Wordless Wednesday – January 12th

The insulation master at his best. Even on the very cold but warmer day in January he works hard to get her done. It’s -12 as I type… was -24 this morning….. brrrr those are the temps without the windchill factored in.

Wiring and plumbing are roughed in and now we are insulating the addition.

Gonna be really nice having the extra bathroom…. and the new laundry/pantry area.

What else do you do on a snowy day waiting for the next 2 snowstorm/blizzards.

Add a bit of pink warmth♡

How about funky fridays

Didn’t get a chance to post our Wordless Wednesdays the last 2 weeks…..sorry, so let’s do something different today.

Funky Friday in the workshop. Russ is working hard bringing back new life to the old doors…. removing the old layers of paint and stain…. great job for someone with OCD tendencies…. he is meticulous!

Might need a new pair of gloves…

Wordless Wednesday – December 1st

It stopped raining long enough to do a couple outside things…..

I did some simple Christmas decorations for the greenhouse doors and our main door plus some white lights around the front of the “L”. I will get a night time picture later

Rusty worked on the two support posts for our addition. The footings and concrete posts have all been dug to code but we are still finding some issues with the frost. This doesn’t make any sense but sometimes things don’t want go according to plan. He tweaked it and will be done in about hour.

Of course Murdoch is getting some sun and supervising the dig♡♡

HAPPY December 😊

Getting ready for s-n-o-w

It’s that time of year, notifications have come up in our feeds the last couple days…. the snow, the wind, the power outages.

November 2018

This year we have not had any snow to speak of yet the odd flurry, but it is coming….. perhaps tonight or tomorrow.

One of our fall chores is to get the snow blower back on the tractor. We need to make sure she is well oiled and greased and that we have extra shear pins and bolts extra diesel fuel etc.

This year the other half needs to learn how to use the snowblower just incase.

But for now we got the blower attached, oiled, working and ready for whatever winter has instore for us.

Of course the manager in charge was watching from a distance making sure Rusty gets it all done right.

Murdoch supervising and staying out of the winds

Murdoch making sure he parks it just right♡

My famous honey garlic wings

So you want a tasty homemade treat for dinner?

Try my famous honey garlic wings…. our wings are like jumbo wings of course that’s because we raise our own chickens.

I like to broil the wings in the oven about 15 mins per side depending on the size of your wings. They get nice and crispy.

You can serve them up with ranch, blue cheese or your favorite dippy sauce and or carrot and celery sticks

Yummy. I make the honey garlic sauce very easily by adding all the ingredients in microwave safe dish for about 2 minutes(til its boiling).

When the wings are cooked I pour the sauce over them toss them up and serve them out

Enjoy….. Vanessa

Wordless Wednesday- Nov 10th

Barney….. chief critter catcher

Sorry, we did not post anything til now…. had a busy couple days with a sick kitty. He wasn’t well 2 days ago, started to improve yesterday a bit. Had some more serious symptoms today so he went to the walk in kitty hospital. (Atlantic Vet College) the bestest doctors ♡

He has some inflammation and pain so he on some meds for the next couple days. He had the nods on the way home and is now finally having a really good sleep. You can see the meds are taking away the pain and stress and letting him have a great sleep.

We don’t know exactly what he got into but something….. he has a heart murmur which makes things he goes through a little more stressful and serious for him… but he is one of our best critter catchers…

Wordless Wednesday – November 3rd

This could have been so very bad if was warmer outside today….. I was moving my compost pile when I disturbed a rather large hornet nest….

Fairly large hornet nest

They were not happy after I uprooted the hive… thank goodness for wasp and hornet spray…. and a Big thank you to God that today was cold. We might have been taking pictures of the inside of an ambulance or hospital room. 🐝 🐝🐝

Wordless Wednesday- October 27th

The coffee bar wall is almost completely covered with drywall…..

We have a strip of drywall to go on the bottomed then it is ready for seam filling. Yes that is our precious canned jars on the floor. We had to move the shelf.

You are probably wondering why the drywall did not go all the way to the doorway opening 🤔 well that is because the new opening is gonna be wider.

Yes, the plumbing will eventually be hidden too.
