Working on the little things...

Progress progress today on the house. It is just little things needing to be done. I got a utility sink put in with a faucet in the laundry room! Bryan Tile finished up yesterday and it is just beautiful. I'd love tile in the boys bathroom maybe that will be my next project. Tomorrow the sheet rocker will repair the rest of the holes and I can get my sewing machines brought up to enjoy their new room. Painters are coming back to do their touch up in a few days. Brett got a trench dug around the house to put in the irragation pipes and the steps will go in this week. We've used the gas fireplace often with these cold fall evenings,it is so nice and beautiful. Our old furnace died and needs new parts, we were still hoping to use it on the old part of the house. It is very cold waking up in the morning without a working furnace hoping we can just fix it for now before it gets any colder. Sam ended up with a horrible cold and I now have my voice back.

I took Jim's mooses head and cape to the taxidermy yesterday. When he took in his animal to the cutter it weighed in at 600 lbs on the hoof . That should get us months and months of meals. I told Scott they don't need to go hunt anymore for a couple years......that didn't go over well. But it is true.

Yay! Almost done! We will come see you soon. :) As for the moose...that's a lot of meat!! I bet they loved when you said no need for hunting. You know, it seems like we always have so much you almost feel forced to eat meat for every meal! (my dad used to get SO mad if we didn't make something with wild meat growing up). haha. But hey, it's all good.

He still forces everyone to take meat and "why don't you use the elk or deer instead of chicken". I just smile now and fix chicken when I want to. Ha. We have been blessed with a good hunter however, and are so happy with the meat he provides. I will really miss it someday I am sure. J
