The three days following Thanksgiving were unbelievably warm. Temperatures in the mid-50s and low 60s. The days dawned sunny and clear. On Sunday morning two deer grazed below the pond as the sun came up.
Saturday we had a cookout and saw an ermine that was living in our wood pile.
After twenty five years I got the barn roof painted. Not a task I relished so I had it done.
I did a search today and found that updated imagery had been loaded into Google. It was taken between July 20 and August 2. I had a lot of fun looking at the details of the image to help determine the exact date. Based on the tree shadows I believe the picture was taken late [...]

Next the floor for the garage was poured, the walls framed for the garage and attachment and wrapped with Tyvek.
The laundry room and bathroom will be located on [...]
When I came home Wednesday afternoon Troy Cole and company were just finishing up back-filling around the foundation walls. This is the view from our kitchen door. In the future this will exit into the mud room attached to the garage.
This is looking west towards the two car garage. Concrete is to be [...]
After the footings were poured concrete blocks were delivered and row one of the block wall was laid out.
