On Saturday, we invited our neighbors, Dad, Aunt Barbara, Uncle Faybert, John, Angela and their girls - Alyssa and Leah; then we had some of dad's neighbors, Herb and Cathy as well.... All together 15 of us, gathered in the house and out on the pathways for dinner, great conversation...
all of which I kinda missed...and here's why...
SILLY RANCHER'S WIFE!!!!!
Actually, these two were quite the well-behaved puppies! Every morning, they wanted to go for a ride in Harpie (aka: the golf cart)...and so off we would go! Finally on the last day, I had the Rancher take a photo of us all in Harpie...they weren't as calm then...but oh well!
Monday, the Rancher and I really got to work! I drove the lift and helped lift boards and the like so he could "staple" them in place and just every once in a while when I wasn't helpin...I remembered the camera in my pocket and just had to take pics- especially of all my boys...and not to mention to show you that the "Saws" WERE VERY good... they never even chased off the first deer! (isn't that Rancher of mine the cutest thing you've ever seen?)
and of course...just to prove I really was way up in the sky...(PATTY) here's the proof! see my pathways below? That's me!!!!! and then there was the Rancher....that pic is overlooking our future front yard...
So, as you can see, we did get some work done on LABOR DAY...there is siding all the way up on the front and right sides...windows are framed...and me- the designated "caulk girl" has gone behind the Rancher's work and caulked up a STORM!
Before I leave you this week, just thought you could sit with us for a moment and look at the view from where the front porch top deck will be...
