Hey you guys, it’s been awhile.
Everybody and everything here at the cottage has been ka-put, wonky, torn-up, broken, or sick.
New Year’s day I made a batch of crock-pot beans – midway through the cooking, my year old crock-pot decided it didn’t feel like working. At the same time, my curling iron went on strike, so I looked like the crazy lady with bad hair and half-cooked beans.
My sweet little computer crashed and has been in the shop getting a new hard drive. We just picked it up yesterday, it still isn’t right. I lost almost everything on it, including thousands of photos. Insert my very sad face here.
That’s enough whining.
Regular readers will recall that we are under going a whole house renovation and addition.
There has been non-stop land clearing and excavating since the first of the year.
Clearing for the drain field.
Digging the hole for the new septic tank.
The new septic tank is put in place. The truck operator used a handheld device to unload the tank from the truck and put it in place.
I can’t say enough good things about this excavation team, they are really top-notch.
As soon as the equipment is turned off and the workers leave That Cat comes out to inspect the work.
Out on the North 40, the blue birds are blissfully undisturbed by all the work being done.
This is the first time I’ve seen the birds go into the nesting box during winter.
It has been bitterly cold, perhaps that is why.
There is a family of 6 living in this house.
They inspired me to do a little needle work.
It has been raining all day, so the workers aren’t here.
The silence is blissful.
The mud is not.
