Stairs leading up to the deck. The whole deck is completed. New front roof and skylights. Siding on the shed - you can see that below. Frank and Steven even sided one wall of the kitchen because the girl in the insurance company thought it COULD be an issue. Everything is now completed - and then some - so that we have insurance!!!!! Yay!
Well, I thought we had insurance last time, too, and they managed to find things wrong with the place, and gave us a list of things to fix. But now, I think, it's time to take it easy, relax and enjoy it.

Do I sound like I'm trying to justify myself? Yeah, feels that way. I can't do any of the heavy lifting and serious construction that Frank can do. It is a very uncomfortable balance of work and responsibility. I have lots of ideas - for things I can't do. It's exhausting Frank, and it's making me cranky.
|Meet Charley (not her real name)|
I am trying to work some aggravation out in my head, and I'm having trouble figuring it all out. But I don't want to just gripe on here. Ok, so what else can I say, aside from complaining?
Well, we're getting friendlier with the neighbors - we had a chance to meet the owner of the next hundred acres over, our neighbor to the North. She is a sweet girl and I hope we'll be friends, even though she is way younger than we are. We've made friends with the chickens. Charley actually loves snacks. And the ducks don't usually run when we head down to the lake... they quack at us like they have something to say. I'm starting to feel like we are living at a petting zoo. We really need a few fainting baby goats. :)
