This trio did at least get to sit in the shade for a little while. On other news, we have gotten some good rain for the past 3 days! It's wonderful. Allen and I went to a party this weekend that a friend of ours has out on 80 acres. It's a big outdoor thing, swimming in a pond, a huge potluck dinner, just goofing off. It rained like hell there Sunday but everybody was so happy to see the rain, lots of them were just walking around in it. This is the same place where they have the solar home tour that Rurality has written about. A lot of people describe it as an old hippie commune but it has been successful for over 30 years now. We toured some of the houses and learned more about solar water systems etc.
We did not get a lot done on the house this weekend but I am still laid off and will be working full force this week. A buddy of mine is bringing me a load of free paint today so I will start priming the walls! As soon as the bathroom is painted I can install the flooring, which means I can install the toilet! I need to order the water filter that I want so we can get the house online. Right now the water is only on at the garden. We completely filled the septic tank and I rescued a frog out of there. Not sure how he managed to get in the septic tank but I'm sure he was glad to get out.
