and then I decided that I can’t blog everyday…my life is just not that interesting and to blog just for the sake of blogging is not what I want to do. So anyway, if I can keep up a pretty reasonable schedule of blogging I will be happy and the fact that I have blogged 15 times this month is pretty good.
We’ve been working on our house, and until yesterday and today, you really couldn’t see the progress because the changes were just little and not very noticeable. But yesterday we started hanging the floor joists and now you can see some real progress:The floor will sit on top of these and then we’ll have a deck to stand on. After we get all 47 of them hung we’ll start putting the sub-floor down and then we can take the wall up another 5 feet.
We have a Jack Russel Terrier that I’ve shown before. One of her character traits is that she is nosy…she has to check everything out. We were working on the joists and all of a sudden she had walked the beam and jumped up on the joists to see what they were:Now this is something that you would expect from a cat, not a dog because dog’s don’t usually have this type of balance, but here she is. There is about 14 inches between each of these boards. She also walks the walls of the house: and the beams inside the house:
We got a picture of a gorgeous sunset tonight and the boy went out and took several pictures of it:
I had posted about the Medano Fire and here is a picture of the smoke cloud that we can see sometimes from our house…this one was taken on June 20th, but the link will take you to the current info about it:One of the effects of having a wild fire burning so close to your town is that a bunch of wild land fire crews move in to fight it. We were having breakfast last Sunday and some people came into the restaurant we were eating at and asked if they would feed up to 130 fire fighters that night for dinner. Now this is a pretty small establishment and there is usually one waitress and a cook on duty. There is no way that two people could do that, so DH and I volunteered to come in and help with the serving and dishes. DH was a sport and spent the whole night washing dishes and we ended up serving 87 dinners to the fire crews. I bussed tables, filled pitchers, drinks and etc.
Look what my friend Sarah of Perfect Day Yarns dyed for me:
I asked for a solid or semi-solid brown to complement another of her yarns called Stout Old Ivy to knit one of Wendy’s Patterns, Norwegian Rose Socks. I love that she named it Mother Trucker cuz it was for me…I LOVE Sarah!!!!!! Go buy Yarn from her…her cashprose is yummy, as is all of her yarn.
I also was able to get a skein of Wollmeise from a destash:
