i caved and this is now in our yard
end of the season clearance
some of us are very excited!
we used it once and then temps dropped into the 60s
and never really recovered
here’s to hoping for an early spring and a hot summer!
call it what ever you want
it’s to be a place for them to go
to get away from everything electronic
(in my mind)
and just have fun doing…whatever
filling in the foundation
required moving lots of dirt
luckily we are also trying to dig out a trench in the back
to keep our house from flooding (not so lucky)
but at least we were able to kill 2 birds with 1 stone!
putting down the floor
checking out the inside
(notice the temperature fluctuation!!)
putting up roof
see the small chip above the door?
saved us like $700 on the price of this shed!
shingles going on
finished (sort of)
now we have to paint, put something inside over ceiling to protect from roof nails
cover walls, etc. inside
fill with cool stuff
we’ve finally joined the rest of the world
and have weather that allows us to enjoy the outdoors once again
(though it still gets really cold at nite – like 36!)
the first visitors to our animal sanctuary are usually these ducks
this year the boys fed them so they came closer than they had in the past
this was another fun one!
i didn’t realize that garter snakes sunned themselves in trees
(or bushes as the case may be)
it also means the beginning of ‘project’ season
this year includes a garden
and a fort!
life is a bit cloudy these days
so many angry moments
things needing to be fixed
taken care of
never enough time
i am thankful though
for small miracles
and joyful endings
after long days
and work successfully completed
