Humble Abode

Friday, August 21, 2009

I have been spending most of my time at the trailer lately--we have even slept there almost every night this week. Sure, there's no running water, no power, and it was only yesterday that we started to be able to put gray water down our sink to the septic tank--but that's part of the fun! It's summer! Why not live a little?

I've been busy cleaning, painting, and unpacking. Jason has been working on getting the skirting put on the trailer, and bucking up firewood for the wood stove we will be putting in the addition. Most of our clothes, etc., are still at Magnusson's, as well as our beds, but hopefully we will get most of our stuff moved this weekend.

So, a few photos, for those of you who have been asking:

Not exactly a beauty, but it's four walls, and that's all that matters.

Jabin making a funny face for the photo. The boys are having a snack on the floor in front of a built-in hutch in the dining room. I have not re-painted those oh-so-attractive doors yet--it's kind of low on the priority list. I'm thinking of sanding off what's there (it's that textured spray-on paint) and doing it distressed blue with bits of red showing through. What do you think?

We've been setting healthy records with our diet lately. Hot dogs 4 times a week! Whee!! (Can't wait for the power!)

Gotta go pack some more. I'll post more photos of the inside once I get my "afters" taken on the paint job!

Happy Friday!

    Enjoy it while we have good weather!

  2. Good for you guys Talena! That's a lot of work on top of regular life. And about the hot dogs, meh, there's always a cleanse for that. And happy belated Birthday, sorry I missed it, again :(

  3. Vicki - The weather has been mostly good, but the frost the last couple of mornings has not made it very tempting to get out of bed!

    Dawn - Yay for cleansing! My complexion can hardly wait! I can hardly remember what "regular life" is anymore! Maybe we'll get back there soon. "Somewhere after the reno..."
