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♡♡
We want to wish all our friends and family a very, very blessed Thanksgiving.
We are so grateful for God’s hand, protection, leading and guidance this year. We started the year with many uncertainties, but He was so good to bring us through.
Vanessa had some health challenges that began at the beginning of the year and now into the fall she is finally getting better.
God has taken care of our needs providing time in and again. God provided Russ and Bob with work and they have not gone without the means to provide for thier families.
The gardens even though not as full as they would normally be for veggie boxes provided a beautiful harvest that was eaten fresh all season and now canned and stored on our shelves for fall and winter.
We have an amazing stack of firewood going into the basement that will provide our old house with plenty of warmth this winter season.
The animals growing out in the barn area will provide lots of food for days, weeks, and months.
So we have so much to be grateful for and we thank God for the protection, health and provisions.
We also thank God for the freedom and ability to share our faith and His love to those around us♡.
If you don’t know Jesus, get to know Him he is the greatest part of our lives and He makes such a difference.
We started the main floor renos very early this past year and have been plunging away at it. The back room that was our dinning room and temporary bathroom has now been opened up and has a new purpose and plan.
It was quite a messy process of taking down the old walls and ceiling…. but what a reward to see what we have in return.
We found a few interesting things in the walls and ceiling not to mention all the tunnels in the old sparse insulation.
We finished renovating the upstairs hallway earlier this year. We raised the height at the top of the stairs and created some beautiful crisp angles with the ceilings. Messy job but looks so nice. I also gave the floor a coat of paint.
