Not lots of blue scraps yet, but plenty of blue skies. We have worked so hard at the cabin for the last two weeks and it has been so much fun! I sleep like a log every night and then wake up ready to start again the next day. Much of the work is just new house things like cleaning and organizing, picking out paint colors. All much fun. Then there is the land that has been sadly neglected. So much trash to haul away and lumber from old out buildings to be burned. So far we have only dealt with the main three acres. The upper seven remains untouched. I haven't taken many photos because everything is half done. These are a few of the structures which have been taken down. I am watching the fire now as we try to burn the last of what can be burned and Kurt hauls a load of the rest to the dump. We have made quite a few trips to the dump and had quite a few fires! Still more to go, but progress is being made.
Ready to head home again and switch gears. I will be working some this summer with the new job and I have a couple of T-shirt quilts to make. One for commission and one for Sydney to take away to college in the fall.
The hard work at the new cabin will result in many hours of enjoying that new cabin once you're settled in.
You guys are amazing! I'm so glad you're enjoying sprucing the new place up. I've been enjoying your mountain view photos on Instagram, too!
The hard work does seem fun when it’s new and a definite personal goal is in sight! Relish the good times and your good health!
I love that kind of work. Clearing things, burning things, and making it a new is a lot of fun and very relaxing for us. Have fun with it!
Lots of work to do when you get a new place. I remember when
we moved into our current house. It was a mess. It seemed to
take forever to get fixed the way we wanted it. Don't forget
to breaks...you'll wear yourself out fast. Have a great day!
I'm sure all the hard work will be well worth it! When I was a teenager my parents bought an old farm, and we all worked to straighten it up. My brothers even tore a barn apart for the boards. We left the blackberry patch, and were very glad of it! Good luck!
Glad to hear that you are enjoying the work of timing the main 3 acres up at the cabin. Safe trip home, Angela!
it always takes such awhile to clean old out buildings and things - next year it will be more relaxing I bet
Sounds like a LOT of work, but won't it all be wonderful to enjoy after you've gone past the clearing out? Hope that you'll also have some time to stitch soon.
