Went to a friends house yesterday for turkey,ham,potatoes,etc,etc. Good food, good laughs,good friends and turkey farts. Can't beat that with a stick.
The landscaper was here Monday and Tuesday; they'll be back in the spring. Looks great.
Have to go to the tile place on Monday. Fired up the wood stove in the living room and five of the tiles fell off. Guess I'd better take them with me so they will believe what happened. I think the stove might need moved out a little. It is 18" but the pipe is only 10" from the tiles.
Fred is coming down tomorrow and finishing the lattuce work on the ramp, then helping me get the rest of the stuff out of the room so I can finish painting. The floor should be here next week.

I sure have been lax lately with the old blog.
An update on the house....
Talked to Dwight the landscaper two weeks ago, he's starting this coming Monday. But have not heard a thing from the driveway guys.
Put down a deposit on the floor last week. I've chosen re-cycled wood from old beams. Rick takes down old buildings and refinishes the beams into flooring. Can't wait to see what that looks like. I figured it would be better than the engineered stuff just because of the dogs and cats. A little scratch and that stuff is ruined but on a real floor, it'll just add character.
Picked up the trim for the windows and will stain that before Fred puts it on. Also have to finish painting the room before the floor goes down.

Have both stoves going today, house is nice and cozy, it's a full time job, and it's not too cold yet. But, I'm sure that'll change. Been having heavy frost each morning. Then the sun comes out and helps to heat the house.

A very, heavy frost this morning. Dad has said '3 frost then rain', so, we'll see.

The tile guys are done and it looks great. I'm glad I'm doing this now for it will surely cost a heck of a lot more in the months to come. I just wish the landscaping guys would show up soon. Still undecided about the floor, that engineered stuff just looks so cheap, even tho its not. I've got to do more research I guess.

Well, must head over to Dad's and then to the store. I hate shopping. But.....
