Projects in Progress


As usual at this time of year, a bunch of projects are going on at once, which has me running around day after day to hardware and other stores. I came home this morning with this pile of pipes and other supplies for a new sewer line. I have someone coming this weekend for that job. I actually managed to get this pipe home, tied down securely, in my Impala. It can be done! (The back seats fold down to open into the trunk.) Next: goats! (I know I can do it!)

I need an electrician out here to fix a short, the tractor needs some work, and the studio repairs are still going on (but almost finished). Whew. Hopefully within a week I’ll have these projects wrapped up.

Then something else will go wrong. BUT LET’S NOT SAY THAT OUT LOUD.

    Plenty of room in that Impala for goats! I’ve even hauled a load of kids to the disbudding party at my friend’s farm in the dh’s new Z28 once . . . well protected, of course. He’d never have known if it weren’t for that little goat berry that I missed during cleanup. Ooops!

    Whispering: I hope these are it for a while!!!

    I have hauled things outside the car tied to the door posts and the antenna!

    Yeah, I think we’ve all gone beyond what we were suppose to in cars. We hauled 4 week old calves in our Bronco once.
    I STILL think you have had enough disasters for one year. I hope you can relax and take it easy NOW.

    Good luck with all the projects!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
