This weekend has yet to yield any construction progress. However, it did result in additions to our family.
My son Ian loves the cartoon “Sarah & Duck”, so he immediately yelled Duck upon seeing our new friend. & even with his gleeful excitement he was gentle in petting duck.
We set duck up with his own small temporary partition in the chicken coop. Once he learns this is his new home we can take down the partition. Or at that point use it for introducing the chicks.
We also welcomed 2 kittens today. We have yet to name them. The Orange one is slightly older & supposed to be a good mouser, so he’ll be an outside kitty.
The younger black kitten is very affectionate & let Ian love on him, so he’ll be a new inside baby. He’s a very happy easy going kitten.
I think this weekend’s additions helped boost morale in our little family. Since construction is going so slow, we’ll be moving into the 3rd mobile home on the property. It was our friend Jennifer’s step-dad’s house, but due to health problems recently- he’s moved into a nearby town to be closer to his friends and church community. Luckily for us that means some cleaning & moving of our stuff & we’ll be in warmth again.
Something that is good despite my preferences. I’d so hoped to be further along on construction by now.
On the 18th we may have some significant progress. A couple of our friends are planning to ask their men’s group to come out & help with the labor end. It’ll at least get the bathroom up; which makes me heave a sigh of relief.
I’ll take all the help that others are willing to provide. Thank you universe & friends, it’s most appreciated. Now if I could just come up with 66 sheets of plywood (to go with my stack of Windows) we could get the exterior started too!
One step at a time.
