This morning I recieved such a wonderful blessing! I won't go into alot of detail on here but it really brought me to my knees. Lets just say that the Lord is so good to me! :)
I haven't had a chance to do any sewing today. Some of you already know but Richard is no longer working at his old job. Things are very tight here but we are trying to make ends meet with the sawmill. Cutting lumber and railroad ties! The tractor is down so we are having to pull the logs to the house with the truck or Ole Jim the mule. Anyway, it is really hard work for both of us but we are just thankful that we have the sawmill to fall back on. I was out walking around the property today while Richard was sawing and took some photos. Here are more photos of my house in progress. You will see my chairs sitting upstairs. That is were I go sit and dream!!! If you have noticed we haven't been working on the house the past few weeks because of the sawing taking up so much time. As you can see all of our windows are sitting here too. Also inside we have all of the plywood and roof felt paper to cover the top. With Winter coming soon we have to at least get it coverd with the plywood and felt paper and that should hold it until Spring. Right now we can't afford to complete the roofing but we are hoping to do that with the tax return. We had not expected for things to turn out financially the way that they have. But today I noticed that the leaves are really changing and we have to get it covered before bad weather hits. So we will have to jump in and do that. We still have some work to do on the front rafters and get the rest of the beams up. Most of the upstairs is pine and popular and that just will not hold up through the snow. If we don't get that done, then we will have to completely redo the upstairs in the Spring.
Now these photos were taken while I was standing upstairs. Right now it is a mess from where we have been cutting but eventually this will be my big backyard. If you look close you can see my piles of firewood that I cut up MYSELF with the chainsaw. Oh and you can catch a glimpse of a couple of the horses.
I had to take Hunter in to the doctor today, mostly for a checkup and allergies/sinus things. So on the way I took a couple more photos of the area that I live. We live less than 5 minutes from the lake so it always makes for nice photos.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have some quilty photos to show you!!! I only need 23 more blocks on my Love Letter quilt!!!!!
