Little By Little

Well, I was thinking I should give up on my attempts at levity but thankfully, some of you finally commented on that last post and I scraped my plans to only write about the house from now on! Anyway, I am going to show what I've been working on lately, which is the west end of the house. I'm getting there a little at a time. I think my legs are getting a good workout going up and down those ladders so much. I cut one board yesterday 3 times and it was still too short! Haha! that just old carpenters joke! I did cut it three times but didn't mess it up. Hopefully, I will get the siding up today as far as I can reach on this lift. I'm completely finishing the siding as I go up (painting, caulking etc) so I don't have to set scaffolding back up.
My little lettuce garden is going okay but seems to be growing slow. Hurry!!! I want a fresh salad!
I forget what this is called but I'm gong to have to move it and banish it off to itself. It's taking over this flower bed and STINKS. Smells just like licorice. Bleh! Pretty flowers though, that's why I keep it.
The weather has just been beautiful lately so I've been trying to work outside all I can. Have had to take some time to split firewood and other stuff occasionally though.
They called from the office and I have to go work next week a little. Darn it! It should only be for a few days, so that's not too bad. I'm really liking this stay at home and work and then just work my real job every few weeks! Wonder how long I can keep that up?

Mouse is coming to visit this weekend so I don't know if I'll have time to post for the next couple of days. Hope all of ya'll have a good weekend and things are going well for you.

Put ol' Mouse to work splitting firewood! That will give him a good workout...and you get some firewood out of it!

House is looking good, my friend!

That's quite a boulder you have there at the corner of the foundation!

Lookin' good. I like the idea of work, break, work too.

Very cool to finish the siding as you go. Once you get to the top, you're done! And it looks fantastic, by the way. :)

Hey Hermit! thanks! well, last time Mouse was here he split me a big load of firewood actually and this trip he brought me a TON of kindling.

Hey Pablo! yeah, it is; I dug that up out of the yard somewhere.

Hey Molly! thanks!

Hey Furt! thanks! well, apparently you'll have to look pretty hard. I don't think everybody else thought it was as funny as I did.

Hey FC! thanks! yeah, work/ break/ work works good!

Hey Pea! thanks!

House looks great- must be challening working so high off that ladder!
