshing it turned out..... NOT! This is just the primer, the real color comes next! I'm calling his house "the jelly bean", as it reminds me of those lime green candies, until the painter puts the finish coat on!
"Twevor, can you ooopen duh door fuh me?"
Trevor spent yesterday and today working on his front porch. I must say that the railing and steps make the place look more like a home.
It has been about a month since I have been inside the house and I was amazed to see how much has been done! The last time I was inside, the drywall had not been hung... I was surprised to see that the drywall didn't make the house feel smaller; if anything it defined where the rooms will be.
I've been hearing stories about how the cows follow Tristan around, but I had yet to see it myself until this morning. He was in the field that he is currently fencing in, and "the girls" were all clustered around his truck waiting for him to show up (the truck is parked right in front of an electric tape "gate"). As soon as he brought the tractor into their field, they started running around and kicking up their heels! It was so funny to see and revealed allot about how he has been taking care of them! In the picture both Tristan and "the girls" are clustered around little Bee-Moo who is doing rather poorly; he's been moved into a new field and put on some grain so that he can regain his strength.
Here on the home front, Daddy has been working here in the Stone Room today, sanding, filling holes, and getting the place ready for painting.
The past few days have held some unexpected events for me...
My cross-stitch was picked up from the framers this past week. I am so pleased with how it turned out! Now I need to find another cross-stitch pattern to work on. :o)
I stepped out of my room for one minute, and when I returned this is what I found! In the space of time that it took me to run downstairs for a bag, Sayre managed to place this "dummy" on my bed amidst the cross-stitch, books, patterns, boxes (which I moved before taking the picture), and who knows what else! As I came back up the stairs I realized that things were a little to quiet and figured he was up to something... it took me a minute to realize that this wasn't Sayre... it was the dummy he had made! He's a hoot to live with! :o)
As I headed to the post office yesterday morning, I was amazed by all the deer that were out! In our neighbors field there were three grazing and then a little ways further down the road I came across these does. It was a special treat to be able to watch them for a bit and then see them dash for the woods!
