I'm honored to see that even after not posting anything on my blog for months that I have 9 followers. Who knew????
I would like to take some pictures of the house to upload here. You know, to show the progress of doing nothing but working on the house for almost a year. The funny thing about me though, is that I want it to be perfect and clean before taking the pictures. The logical side of my brain knows that: 1. you can't really tell if something is clean or not in a picture, 2. that none of you really care if it's clean and 3. it's probably clean enough by most normal people standards. Plus, I love to see other people's homes and imagine that you would all really like to see what all we have done around here. I will just move my piles of clutter and take pictures. Solved. Stand by while I do the above mentioned.....

Phew. I'll come back to elaborate and add pictures as soon as Greg puts whatever showed up in the Newegg box today (because our big computers took a big crap at the same time).

So far no more snakes, but believe you me, I think they are lurking everywhere.....

They always behave like perfect ladies and gentlemen. *cough* No elbows on the table, and we never, ever, not ever put our legs up with a skirt on.
This is what a stampede looks like around here.
Greg can build a mean goat playset.
People from the burbs can look like rednecks after only 6 months of living in the country!
In our defense, we were watching the Tour of California from the end of our property. Lance Armstrong rode right past our house!
Lance is in this bunch. He rides for Radio Shack, but honestly, they were a blur, riding past at about 50 mph.
And last, but certainly not least..... it is a really bad feeling to see one of these. Especially while wearing cute little flip flops. A dead rattler is the only good rattler. And yes, after locking the dogs in the kennel, going down to the house to get my boots (albeit rain boots...), camera and shovel, I personally dispatched this sassy little snake. I hope his friends saw and move on.....

Next, moving on to the chicken tractor. This is a coop on wheels basically. Greg came up with the design and built it from that! I think it's pretty amazing that someone can picture this in their head, and then to see it actually appear.
I sprayed it the same color as the house, which is a pale yellow with white trim. It turned out pretty pale though, and when we repaint the main house, I'll repaint the coop as well.
Here is a random picture of the typical quad ride around here. Kids, dogs, you know. They don't make dog helmets for needle nose whippets though so Greg just has to be careful.

Here are 2 of my brood of 3. Maren is on the outside of the fence because as soon as we walked into the pen the babies all stood up on us. The one in front of Teagan liked hair and chewed holes in my new Banana Republic shirt..... Hey, I can't *look* like a country girl. I knew full well that going to look at goat kids (that's baby goats for you city peeps) wearing ballet flats and my new shirt were potentially dangerous. I don't get out as much as I used to......
Ummm... look at that face on the one looking at the camera!!! I wanted her too, but she was already spoken for. I'm going to call the guy who has them today to see if/who the people after us took. I would hate for there to be just 1 left or something.....
