I have a lot of catching up to do. I only recently began this blog as I did not have the technology to do it earlier. My sweet husband gave me a laptop for my birthday and now I'm hunting and pecking my way thru this whole blogging thing. Not very good at it and mostly boring but bear with me.

We spent the rest of the summer of 2008, and into the fall, cleaning up. And let me mention here that we had plenty of help! There were several huge garbage piles, sink holes, burn piles, etc that needed to go. Eventually we got to this:

Thanksgiving 2008, I got inspired and we had dinner in the cabin.

A lot of things happened in the spring of 2009. We cleaned out the back outbuilding and turned it into my potting shed. Again, tons of help (thanks, Dad!). It went from this:

To this:

And since then Jay has put some windows and shelves in, bricks on the floor, and a layer of gravel. I planted flowers on the side and put a bird bath down there as well.

We moved the greenhouse over here from Fountain City.

And shortly after that, Jay hit it with the lawnmower and knocked it off the foundation.

Jay tilled up two garden spots. One for the veggie garden and one for the berry patch.

We, well mostly Jay and Dad, took the aluminum siding off the cabin.

He took the aluminum to the recycle place and used the money to pay on the layaway for one of his bikes that he no longer has time to ride.

Then he tore the back porch off the cabin.

Jay said, "truck power, baby! Oh yeah!"
