Wash-House block walls complete

                                                October 19, 2012

     The walls are up…well at least the first four feet anyway. Still plenty to do, but progress is steady. The wall lumber has been milled and will soon be cut to length. Construction for the rest of the framing will begin soon.

     Yesterday we moved animals all around the farm. The sheep and cows got moved to new pastures. The last expectant sow was given a space of her own. The horses returned to the barn last night to protect them from a cold rain that didn’t come. The baby chicks got a windbreak installed around their pen too.

     The leaves are falling off of the trees at a great rate. Many are already bare. Soon icy rain and snow will dampen the fallen leaves and many spirits. I am trying to motivate myself to get the hoses in, the lawn furniture put away and the fountain drained..before ice rules the day!

     It is fun to be building and seeing the progress. The walls rose up from the ground and a building will soon follow. Old man winter, however, will make things miserable if I don’t keep one step ahead of him. I guess I better tend to those small and insignificant things before they become big things…. the walls will wait … for now.
