Well we have been getting lots of work done on our home even though we had two days where we got rain. I am satisfied with our progress with only about 3 and a half days worked.
I thought the storm clouds were pretty cool and ran and got my camera.
As you can see by the picture above our home is coming along nicely. We have started on the second story and as you can see we have our roof trusses ready to go up once the second story walls are done.
We have been so tired at night once we are done for the day. Being 60 and not doing very hard physical work these last 17 years lets me know I am not nearly as strong and have the stamina as I once did. This type of work lets you know how out of shape you really are. I think by the end of summer I should be in better shape. I am even starting to develop calluses on my hands and I wouldn’t change anything. I feel so alive here in the country and am always amazed by the landscape and wildlife we see every day.
Thursday this snapping turtle stopped by to take a look at what was going on. He seemed surprised to find a big house blocking his way. He was trying to get to our pond from some where across the road. He stood there looking at us work for about an hour I finally had to pick him up and point him in the right direction on the other side of our house. After I set him down he looked around and finally went happily on his way.
That’s it for now.
